One Could Argue the Chicago Blackhawks are the NHL Best Team to Collect

By

It’s good to be a Chicago Blackhawks fans these days. The team has been extremely competitive since they drafted Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews giving them one of the best tandems in the NHL. And they have great support with loyal fans getting behind the team along with celebrity fans like Vince Vaughn, Jim Belushi, Michael Jordan and this season, even Mr. T.

For card collectors one could that the Chicago Blackhawks are the best team to collect for a variety of reasons. Yes, they are playing great and yes they have a lot of great stars playing for them today, but in terms of collecting, I think it is the uniform that puts them over the top. The biggest reason they are the best team to collect in my opinion is just how beautiful the game-used jersey patches look on trading cards of Chicago Blackhawks players. The jerseys are so colorful that there is a tremendously diverse grouping of premium patches to use for these cards. Take a look at just some of our favorites from over the years!
