Very few young defensemen early in their careers have as much hardware in their trophy case as Colorado Avalanche’s Cale Makar. Once he won the Hobey Baker Award for the best collegiate hockey player in 2019 Makar cut his teeth in the playoffs only to return for his first full year and win the Calder Memorial Trophy as the NHL’s best rookie. When it comes to the most desired graded rookie card Makar is near the top of the list due to his dynamic skating and offensive production from a position designed to defend against goals. It all came together for Makar in 2022 as the young blue liner won a collection of Trophies including the James Norris, Conn Smythe and the holy grail of them all….the Stanley Cup. The future is bright for Makar and proud owners of his numbers Graded RC.
