50 Hottest Kobe Bryant Cards

50 Hottest Kobe Bryant Cards

Kobe Bryant cards remain among the hottest in the hobby. Along with LeBron James, the Lakers superstar has led the NBA's post-Michael Jordan Era, winning five NBA Championships. Within the hobby, his cards and autographs are consistently among the top sellers. In particular, many early Kobe Bryant cards generate a lot of buzz on the rare occasions that they surface.

Bryant's audience is a global one. He has fans all over the world. It's that international following that has driven some of his rare inserts to seemingly unthinkable levels. In particular, tough parallels from the mid- to late-1990s carry particular clout. Kobe Bryant Metal Universe Precious Metal Gems, Topps Chrome Refractors, Flair Showcase Legacy and SkyBox Ruby cards are just a few of the high-end options for collectors.

Equally popular are the many different Kobe Bryant autographed patch cards from the first few Upper Deck Exquisite Basketball sets. In October, 2012, a BGS 9 2003-04 Upper Deck Exquisite Limited Logos Kobe Bryant sold online for more than $10,000.

When Panini landed the exclusive rights for NBA trading cards in 2009-10, they quickly signed Bryant to be a company spokesman. His autographs are in most of the company's sets and continue to attract lots of attention, still outselling just about everything except for the hottest rookies.

While Kobe Bryant does have his critics, it's tough to deny his impact on the game. But a handful of championship rings is hard to argue against. Bryant's legacy will last far beyond his playing days. As a result, Kobe Bryant cards will continue to be among the most collected in the hobby.

Below is a real-time look at the 50 most-watched Kobe Bryant cards currently listed on eBay. The list is constantly updating as some are sold and new cards are listed. It's a great indicator of what interests collectors and showcases some of the top Kobe Bryant cards on the market.

  3. Hello, I am interested in buying a number of KOBE AUTOGRAPH cards. Could you please get back to me, Scott

  4. Scott Savin » The links showing are for cards that are currently listed on eBay and not by the site.

  5. Trying to value my 1996 Score Board #15 Silver Autograph but not the one with the seriel number. The back of the card says already Authenticated signature and Congrats from SB but Beckett wants it verified before they will grade it. Just wanted to know if card was worth enough for the extra headache. Thank you for any feedback.

  6. If they want it verified first it could be because the card has a history of being counterfeited (even with the note on the back). If that’s the case, you likely wouldn’t be able to get much for it without the verification if you’re looking to sell it.
