Allen Iverson Card and Memorabilia Guide

Allen Iverson

Date of Birth: 6/7/1975
Rookie Card Year: 1996-97
Investment Rating: 7.0


Overview

Allen Iverson was one of the most exciting players in the NBA for nearly a decade. The small guard was a scoring machine and his brash and cocky attitude defined a generation of players. Unfortunately, like many athletes, Iverson did not know when to call it quits, and his reputation and legacy suffered near the end of his career. Now that he is officially retired, some of the damage has been repaired and values are returning. Once the Hall of Fame comes calling, Allen Iverson cards will see considerable interest.

Love him or hate him, Allen Iverson proved he belonged in the NBA, and in his prime, Iverson was nearly unstoppable. The 11-time All-Star averaged 26.7 points per game over his career. He was named the NBA MVP in 2001 and was a four-time scoring champion.

Allen Iverson rookie cards are fairly basic, so the prices are fairly cheap. With 16 cards to choose from, there are quite a few options for collectors. The biggest values come from the low-numbered parallels.

1996-97 Topps Chrome Allen Iverson RC #171

1996-97 Topps Chrome contains the most popular Allen Iverson rookie card. The simple design and chrome finish quickly found a home with collectors and unopened box values have gone through the roof due to people trying to pull Kobe Bryant rookie cards. Refractor parallels fall 1:12 packs and represent the chase aspect.

Still one of the most unique base card designs available, E-X2000 is the most interesting rookie option for Allen Iverson card collectors. The cards are very condition sensitive and Credential parallels (#/499) are very popular.

1996-97 Finest Allen Iverson RC #69

1996-97 Finest took a different approach with the base set, and each player has a Bronze, Silver and Gold version. The Series 1 Bronze card is considered the official rookie for Allen Iverson. Years later, the design is okay but I could do without the "Apprentices" tagline. Once again, Refractors present a valuable chase option.
