Carmelo Anthony Card and Memorabilia Guide

Carmelo Anthony

Date of Birth: 5/29/1984
Rookie Card Year: 2003-04
Investment Rating: 7.0


Overview

Carmelo Anthony was part of the loaded 2003 rookie class that also included Dwyane Wade and LeBron James. A change of scenery from Denver to New York should do wonders for values of Carmelo Anthony cards and memorabilia based on the Knicks' strong hobby appeal. Being paired with another elite player in Amar'e Stoudemire doesn't hurt either.

Although his impending move was a regular topic in the NBA news during the 2010-11 season, Anthony did not face the same backlash James experienced when he left Cleveland for Miami. Now that Anthony has settled in with the Knicks, expectations will continue to build and the scrutiny will be intense. Carmelo Anthony card values are below those of both Wade and James. However, with a strong postseason showing in New York, Carmelo Anthony card values could see a significant jump.

Carmelo Anthony has over 60 true rookie cards that range in price from a couple of dollars to much more. On-card autographs are on both of Anthony's top cards.

Top Carmelo Anthony Rookie Cards

2003-04 Upper Deck Exquisite Collection Carmelo Anthony RC #76 Autographed Patch #/99

2003 04 Exquisite Carmelo Anthony Image

One of the most sought after and valuable sets ever, 2003-04 Upper Deck Exquisite features autographed jersey rookie cards for LeBron, Carmelo and Dwyane. Even as the third best option in the product, the Carmelo Anthony card is still very valuable based on the combination of a low print run, compelling jersey patch and autograph. These do not surface very often.

2003-04 Ultimate Collection Carmelo Anthony RC #129 Autograph #/250

2003 04 Ultimate Carmelo Anthony Image

The Carmelo Anthony card from 2003-04 Ultimate Collection offers a nice on-card autograph. It's also very reasonably priced compared to the Exquisite card. Although it has no jersey patch, the card still has a lower pint run than most of Anthony's other rookies and features a good design with crisp colors.

  1. Hoping you can help. I have a 2004 upper deck s-class signature card of Carmelo Anthony. It isn’t listed in any Beckett price guide, nor have I seen one on e-bay. I’m presuming it might be a rare card. Is there anyway you might be able to find out how many of these he might’ve signed, approx. value etc… or guide me to where I might be able to find those answers. I’ll thank you in advance for reading this, and for any help you might provide. Sincerely- Dave T.
