Chris Paul Cards, Rookie Card Guide and Memorabilia Guide

Chris Paul

Date of Birth: 5/6/1985
Rookie Card Year: 2005-06
Investment Rating: 7.5


Overview

Chris Paul has long been considered one of the elite point guards in the NBA and commands plenty of hobby attention.  The one thing that appeared to be holding him back was a lack of a talented players around him and that he played for the small-market Hornets. With a trade to the Los Angeles Clippers, Paul now has large-market exposure. He's also paired with another dynamic player and hobby favorite, Blake Griffin. Chris Paul cards and memorabilia could be in line for a big jump in the near future.

As a rookie from the 2005 Draft, Paul was the top choice among collectors and has maintained that appeal throughout his career. The potential for greatness as a member of the Clippers puts the point guard in rare company and should lead to a push in Chris Paul card and memorabilia prices. Although LA has long been loyal to the Lakers, the combination of Paul and Griffin should give the team a brighter part of the spotlight. This momentum will continue to build as the Clippers become more successful .

Chris Paul has almost 30 rookie cards. The top three Chris Paul rookie cards all feature his signature.
