1989-90 NBA Hoops David Robinson RC #138, 310

Prices have come down a lot over the years and this David Robinson rookie card can be found for a few dollar now, but when it was released, this was THE card to have. Although NBA Hoops was a new brand, 1989-90 Fleer did not include Robinson in their checklist. Due to this, it is the only David Robinson rookie, and maintains its appeal despite the limited value. The card is technically a short print, but the production numbers are so high, it really does not matter. NBA Hoops issued a second David Robinson card in Series 2, which shows a live-action image.
