Rookie Card Year: 2013-14
Investment Rating: 7.0
While the 2013-14 NBA rookie class has been largely dismissed, and just a few names have gotten the limited publicity, Giannis Antetokounmpo may very well go down as the top player from the 2013 draft. "The Greek Freak" received unexpected rookie minutes on a terrible Milwaukee Bucks squad and showed flashes that point to greatness down the road. Collectors are starting to take notice, making Giannis Antetokounmpo cards among the most popular rookie cards from 2013-14 products.
Giannis Antetokounmpo was born in Greece to Nigerian parents. He started his basketball career playing for the Filathlitikos youth team and later with the senior club. Antetokounmpo also suited up for the Greece junior national team. At the age of 19, he declared for the 2013 NBA Draft and was selected 15th overall by Milwaukee.
"The Greek Freak" put forth an inconsistent rookie year as expected, but his additional playing time has shown he has the ability to become an elite player. Injuries slowed him somewhat, but Antetokounmpo is on a path to big things if he can keep building his game. His extreme athleticism and versatility allows him to be played all over the court despite standing 6'11" and reportedly still growing.
As a top pick, Giannis Antetokounmpo is available in a variety of products. His first card actually came from 2012-13 Exquisite Collection basketball, and in addition to multiple rookies cards, there are many autographed inserts for him in 2013-14 products.
