Overview

Grant Hill is one of those players that does not carry superstar status, but almost everyone knows who he is and respects his game. While he does not generally receive mainstream hobby love, Grant Hill cards and memorabilia have a near-cult following, which ensures good values for in the years to come.

Early recognition followed Grant Hill when he was named as a McDonald's All-American in high school. Soon after, Hill chose to play college basketball for the Duke Blue Devils and their ravenous fanbase. Hill would win back-to-back NCAA Championships with Duke in 1991 and 1992. He was named the 1994 ACC Player of the Year after leading the Blue Devils back to the NCAA Championship in 1994, where they lost to the University of Arkansas. After graduating from Duke, Hill declared for the NBA Draft. Grant Hill was chosen third overall by the Detroit Pistons and would go on be named NBA co-Rookie of the Year, along with Jason Kidd.

Grant Hill spent time with multiple teams during his 18-year career, including the Detroit Pistons, Orlando Magic, Phoenix Suns and one season with the Los Angeles Clippers. Unfortunately, he was also known for his many injury problems that robbed him of a decent portion of his career. Hill missed the entire 2003-04 season due to injury. Although injuries kept him from becoming much more, the 7-time All-Star still managed a long and successful career.

Now in retirement, there is talk of Grant Hill pursuing a new career as a basketball analyst. He is also considered by many to be a likely Hall of Fame inductee, once he is eligible.

Despite his popularity and long career, Grant Hill had very few autographed cards until he was added to 2010-11 Panini products. He has also signed for several recent Upper Deck products, so collectors should be able to find plenty of autograph options between the two big brands.

While 1994-95 products don't carry as much as value as late-90's products, card designs began to see significant changes. This allows for several great-looking Grant Hill cards, that still remain affordable. Grant Hill has 15 rookie cards that mostly fall in the low-budget category. However, three cards stick out as the best option for collectors.
