Investment Rating: 6.0


Overview

Jason Kidd enjoyed a long and successful NBA career. Despite lower values, Jason Kidd cards and memorabilia have developed a strong collector following. Kidd spent 19 seasons in the league and played for four teams including the Dallas Mavericks (twice), Phoenix Suns, New York Nets and New York Knicks. The ten-time All-Star did not sit long around long after retiring from the NBA at the end of the 2012-13 season. Soon after he announced the end of his playing career, Kidd was named the head coach for the Brooklyn Nets. Although this is his first stint as a head coach, expectations are high for a team that now includes Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.

In his early days, Jason Kidd was a prominent guard and played college basketball at the University of California. Kidd was taken second overall in the 1994 NBA Draft by the Dallas Mavericks and was named co-Rookie of Year, along with Grant Hill, during his first season. Over his career, Kidd proved he was not just a facilitator, as he could regularly be counted on for an average stat line of 15 points, 10 assists and 7 rebounds. Kidd also ranks third overall for most career triple-doubles, with over 100 during his playing days. Although a championship eluded him for much of his career, Kidd finally achieved that goal in 2011, as a member of the Dallas Mavericks.

Now a head coach, it is unlikely that Kidd will see huge spikes in value. However, this unique circumstance allows him to remain in the spotlight despite his recent retirement. If the Nets can come together and make a deep run into playoffs, Jason Kidd cards will enjoy some of the boost in interest. Many consider Jason Kidd to be a likely Hall of Fame inductee and that will also help his values in the future. Collectors have many Kidd autograph options to pursue and those are some of the best options available.

As a whole, Jason Kidd cards are very reasonably priced. Debuting in the early nineties means that most of his early cards were over-produced and mostly plain. He has 15 rookie cards, which are all non-numbered base rookies, and the majority are found for less than $5. Three cards stand above the rest and are detailed below.

Top Jason Kidd Rookie Cards

1994-95 Flair Jason Kidd RC #202

1994-95 Flair is class personified. Simple gold foil and a split image combine with a nice gloss to form a simple and striking rookie card. After all these years, it still maintains an elegant look.

1994-95 SP Jason Kidd RC #2

While the base set featured a completely different design, 1994-95 SP Basketball was all about the foil for their rookie cards. The use of gold is a little much but the combination with silver foil seems strange. These are very condition sensitive. There is also a die-cut parallel that falls one per pack, and adds a chase element.

1994-95 Finest Jason Kidd RC #286

Easily Jason Kidd's most valuable rookie card, 1994-95 Finest Basketball brings a color scheme and design that was truly eye-opening. The big draw is the refractor parallel.

Jason Kidd Cut Signature Exemplar

Jason Kidd Signature Image

Jason Kidd Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Jason Kidd signature autograph will exhibit several distinguishing characteristics, regardless of the item signed or when it was signed. Look for the following signature features:

  1. Signed on a relatively even horizontal plane, the signature may exhibit a slight up-ward angle, with a slight lean to the right.
  2. The letter "J" is larger than the other letters, very legible and written in cursive with closed loops, top and bottom, with the bottom loop being the larger of the two and a long horizontal line extending to the right, even with the plane of the signature overall.
  3. The letter "K" is easily discernible and is printed.
  4. The letters "d-d" are discernible, while the letter "i" is implied. The "d"'s themselves resemble fish hooks, with neither containing a closed loop. *Other times, Kidd has signed the "d"'s with loops coming off the tops of the letters.
