Rookie Card Year: 2007-08
Investment Rating: 6.0
Joakim Noah is not yet a star on the collecting circuit, but collectors are warming up to the Chicago Bulls' center. His disruptive play on defense and overall high-energy output has Chicago staying in contention despite the injuries to their superstar point guard, Derrick Rose. This has resulted in an upswing for Joakim Noah cards and autographs and plenty of room for growth.
Part of a formidable starting lineup, Joakim Noah played for the University of Florida alongside Corey Brewer and Al Horford. The trio carried Florida to consecutive NCAA titles in 2006 and 2007. All three teammates declared for the 2007 NBA Draft and were all selected in the top ten. Noah was taken ninth overall by the Chicago Bulls.
Joakim Noah got off to a slow start with the Bulls, but his playing time and production took off in his third season. He was named an All-Star in both 2012-13 and 2013-14 and has proven to be a key part of the Bulls' roster, especially with Derrick Rose missing the majority of those seasons with injuries.
Because his rookie year was in 2007-08, Noah is overshadowed by superstar Kevin Durant, who made his debut in the same season. This also means that unopened boxes are pricier. However, with over 30 rookie cards, collectors have plenty of card choices. Joakim Noah also has two early cards that were released in 2006-07 products.

Joakim Noah Cut Signature Exemplar
Joakim Noah Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Joakim Noah signature autograph will exhibit several distinguishing characteristics, regardless of the item signed or when it was signed. Much of his signed items pertain to his alma mater, the University of Florida. Look for the following signature features:
- The signature is fairly simple and consists of his first initial and his last name.
- The "J" is elongated and features a large oval loop, more like a 2.
- Earlier in his career, Noah included a smiley face inside the loop, but he appears to have mostly abandoned that practice in recent years.
- The last name is legible and printed. The "h" is the letter that lacks consistency, and sometimes resembles a larger "c".
