Rookie Card Year: 2012-13
Investment Rating: 8.0


Overview

Kawhi Leonard turned a successful playoff run with the San Antonio Spurs into increased recognition and interest from collectors. While the Spurs are normally associated with fundamentally skilled veteran players, don't let Leonard's age fool you. He has already become a cornerstone player and will likely lead them into the future once Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobli and Tony Parker retire. Although collectors had already shown interest in Leonard, he is definitely a young player to watch and Kawhi Leonard cards and memorabilia appear to be a solid investment.

Kawhi Leonard played for the San Diego State Aztecs in college and was taken 15th overall in the 2011 NBA Draft by the Indiana Pacers. Leonard never suited up for the Pacers, as he was immediately traded to the San Antonio Spurs. During his rookie season, Leonard saw regular minutes and was named to the 2011 NBA All-Rookie First team. He showed considerable progress during his Sophomore season, and helped the Spurs reach the NBA Finals. Although they could not defeat the Miami Heat, the future looks bring for Kawhi Leonard and his cards.

As a rookie during the 2011-12 season, the NBA lockout postponed Kawhi Leonard's official rookie cards for one year. However, 2011-12 Upper Deck products offer collectors a college-themed option for Kawhi Leonard cards, including autographs. The most notable option is his 2011-12 Exquisite autograph. There are also several 2011-12 Panini Kawhi Leonard cards that come in the form of redemptions.

The large double rookie class that was a result of the NBA lockout lead to a huge influx of new 2012-13 Panini products. Due to this, there are many rookie card options for the young Spur, across all budgets. As far as signed memorabilia, there is just not much out there for Kawhi Leonard. That will soon change.
