Rookie Card Year: 1995-96
Investment Rating: 7.0


Overview

Drafted fourth overall in the 1995 NBA Draft, directly out of high school, Kevin Garnett's legacy will be one of consistency and winning. It's hard to believe that the highly touted kid (that's exactly what he was when he first entered the league) evolve into one of the game's all-time greats. That being said, there is still plenty of opportunity for collectors to snag some excellent Kevin Garnett cards at reasonable prices given that he debuted at the tail end of a different era in the hobby.

Shop for Kevin Garnett rookie cards on eBay.

Kevin Garnett rookie cards were released in 1995-96 products. This was just before serial numbers and autographs became more prevalent. As a result, most of the first Kevin Garnett cards remain extremely affordable. And while none are going to go into the stratosphere as far as prices go, even modest dollar gains could mean solid returns for collectors.

By far, the 1995-96 Topps Finest Kevin Garnett rookie card paces the pack. From there, the drop is steep with most of his rookies available for less than $10. In total, there are 15 different Kevin Garnett rookie cards, none of which are overly difficult to find. For those not worrying about the rookie card tag, some of the more popular first-year Kevin Garnett cards include the Finest Refractor and the Topps Draft Redemption. His arrival in the league came during a transition time in the hobby. As a result, Garnett has no autograph or autograph memorabilia rookie cards.

Despite his longevity in the league, there is very little Kevin Garnett autographed memorabilia on the open market. He had a long-standing deal with Upper Deck Authenticated. This means there's stuff out there but most of it commands a premium. Because of Garnett's deal with Upper Deck, they should be especially cautious if items are not accompanied by UDA certificates. The easiest way to get Kevin Garnett autographs is likely via pack-inserted basketball cards.

Kevin Garnett Autograph

Kevin Garnett Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Kevin Garnett 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.
  2. The letters have a slight lean to the left.
  3. The letter "K" is legible and includes a narrow crossing at the near top and a large rounded portion on the bottom.
  4. This flows into what looks like a letter "a."
  5. The pen lifts making a small dash.
  6. The pen lifts again making a "G" that looks more like a number "8" that is open at the top left.
