Klay Thompson Cards and Memorabilia Guide

Rookie Card Year: 2012-13
Investment Rating: 7.5


Overview

Klay Thompson has done nothing but score baskets since he joined the NBA in 2011. But as a member of the low-profile Golden State Warriors, Thompson does not receive a ton of media exposure. Also, his teammate happens to be Steph Curry, who dominates most of the recognition for the team. However, several big performances during the 2013 NBA Playoffs have put him on the map and Klay Thompson cards are starting to move.

Klay Thompson was drafted 11th overall by the Warriors as a junior out of Washington State University. The former Cougar started his rookie season slowly, but after fellow shooting guard, Monta Ellis, was traded, Thompson received more consistent minutes and started to increase his production. He finished the second half of the 2011-12 season on a tear and was named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team. Thompson also finished a respectable sixth in Rookie of the Year voting. During the 2012-13 season, he combined with Curry to score the most 3-pointers by any duo in NBA history.

As a result of the lockout during the 2011-12 season, Klay Thompson's official rookie cards were not released until the 2012-13 season. However, several 2011-12 Klay Thompson cards still sell for good values. Produced by Upper Deck, these are collegiate cards that are very respected among collectors, even if they're not NBA rookie cards. The 2011-12 Upper Deck Exquisite Collection Klay Thompson autograph is particularly popular among collectors.

Most of the Klay Thompson rookie cards remain relatively inexpensive as Damian Lillard, Kyrie Irving and Anthony Davis continue to be the main draws among the 2012-13 products. However, if he keeps progressing and can separate himself from the shadow of Steph Curry, Thompson can push closer to that top group.

Collectors looking for signed memorabilia from Klay Thompson have very few options for now. The best alternative is one of the many certified autographs that are available for Thompson.
