Overview- RC Checklist

Kyrie Irving is quickly helping Cleveland Cavaliers fans get rid of the sting they felt when LeBron James signed with the Miami Heat. The first overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, Irving arrived with plenty of fanfare. For collectors, though, there weren't any Kyrie Irving cards to collect for some time. Because of the shortened 2011-12 season, rookie cards were held back.

After signing an exclusive deal with Panini, the point guard figures prominently in their products. With the deal, Kyrie Irving cards can only appear in Panini's products. The deal also extends to autographed memorabilia, which is handled by the company's Panini Authentic line. Because of this, there are relatively few Irving autographs available on the secondary market.

Irving looks to be one of the NBA's top players for years to come. He's a high-scoring guard put in change of bringing the Cavaliers back to respectability. Having been a part of Duke's high-profile basketball program further adds to Irving's status in the hobby.

Ultimately, Kyrie Irving cards have a long road ahead of them. While he has the makings of a perennial All-Star, time will be the ultimate test. For those looking to collect Kyrie Irving rookie cards, they are available at all price points, including lots of high-end autographs. Collectors with a tighter budget may want to track down his 2012-13 Panini Prizm card. Not numbered and without a signature, it is affordable but from one of the year's breakthrough sets.
