Scottie Pippen Basketball Cards and Autograph Memorabilia Guide

Scottie Pippen

Date of Birth: 9/25/1965
Rookie Card Year: 1988-89
Investment Rating: 8.0


Overview

Scottie Pippen cards and memorabilia may not be as valuable as his teammate Michael Jordan but he was a key piece to the Chicago Bulls dynasty that dominated the NBA in the 1990s. Pippen was the ying to Jordan's yang. The dynamic duo created one of the best one-touch punches in the history of basketball, leading the Chicago Bulls to six NBA Championships.

Scottie Pippen's sole rookie card is in 1988-89 Fleer Basketball. It's ironic that one of the NBA's Top 50 Players has a rookie card that is an uncorrected error. Pippen's name is misspelled on the card back. Produced at the height of the Junk Wax Era, high-grade samples can still command significant cash on the secondary market.

Selected as the fifth overall pick in the 1987 NBA Draft out of Central Arkansas, Pippen would go on to become a seven-time All-Star and an amazing defensive player. He led the league in steals in 1995 and was named to the All-Defensive Team ten times.

Key Scottie Pippen Cards

1988-89 Fleer Scottie Pippen RC #20

1988-89 Scottie Pippen

The 1988-89 Fleer Scottie Pippen rookie card can be found for under $20 ungraded. Once graded, PSA copies in the 9 to 10 range can command several hundred dollars. As mentioned previously, Pippen's name is misspelled on the card's reverse as "Pippin." The nicely designed card incorporates the team color scheme well and shows Pippen making an easy lay-up.

1992-93 Fleer Ultra Career Highlights Autographs Scottie Pippen

The first Scottie Pippen autographs come from the 1992-93 Fleer Ultra Set as part of a ten-card Career Highlights insert set. Each of the ten cards has an autographed version that has an announced print run of 2,000 each. Those print runs may be high by today's standards, but the cards are tough to find today.

1997 Collector's Edge Game-Used Ball Scottie Pippen #5

1997 Collectors Edge Game Used Ball Scottie Pippen

This is Scottie Pippen's first memorabilia card, albeit not a piece of jersey. Instead the card features a dime-sized piece of basketball used in an official NBA game in which the Bulls played. A must for the completist and a nice inexpensive piece of Bulls history.

1997-98 Topps Finest Refractor Scottie Pippen #125

1997-98 Topps Finest Refractor Scottie Pippen

Shiny, limited edition inserts like this 1997-98 Topps Finest Refractor have always seen strong demand. They're seemingly more so in recent years. Despite not having a signature or game-used material embedded in the card, they still can sell for four figures.

1997-98 Metal Universe Championship Precious Metal Gems Scottie Pippen #/50

1997-98 Metal Universe Precious Metals Scottie Pippen

This is another example of a rare 1990s insert that can command several thousand dollars. The popularity of the PMG cards caused Upper Deck to reintroduce them again in 2011-12 Fleer Retro Basketball. This parallels has a print run of just 50 copies.

1999-00 Upper Deck Scottie Pippen Jersey

1999-00 Upper Deck Game Jersey Scottie Pippen

Scottie Pippen's first official jersey card actually isn't from a Chicago Bulls uniform. Entering the tail-end of his career, it features a swatch of game-used Houston Rockets jersey. They can be very hard to find on the secondary market.
