Steve Nash Cards, Rookie Cards and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Steve Nash

Date of Birth: 2/7/1974
Rookie Card Year: 1996-97
Investment Rating: 7.5


Overview

Although he is in the twilight of his career, Steve Nash cards and memorabilia are still worth your attention. They might not see any gains in value any time soon, but when Nash retires, he will do so as one of basketball's greatest point guards. Until injuries took over a couple of years ago, the two-time MVP and seven-time All-Star actually increased his career points per game and assists per game average as he pushed through his thirties. Nash has already put up Hall of Fame numbers and should be a lock for enshrinement.

The Canadian star was drafted by the Phoenix Suns in 1996 and was traded to the Dallas Mavericks in 1998. He spent several seasons in Texas before re-joining the Suns in 2004 as a free agent. While he has achieved many individual accolades, an NBA Championship continues to elude the point guard. Nash will never win one with the Suns but could be the missing ingredient for several teams who need one last player to make a legitimate run. There is no clear timetable on his retirement but it cannot be far off.

Steve Nash was part of a strong 1996 Draft class that featured other superstar players, like Kobe Bryant, Ray Allen and Allen Iverson. While clearly not the top option from that class among collectors, Nash has built a strong following.

All 14 of Nash's true rookie cards are base versions that are not numbered, autographed or contain a piece of his jersey. Because of this, almost all of them can be had for very little. The most valuable 1996-97 Steve Nash card options are usually limited edition parallels for Topps Chrome, Finest, Ultra and Bowman Chrome.

Top Steve Nash Rookie Cards

1996-97 Topps Chrome Steve Nash RC #182

The 1996-97 Topps Chrome Steve Nash card is the top option for collectors. It has a plain action shot with a limited design and a chromium finish. Because the Kobe Bryant rookie gets much of the interest, the Steve Nash card is probably a little undervalued. Centering in this set is spotty, so graded versions can command a premium.

1996-97 Finest Steve Nash RC #75

Easily the boldest design of the group, 1996-97 Finest relies heavily on a look that Nash appear as though he is breaking through a metal barrier. This Steve Nash card represents another relative bargain for collectors.

1996-97 SP Steve Nash RC #142

1996-97 SP took their design a different direction than many of the other products from the same year. The first-year Steve Nash card features only a non-action profile shot of Nash and a thick blue border on the left.
