Steve Nash Cards, Rookie Cards and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Steve Nash

Date of Birth: 2/7/1974
Rookie Card Year: 1996-97
Investment Rating: 7.0


Overview

Although his career is now over, Steve Nash cards and memorabilia are still worth your attention. Retiring as one of basketball's greatest point guards, values should see a bump as many collectors reflect on the career of the former MVP.

Steve Nash was part of a strong 1996 NBA Draft 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.

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 Nash has achieved many individual accolades, including eight All-Star selections and two MVP awards, an NBA title eluded the point guard.

Until injuries took over in the twilight of his career, Nash actually increased his career points per game and assists per game average as he pushed through his thirties. Because Nash put up Hall of Fame numbers over an extended period, he should be a lock for enshrinement.

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, Bowman's Best and Bowman Chrome. The top rookies for Nash can be seen below.

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.
