Boston Celtics Collecting and Fan Guide

Boston Celtics

Franchise Founded: 1946
Championships: 17
Team Collectibility Rating: 9.5


Overview
Similar to the Los Angeles Lakers, the Boston Celtics are among the most storied NBA franchises when it comes to the team's overall collecting interest and postseason results. Boston fans are known for their intense fandom and when you combine that with the most successful team in NBA history, it is easy to see why Boston is one of the top teams for collectors.

While much of their NBA dominance came during the 1960s to 1980s, the team also enjoyed an impressive recent period with Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen. Without question, Bill Russell and Larry Bird are the top two former players for collectors of the Boston Celtics and helped anchor many of their 17 championship runs. However, many other prominent Hall of Fame players also factor heavily into the Celtics' overall success.

Now in a rebuilding mode, collectors are left with limited current options, but it is hard to think that the Celtics will remain down for long. Their one remaining star is Rajon Rondo, but he has battled injury problems and has been part of many rumored trades. Regardless, the deep checklist of former greats means that Boston will remain a basketball collecting hub for many years to come.

Collectors have plenty of options when it comes to merchandise and collectibles for the Boston Celtics. Using the tabs above, check out the top Celtics' players to collect, top merchandise and jersey options, autograph guide, game tickets and the most watched Boston Celtics cards and memorabilia on eBay.

  1. Dear Trey

    Hello … I’m 64 years old and have collected
    basketball autographs since 1959. Would love
    hearing from you. You have my e-mail,
    drop me a line – please get in touch. I am
    handicapped and my hobby means alot to
    me since I am very limited in what I can do. I
    have collected autographs of all areas since
    1959 – I have some great stories.

    Let me hear from you,
    Roger Christensen

  2. Hey Roger :)
    I am 59 years old and am a disabled Viet Nam Veteran myself, and that’s what keeps me going as well, my sports card collecting/collection. I have over 50,000 cards and still growing! Nice to see you doing the same, keeps you going and your mind alert :) Just wanted to reach out and say HI to a fellow collector like me!
