Team Collectibility Rating: 9.5


Overview

1997 98 Metal Universe Precious Metal Gems Kobe Bryant 81 Emerald Green 211x300 ImageThe Los Angeles Lakers are one of the premier NBA teams. Part basketball dynasty and part pop culture spectacle, the Lakers made winning basketball an A-list event. Only the Boston Celtics can match their NBA legacy and very few others come close to the level of global popularity that the team enjoys. Because of this, the Los Angeles Lakers are one of the most collected teams in the hobby.

The team actually started as the Minneapolis Lakers in 1947, but made the move to Los Angeles in 1960. Minus the 1990s, the team has been very competitive since their inception, and have totaled 16 NBA titles. This is second only to Boston. The team also boasts some of the biggest names in NBA history. Among the many elite players to wear the purple and gold, Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant stand out for collectors.

More recently, the Lakers have seen a downward slide and have been overshadowed by their Staples Center neighbors, the Clippers. Although he remains a force in NBA and in the hobby, Kobe Bryant is on his way out and the team will need to rebuild soon and collectors hope that starts with their 2014 first round pick, Julius Randle. The Lakers are regularly a preferred destination for top free agents, and fans and collectors will be anxious for the next superstar to join the ranks.

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

TTM Autographs

Another option for collectors looking to get autographs is TTM or "Through the mail." A complete guide to the process can be seen here: How to Get (Almost) Free Autographs Through the Mail.

Although it is not a lock, Lakers' fans looking to take advantage of this can try their luck with current players and coaches using the following address:
