Overview

Chris Paul has long been considered one of the elite point guards in the NBA and commands plenty of hobby attention. The one thing that appeared to be holding him back was a lack of a talented players around him while with the Hornets. Thanks to a trade to the Los Angeles Clippers, Paul finally had has large-market exposure. Year later came the move to the Houston Rockets and another shot at a title. As a result, Chris Paul rookie cards and signed memorabilia could be in line for a big jump in the near future.
