Klay Thompson has done nothing but score buckets since he joined the NBA in 2011. With the Golden State Warriors on the rise and teammate Steph Curry one of the top stars in the NBA, Thompson gives the Warriors arguably the best backcourt in the league. Already popular with collectors, Klay Thompson rookie cards are beginning to push even higher.
As a result of the lockout during the 2011-12 season, Klay Thompson's official rookie cards were not released until 2012-13 products. However, several 2011-12 Klay Thompson cards still sell for good values. Produced by Upper Deck, these are collegiate cards that are very respected among collectors, even if they're not NBA rookie cards. The 2011-12 Upper Deck Exquisite Collection Klay Thompson autograph is particularly popular among collectors.
Although Damian Lillard, Kyrie Irving and Anthony Davis continue to be the main draws among the 2012-13 NBA products, Klay Thompson is closing the gap and this is helped by the Warriors surge to the top of the Western Conference. Collectors have nearly 30 different Klay Thompson rookie card options, including several autographs. National Treasures is his top overall signed rookie card, followed by Immaculate Collection. Thompson's Gold Standard autographed rookie is one of the best values for collectors.
