Overview

1997-98 Metal Universe Precious Metal Gems Green Patrick EwingAs a prominent NBA team in one of the biggest sports cities in the world, the New York Knicks maintain a significant following of fans and collectors. Despite a lengthy gap in titles, the Knicks rich history offers collectors plenty of Hall of Fame options.

The New York Knicks made their NBA debut in 1946 and were one of the top teams in the league in the 1950s, thanks to names like Dick McGuire, Harry Gallatin and Richie Guerin. Although they saw a regression in the 1960s, Red Holzman led the team back to the top near the end of the decade.

This all culminated with the Knicks' only NBA titles in 1970 and 1973. Headlined by a Hall of Fame roster, the 1973 team boasted a lineup that consisted of Bill Bradley, Dave DeBusschere, Walt Frazier, Jerry Lucas, Earl Monroe and Willis Reed.

Although the team has not won another title since 1973, the franchise has regularly been in the playoff mix. Bernard King carried the Knicks through the early part of the 1980s, but arguably the biggest player in the history of the New York Knicks was drafted first overall in the 1985 NBA Draft. Patrick Ewing gave the Knicks a bonafide superstar and he rewarded them with 13-straight playoff appearances and two trips to the NBA Finals.

Unable to claim the ultimate prize, the team was largely disbanded and has struggled to consistently field a winning team, even with their newest superstar, Carmelo Anthony. Now with Phil Jackson on board, the Knicks hope they can capture some of the success that he displayed with the Bulls and Lakers.

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