Ever since Damian Lillard was unanimously selected as the Rookie of the Year in 2012, the Portland Trailblazers star rookie card has increased in value.

As a perennial top 10 scorer, Lillard’s career to date has continually been trending upward.

While playing for the Trailblazers might not get as much exposure as those playing in big market cities, Lillard’s rookie card still seems to be a good investment as he continues to produce elite level stats.

Here are our picks for his 3 best rookie cards and links to where you can find them online.

1. 2012-13 National Treasures Rookie Patch Autograph card #201

Lillard has a couple of image variations of the card and depending on the type of patch, the card can fetch tens of thousands of dollars (ie. 1/1 Logoman).
