After the 2019 NBA playoffs, Kawhi Leonard will have cemented himself as a bonafide superstar especially when it comes to the post-season.
The current Toronto Raptors small forward already has an impressive resume starting with his days on the San Antonio Spurs.
It’s no coincidence the value of his rookie cards have been climbing with a sharp increase coming during these playoffs.
Here are the top 3 rookie cards below in our opinion and links to bid or buy them currently on eBay.
1. 2012-13 Panini National Treasures Rookie Autograph Patch Card #114
This is one of the most (if not the most) valuable rookie card of Leonard’s currently available in the market.
Numbered to just 199, it consists of a sick patch and on-card autograph. And there are parallel versions too including a 1/1 NBA Logoman patch.
One that’s graded gem mint will set you back tens of thousands of dollars.
2. 2012-13 Panini Prizm Rookie Card
The Panini Prizm set is a popular one for basketball collectors.
And it started with the 2012-13 season when the Prizm set was launched, which happened to include Leonard’s rookie card.
Look for parallel cards that are more rare and of more value in this set.
3. 2012-13 Immaculate Collection Rookie Autograph Patch #112
Another beauty rookie patch autograph card of Leonard’s can be found in the Immaculate Collection set.
It’s numbered to just 99 with a red parallel, if you’re lucky to find (or afford) one, that’s numbered to 25.
