The value of New York Knicks players in terms of trading cards.
If you are a card collector or interested in how the market for basketball cards works in relation to the success of New York Knicks players on the court, this post is for you.
Nostalgia brought back the basketball card collectors of old and the market for basketball trading cards has rejuvenated. Since the beginning of the year, the hobby has gained a tremendous following and many people have jumped on the train for the investment opportunity.
The up-and-coming stars have exponentially increased their trading card value because of their potential to become all-time players. Luka Doncic is probably the one of the most highly sought-after cards due to almost averaging a triple double in just his second year in the league. Other players like Trae Young, Zion Williamson, and Ja Morant are doing the same.
The Knicks players on the other hand have been largely ignored due to their lack of success and no “break-out” players besides Kristaps Porzingis in the last couple of years.
I would have to say that this hobby is quite an emotional one. For example, even if Julius Randle has the highest win share value on the team, there is a chance that his cards wouldn’t be worth the most. Card collectors love the flamboyant flash as well as young players with potential. Julius Randle’s dribble into the paint and pass the ball out of bounds will most likely hurt the fan’s desire to own a Julius Randle Panini Prizm Silver RC card.
Here is a list of potential players on the Knicks that might be on the verge of having a great season, thus becoming a great card to own.
