The NBA right now is loaded with young, skilled point guards scattered across the league. Off the top of my head I can think of Deron, CP3, Rondo, Wall, Westbrook, Curry, Jennings and it feels like I am missing a few. Included in that group is Chicago Bulls PG Derrick Rose who gets as much hobby love as any of those players I mentioned. When this 1997/98 Precious Metal Gems Michael Jordan insert card ends tonight, a 2008/09 Topps Chrome Superfractor Derrick Rose Rookie Card will be the most watched Basketball card on eBay.
I wouldn't consider myself a full-fledged member of the Derrick Rose fan club. I like the guy. Comes across well in interviews, he takes the ball to the rim which is the part of his game I like the most. Rose's shooting has always been a little bit of a question mark and because of that I am always a little bit surprised at how high some of his 08/09 Rookie Cards sell for. This Superfractor card from Topps Chrome is a perfect example. No autograph, no game used, just the luster and lore of the Superfractor name and this card is already at four figures. Even the seller of the card is a bit surprised: "Wow! I have had a lot of interest in this card. I pulled this card from a hobby box myself about two years ago. It went straight into a screw down holder right out of the pack." I say sell Rose now. Are the Bulls beating the Celtics in the playoffs? Let alone the Heat and/or the Magic.
