Who knew that this kid from Harvard and cut from 2 different NBA teams would have some of the hottest cards of the season?
Who knew that this kid would have a cult following and would be putting up All-Star level points and assists totals when he was given the chance to compete?
Who knew Jeremy Lin would be the talk of the NBA when they are announcing All-Star reserves, and not LeBron, Kobe, or any other perennial superstar?
If you haven’t taken notice of Jeremy Lin, it’s time to take notice. His 2010-11 Panini Contenders rookie autograph went from $7 to $70 in a flash. His 2010-11 Panini National Treasures rookie patch autograph just sold for $1k.
If the kid can keep this up, he’s a star in the making. It may or may not be too early to tell, but watching a humble, down to earth kid do well in an ego-centric, individual accomplishment driven league is a breath of fresh air.
Who knew this would happen?
