It has been over five years since Andrew Wiggins was named the NBA's Rookie of the Year in 2015, but the nostalgia behind the accolade is far from fading -- at least to one card collector.
Wiggins' one-of-a-kind rookie year trading card recently sold for $4,250 on eBay.
This isn't the first time this season where a current Warriors player's card sold for some major cash. A rare rookie card of Steph Curry sold for a whopping $616,230 in December.
Wiggins' card is a 2014-15 Panini Eminence that also features a patch of his jersey in the upper left corner. It is the only version of the card that exists.
The former Kansas product took home honors after the 2014-15 season thanks to his remarkable rookie campaign with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Although the Timberwolves owned the NBA's worst record at 16-66, the future looked bright with Wiggins at the helm. Just 19 years old at the time, Wiggins posted a 16.9 points-per-game average, along with 4.6 rebounds a game, while locking up 110 out of 130 first-place votes.
However, Minnesota faltered, advancing to the playoffs just once during Wiggins' five-year tenure.
Wiggins was traded from Minnesota to Golden State midway through the 2019-'20 season for D'Angelo Russell. The Warriors also nabbed the Timberwolves' protected 2021 first-round pick and an additional second-round pick.
He played in 12 games for the Warriors last season, averaging 19.4 points-per-game. In nine games this season, Wiggins isn't far off that mark, averaging 17.6 points this season and becoming a staple in the Warriors' offense.
