COMPLETED! Kobe Bryant Rookie Cards Checklist

Finally, 1 year and 6 months since my quest to acquire all Kobe Byant rookie cards last July 2010, I have now all 16 of his true base cards. I also have his SPx XRC (extended RC) as well as the two cards from Stadium Club which are not really RCs since they are inserts - but the product don't feature one.

Thanks to ty of the nbacardsph forum as his E-X2000 RC included in my January 17 mail day was the final piece to the puzzle. It was a long process but I was not in a hurry as I wanted to relish every card I acquired. 

Here's the checklist of Kobe Bryant's rookie cards with picture and value based on the Beckett Price Guide as of the date of this writing:

1996-97 Bowman's Best #R23 RC $30.00

1996-97 Collector's Choice #267 RC $5.00

1996-97 E-X2000 #30 RC $60.00

1996-97 Finest #74 B RC $40.00

1996-97 Flair Showcase Row 2 #31 RC $20.00

1996-97 Fleer #203 RC RC $8.00

1996-97 Hoops #281 RC $10.00

1996-97 Metal #137 FF RC $12.00

1996-97 SP #134 RC $25.00

1996-97 SkyBox Premium #55 RC $20.00

1996-97 Topps #138 RC $15.00

1996-97 Topps Chrome #138 $300.00 - This one is graded because this is the only way for me to assure that mine is authentic. Rumor has it that there are fake copies that abound for this card. That might be possible since this is Kobe's most valuable RC. I plan to acquire this BCCG 10 copy to a BGS 9.5 when funds will already allow me to.

1996-97 UD3 #19 RC $12.00
1996-97 Ultra #52 RC $15.00 

1996-97 Upper Deck #58 RC $15.00

1996-97 Z-Force #142 RC $10.00

1996-97 Stadium Club Rookies 1 #R12 $10.00 (not a true rookie card)

1996-97 Stadium Club Rookies 2 #R9 $10.00 (not a true rookie card)

1997 SPx #22 $25 (extended rookie card)

All together now.

My next quest would now be to acquire all of Kobe's RCs - in BGS 9.5 graded form. 

I have started it with the 96-97 Topps #138 RC I acquired last April.

I am almost halfway to it as I have now 7 BGS 9.5 RCs. I also want to upgrade my BCCG 10 Topps Chrome #138 RC to a BGS 9.5 when funds will already allow me to.
