- Exquisite – Last Month (1) – By far the most popular basketball set has the top spot again. It will be interesting to see what happens to UD Exquisite with Panini now having the exclusive NBA license. There has been no word from Upper Deck.
- Auto – Last Month (2) – Here is a quick eBay search tip you might already be aware of, whenever I am looking for an item, I always, for example, search: [Michael Olowokandi (auto, autograph)] in the search box. That way you are able to catch items with either auto or autograph in the search results.
- Michael Jordan – Last Month (5) – Upper Deck has done a great job at keeping Jordan in the hearts and minds of collectors by mixing in Jordan cards in just about every basketball set. The autographs and jersey cards that pair him up with other players go for big dollars.
- 1/1 – Last Month (3) – Be sure to check out what the highest selling basketball cards sell for on eBay by going to the Sports Card Report Blog. The site does a great job at tracking the sports card market. They have daily posts on what is hot on eBay as well as a daily report on cards that have sold at auction for over $1,000.
- Jordan – Last Month (6) – See #3
- Kobe Auto – Last Month (8) – No golden boy Lebron on the list? Fans know who the best player in the game is and they flock to ebay to get his autograph. Panini just issued some 2009/10 Kobe on-card autographs in some of their recent products.
- Logoman – Last Month (7) – No, not a crazy search term for Jerry West cards. These Logoman patch cards are the big hits in hobby boxes.
- Sp Game Used – Last Month (NR) – It is interesting that a Panini product has yet to crack the monthly hot list as of yet. Sp Game Used, along with Exquisite and Sp Authentic are the three most popular Upper Deck basketball sets.
- Kobe Bryant – Last Month (9) – See #6.
- Jordan Auto – Last Month (NR) -See #3 & #5
DROPPED OUT: Garnett (4), Kobe (10).
