Though he fell to the #15 overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft, many basketball pundits believed that Greece's Giannis Antetokounmpo would not only be the steal of the night but could eventually unseat the iconic LeBron James as the top overall player in the NBA. Standing just short of 7 feet tall, he possesses the ball-handling ability of a point guard and the inside game of a dominant center, earning the nickname "Greek Freak" even before he put on a Milwaukee Bucks uniform, a tribute to his uncanny ability. The pundits had it correct as Antetokounmpo has more points, rebounds, and assists than all of the fifteen players selected before him in the draft, and many consider him to be the best basketball player in the world today. Starting slowly while acclimating to NBA and American life, Antetokounmpo has shown great improvement each season, and at 24 years old, led the Milwaukee Bucks to the Eastern Conference Finals while averaging 27.7 points, 12.5 rebounds and just under 6 assists per game. While basketball card companies were scrambling to distribute his rookie card in every way, shape and form, with regular issues, inserts, limited number autographed cards and the like, the featured specimen stands as the true pinnacle of greatness. Because it's the only one of its kind, numbered 1/1 and featuring the newest face of NBA dominance, Giannis Antetokounmpo. Part of the elite 2013 Upper Deck Exquisite Collection, this rookie Auto-Violet card is graded PSA 8, but that's really of no consequence since, as the only one of its kind, is assured to be the best graded by PSA. Years down the road, when the Greek Freak likely takes his place as the greatest European player and one of the best the NBA has ever seen, you'll be holding onto a museum quality piece that stands head and shoulders above the other coveted specialty cards, which carry limited edition numbers of 75, or 50, or even 10. Yes, this is 1/1 and comes from a company with a pedigree for producing some of the greatest sports cards known. A true basketball card icon in the making!
