Ben Simmons was born on 7/20/1996 and was selected with the first pick in the 2016 NBA Draft by the Philadephia 76ers.
Mr. Simmons is straight out of Melbourne, Australia and attended LSU.
He was injured for the 2016 season but right out of the gate in 2017 it was evident that he was going to be a special player in the league as he averaged 15.8 points per game.
Here are the Ben Simmons rookie cards you will want to add to your sports cards investment portfolio.
2016-17 Panini Prizm #1 Ben Simmons Philadelphia 76ers Rookie Card (buy on eBay)
The Simmons Prizm based card is the best card for the value investor.
This card is still fairly cheap and will only go up if Simmons keeps playing the way he is.
If he can manage an NBA Championship Ring (which is very possible with Joel Embiid on his team) his Prizm cards will explode in value.
2016 Prizm Parallels include; Green, Silver, Ruby Wave, Blue Wave #/99, Purple #/75, Orange #/49, Orange Wave #/25, Mojo #/25, Teal Wave #/25, Gold #/10, Black 1/1.
The card is numbered #1 and the back reads “The former LSU standout made the most of his lone season at LSU, averaging nearly 20 points per game ad 5 assist in 33 games. Those totals lifted Simmons to the overall spot in the 2016 NBA Draft and Philadelphia hopes to build around him for years to come“.
2016 National Treasures Ben Simmons RC #53
We love, LOVE this card.
The 2016 Ben Simmons National Treasures rookie card is a must for 76ers fans who have extra money to invest.
The card will cost in the 4 digits for higher grades (PSA 9 or 10, BGS 9.5) but is worth the money as we expect the 76ers to eventually win a Championship and NBA cards are the future of card investing.
Ben Simmons is shown dribbling the rock between his legs in this high-end rookie card and is numbered #53.
2016-17 Panini Select Silver #60 Ben Simmons Rookie Card
Here is another good Simmons rookie card for those with a smaller investment budget.
A high-grade Ben Simmons Silver Select card should still cost under $100.
