Just over 1 month ago (12.15), the announcement came that Giannis Antetokounmpo signed a ‘supermax’ 5-year contract extension with the Milwaukee Bucks, and I figured since his rookie cards have seen some crazy swings this year, why not revisit them one more time to see how collectors are responding to the news.

A look back at the rookie card value for each two-player team featured in the original 1993 NBA Jam.
Earlier this month I assembled all PSA 10 card values from the iconic 1986 Fleer set and highlighted the 10 cards that appreciated the most this year (you can find that post here).
