Lightbulb who is the most sought out player that is already retired???

Everyone would say Michael Jordan... so after Jordan who would it be.
This means his value to hobby market.
So who would be number 2????

Let the Senate begin...

Either Babe Ruth or Wilt Chamberlain.

maybe not number 2 or even 3, but basketball legends like Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Bill Russell and Jerry West are widely collected.

also Abdul-Jabbar, Pippen and Rodman are very popular.

Yeah, West is FAR too cheap for what he should be IMO

I would say Maravich or Wilt

Thanks for the inputs...
Yeah its a bummer I can't send anything for wilt to sign
So whatever he have signed that is the only ones.
I know that prices are driven by supply and demand but not just plainly talent but by number of collectors who plainly likes the players.
I just don't know why spurs players and grizzlies players are not as high as some of the players that are not even all stars.

Gotta put Barkley in that top tier somewhere if only for the fact that he rarely signs.

Considering sale prices and popularity I think Penny has to be right near the top

I would say that Wilt is one that demands a high value.

I agree with Charles Barkley.

You can't find anything certified autographs of him that are at reasonable price to buy.

I would guess Pistol Pete.

I saw a Sportkings cut auto of his without his picture on it sell for $4,000 on ebay just a while back.
