Default Duncan: No love. why?

I know there have been threads about this in the past. Why does the big guy get no love? Too quiet? Too old? small market team? not enough auto's circulating in the market?

Being as old as he is, he is still playing at a high level. Why aren't collectors going crazy over Tim Duncan?

maybe he needs to say or do something crazy to get collectors to pay attention.

He's not flashy and on the highlights every night. Jump hooks, blocks, rebounds, and bank shots don't sell cards unfortunately. He is definitely not overlooked by true basketball fans. Just by the the majority of basketball card collectors.

Duncan's high end rookie cards are selling at ridiculous price

I think its a mixture of social media and his personality.

His cards does get attention though. His autographs and parallel rookie cards consistently sells for a good amount of money.

Duncan's premium cards sell very well - His rookies don't sell for much, but that's the case with most 90's stars: Shaq, Dirk, Garnett, Kidd, etc.

Because he's not marketed well, so there isn't anything on TV or the internet telling collectors to like him. Oh yeah, and he's not an idiot like a lot of the current players in the league.

One of the best players of all time. Yeah, I said it.

When I go play basketball, I don't emulate my game after Duncan. That's why.

Because most collectors from back then are no longer collecting, and the people from today didn't see him playing in his great years...

TIM DUNCAN is the most successful player of his - 05.21.12 - SI Vault

Especially no 20 below

20 The Anti-Marketing of a Superstar

There are no shoes. No line of wicking shorts. No, well, anything. Lon Babby, Duncan's longtime agent and now G.M. of the Suns, says that Duncan "turned down almost all of it" when it came to opportunities. "It just wasn't that important to him," Babby says. "I had to make sure I was doing what he wanted, not what I wanted."

The result is that it can be awfully lonely to be a Duncan acolyte. Ever seen a Duncan jersey outside Texas? Know any non--Spurs fans who'd call him their favorite player?

When this last question is posed on Twitter, a virtual scavenger hunt ensues. Dozens upon dozens try to help. They respond that they once knew this guy who had a friend who really liked Duncan, or that Duncan was their favorite player from 1997 to '99, or that Duncan is, like, their third favorite player and does that count? Then, finally, paydirt. An NBA fan in Canada, one in Cleveland and one in New York. I query them with e-mails, ask why they love Tim. An interesting theme emerges: In Duncan, they see themselves. They talk about how he's "old school," how "he's an introvert like myself" and how "he does his job and goes home."

Which is to say that Duncan is sort of like us. And what kind of hero does that make?

He rarely signed so most of his high end stuff are inserts if he signed with exquisite his stuff would be a lot higher same thing with Dirk.

Its good to have stars like Duncan who don't have to flaunt everything all of the time. He just focuses on basketball and I think it has worked out well for him

I think in 10, 15, 20 years his cards will hold a premium as big time post players are a thing of the past.

Duncan stuff sells just fine.

Your complaint is that crappy Duncan stuff doesn't sell.

After He retires thats when his card would jump.
The greatest Power forward of All Time!
He does the basic plays, the maser of basic fundamentals.
For now iys like he is boring to watch.
After he retires then Most collectors will be pickibg up his cards.
