Top 100 Cards of My Collection #30 96-97 Topps Chrome Kobe Bryant RC

Kobe Chrome. Back in Kobe's first couple of seasons, those two words were universally known. It's the card that put Topps Chrome on the map. It helped turn the 96-97 set from a one note retail only set to a modern day 86-87 Fleer with Kobe leading the way of a star studded rookie class. This card was on FIRE during Kobe's peak in his first couple years, and the entire Topps Chrome product was as well. It's still a highly desirable card, it's not only Kobe's best rookie card, it's one of the best rookie cards to own in all sports. To think, a parallel of the 96-97 base Topps set would end up being Kobe's  crown jewel. This is definitely a great card to start up the top 30 cards of my collection.
