Shaquille O'Neal rookie cards are great investments.  A Shaq rookie card is a must-have for your collection.  As a professional basketball player, he has played for the Orlando Magic, Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat and the Phoenix Suns.  He led the Orlando Magic to the NBA Finals where they lost to a talented Houston Rockets team.  A young Shaquille O'Neal was no match for Hakeem Olajuwon in his prime and the balanced attack of the rest of the Rockets including Clyde Drexler.  He redeemed himself for that loss, albeit with the Los Angeles Lakers.  The result of him maturing as a player was phenomenal and record-setting.  The Los Angeles Lakers, under the leadership of Phil Jackson, won several NBA titles.  He teamed with Kobe Bryant and an outstanding supporting cast of players to form a dominating team that had a great run in the late 1990's heading in to the 21st century.  He joined the Miami Heat and along with Dwayne Wade also helped them win an NBA title.  He currently is a member of the Phoenix Suns and is attempting to help them get an NBA championship.

Shaq's rookies are great for a collection.  They, surprisingly, have not really risen much in value since they came out.  In 1992, the 1992-93 cards had him as a rookie and the excitement surrounding his turning pro already caused them to be valuable upon their issuance.  He has met and exceeded every expectation placed on him as a basketball player and is a sure first ballot hall of famer.  His best rookie cards include 1992-93 Upper Deck which has a trade card that was redeemed in 92 and a short print version that has a book value of $40 that was available in series two packs.  His other rookies from Hoops, Skybox, Fleer and Classic book anywhere from $4 to $12.  He also has rookie year inserts, some of which are serial numbered and quite valuable.  In my personal basketball card collection, I have several of his first year cards as I consider him to be one of the best cards to have of our generation. Rc's are the first year cards of players and are great items for collectibles.
