Hello! If you’re looking for a list of the best Andrew Wiggins rookie basketball cards, then you’ve come to the right place.
Andrew played one season of college basketball for the Kansas Jayhawks before entering the NBA draft where he was taken number one overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers and subsequently traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves.
He had a successful rookie season and ended up taking home the Rookie of the Year award in 2015.
His career with the Timberwolves was full of ups and downs and he was just never really able to find his stride.
In 2020, Wiggins ended up being traded to the Golden State Warriors which ended up being the best thing to ever happen to his career.
He ended up being a perfect fit for the Warriors' playing style and his defensive prowess and offensive aggressiveness helped lead them to their 4th NBA championship since 2015.
If you're in search of an Andrew Wiggins rookie card to add to your collection, the experts here at Sports Card Sharks have spent countless hours sifting through each and every one of his cards on the market and have compiled a list of the ones we feel are the best of the best.
We certainly hope you enjoy it.

At Sports Card Sharks, we tend to go against the grain. We typically aren’t buying what everyone else is buying when everyone else is buying it, so if you’re moving with the masses this may not be the right list for you. Adios!
Our Founder is an 80's baby that grew up in the 90's collecting sports cards during the junk wax era.
While card collecting when on hiatus for a couple of decades, that passion was re-sparked in 2020 and we haven't looked back since.
We spend countless hours researching each player and constructing these posts to help you save time and energy so that you can focus on the fun part which is collecting!
