Arenas Makes Comeback
Gilbert Arenas finally made his return, joining his fellow Wizards against the Bucks on Wednesday. Coming off the bench (actually not coming out of the locker room until 5:30 of the first quarter), he scored 17 points in 20 minutes of play, and shot 5-for-9 from the field, including 2-for-3 from 3PT, and 5-for-7 free throws. Arenas' top rookie cards have been pretty scarce since his injury back in mid-November, for obvious reasons. His 01-02 SP Authentic Auto RC #'d 1525 was a hobby standout last season, reaching into the $100's range. This season, it peaked out at $77 TAC back in November (probably below the $100-mark because of his embarassing comments made at the beginning of the season), and dropped down to around $60 in March. I would expect a little increase in value now that he's back, but not the big jumps that he could've had if he had returned earlier in the year, and helped the Wiz earn their current #5 seed in the Eastern Conference playoff race.
