The Card: 2006-07 Exquisite Collection Rajon Rondo RC Auto Patch #60 /225

Over the past few years, Rajon Rondo has been one of the most frustrating players to watch (at least from those not name Derrick Rose). There have been flashes of elite-level brilliance. But most of the time it has been a combination of injuries and questions of commitment.

The result? He’s become one of the NBA’s higher-profile journeymen. Rondo is now with his fifth team since the start of the 2014-15 season.

Last night, it was elite Rondo in New Orleans when the point guard set a franchise record with 25 assists. It was also a career high for Rondo. And this came in just 30 minutes of play. That, plus a big night from Anthony Davis, helped the Pelican easily fend off the Brooklyn Nets in a 128-113 victory.

Rondo has a lot of Rookie Cards. They’ve fallen significantly in recent years to the point where even many of his autographs are pretty affordable. The 2006-07 Exquisite Collection Rajon Rondo still leads them all. And while it’s cheaper than a lot of other Exquisite Rookies Cards from multi-time All-Stars like Rondo, it’s not exactly cheap. But that’s Exquisite for you.

One game isn’t going to change many fortunes (or make any), but it is nice to see the clock get turned back a few years.
