For basketball card collectors, the name JJ Redick is a familiar one. The sharpshooter set several records during his four years with the Blue Devils, including becoming the all-time leading scorer in school history with 2,769 points. Redick was also a two-time consensus first-team All-American and the 2005-2006 National Player of the Year.
After his legendary college career, Redick was selected 11th by the Orlando Magic in the 2006 NBA Draft. He was not as dynamic as a player in the NBA, but he had his moments.
NBA Rookie Year
Redick immediately impacted as a rookie with his impressive shooting accuracy, averaging 10.9 points per game while shooting 44% from the field and 40% from beyond the arc. Despite playing just 26 minutes per game, Redick made 54 three-pointers in his first season, tying him for 4th most among rookies. He also added 2.2 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game while being a significant contributor on the Orlando Magic’s run to the playoffs that season.
Redick continued to impress by shooting over 40% from beyond the arc every year until 2011-2012, when he posted a career-high 45.1% mark. He has been an invaluable asset to his teams throughout his career and looks to continue doing so as he enters his 13th season in the league.
Some of his more popular cards include the 2004-05 Upper Deck Exquisite rookie card, his 2017-18 Panini National Treasures autograph basketball card, and our favorite, 2016 JJ Redick Panini Studio Downtown SSP #FD17.
