Zion Williamson autographed memorabilia has hit the marketplace. SportsMemorabiia.com and its parent site, Fanatics, are showing off a group of newly signed items from the NBA’s number one draft pick, who continues to rehab an injured knee.
Among them are framed and unframed Williamson signed jerseys (three different), basketballs (three different) and photos.
For your $500-$800, though, you still only get “Zion W.”
The company also has some of Williamson’s earliest basketball cards among its listings.
You can see everything here.
Taken with the first pick in the June draft by the New Orleans Pelicans, the former Duke star suffered a torn meniscus just prior to the start of the season. He’s expected back sometime next month.

The Topps Industry Conference has been scheduled for Feb. 23-25 in Arizona.
The annual get-together features hobby shop owners, distributors, sports league and entertainment reps along with Topps executives. The goal for hobby shops, according to Topps, is “to learn about best practices to expand your industry knowledge and grow your current successes.”
Speakers, Q&A sessions and off-site activities are planned. There are usually Topps gifts handed out as well.
The event takes place at the Wild Horse Pass Hotel and Casino in Chandler, AZ.
Upper Deck’s Certified Diamond Dealer Conference will be January 7-9, at the Walt Disney World Swan Resort in Orlando, FL.
Speakers have been lined up along with plans for networking, exclusive product releases and other activities.
