Check out our Daily Auctions page to see some of the best sports card auctions ending daily! And listen to our podcast Cards To The Moon!

Living up to his potential in his first full season, Ben Simmons of the Philadelphia Sixers came away with the Rookie of the Year award in 2018.

But fast forward four years, and we know how his Philly stint ended up.

Now with the Brooklyn Nets playing alongside Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, will his card value go up or stay the same?

Here’s our pick for his best rookie cards and the links to bid/buy them off eBay.

1. 2016 Panini Prizm Rookie Card

The go-to rookie card for basketball card collectors, the Panini Prizm comes in several parallels with the silver arguably the most popular.

Look for these cards to go quickly if it’s at a good price.


2. 2016-17 Panini Select Rookie Card

A close second in popularity for his rookie cards is the Panini Select set.

Along with the various parallels, Select also offers more than one rookie card in each of the Select tiers ranging from Concourse (the higher printed subset) to Courtside (the short printed subset…and therefore worth much more).


3. 2016-17 Donruss Optic Rookie Card

For those looking for something that costs less than Panini Prizm, another popular set is Donruss Optic.

Again, it comes in several parallels with the more rare ones costing in the thousands (but usually less than the Prizm and Select parallels of the same color).
