Ja Morant was selected 2nd overall in the 2019 NBA draft by the Memphis Grizzlies and as such, Ja Morant rookie cards have been in high demand since the start.

In his rookie season, he quickly established himself as one of the best young players in the league, averaging 17.8 points, 7.3 assists, and 3.9 rebounds per game.

The Memphis Grizzlies point guard has gotten off to a good start with number 1 overall draft pick Zion Williamson starting the 2019 season on the sidelines.

Plus it won’t cost as much as Zion cards (not right now at least).

For those looking to invest in Morant rookie / college cards, here’s our choice for his 3 best (and links provided to where you can buy / bid on eBay). And here are other Ja Morant basketball cards worth taking a look in this post.

The Panini Prizm rookie card is usually the go-to for a middle of the road card for collectors and investors alike.

There’s plenty of them with plenty of parallels and the more popular parallels (ie. silver) are fairly liquid.

Plus the Morant pose on this card is pretty cool.

2. 2019-20 National Treasures Autograph Patch Ja Morant Rookie Card

Another high-end basketball card set that offers an on-card autograph with a relic patch is from National Treasures.

It’s another great addition, along with rookie cards from the aforementioned Immaculate Collegiate, to any Morant fan or collector with low serial numbers on each card.

3. 2019-20 Panini Contenders Rookie Ticket Autograph Card

Here’s the Ja Morant Rookie Ticket autograph card from the Panini Contenders set.

He’s in his NBA Memphis Grizzlies uniform here with a couple of image variations available.

BONUS: 2019-20 Panini Prizm Ja Morant Rookie Card

We can’t forget the Panini Prizm set especially with collectors still valuing the Silver Prizm greatly.

So here are several listed on sale along with other non-autograph parallels.


Morant’s electrifying style of play with one highlight reel play after another, quickly made him a fan favorite. He was named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team at the end of the season.

In his second season, Morant has taken his game to even greater heights becoming one of the best young point guards in the league. Morant has led the Grizzlies to a winning record and a playoff berth, earning him the respect of many fans.

Unsurprisingly, some of Morant’s rookie cards have become incredibly valuable since he was drafted in 2019.
