Shai Gilgeous-Alexander rookie cards

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and his top 3 rookie cards

  • 2 min read

After an impressive rookie season with the Los Angeles Clippers, some are wondering if he can take the next step to become the next superstar playing for his new team – the Oklahoma Thunder.

He might not reach the likes of former Thunder superstars (Kevin Durant, James Harden) but it might not be a bad idea to start tracking his career with some of his rookie cards relatively affordable today (other than some high-end rookie patch autographs).

Here are three of his rookie cards we like best currently listed for sale below.

1. 2018-19 National Treasures Rookie Patch Autograph Card

Here’s one of the high-end cards that already cost quite a bit.

But it’s a great looking card with a nice size relic patch along with a cool autograph.

There are some parallel versions with low print runs making the card much more valuable.


2. 2018-19 Panini Prizm Rookie Autograph Card

Panini Prizm is a popular brand for basketball collectors.

Even some non-autograph prizm parallels can cost quite a bit for some top rookies.

But for Gilgeous-Alexander, his autograph prizm cards can still be found for decent value.


3. 2018-19 Panini Donruss Optic Autograph Card

Here’s a clean looking on-card autograph card from the popular Rated Rookie subset in Panini Donruss Optic packs.

With a number of parallels, there’s something for collectors that don’t have a big budget to high-end collectors chasing the more rare parallels.
