Shaq O'Neal rookie cards

Shaquille O’Neal and his most valuable rookie cards

In the early 1990s, Shaquille O’Neal dominated the game as a rookie and his rookie cards were highly sought after.

Many of his rookie cards are still quite affordable with a good number of them mass produced.

But there are a few of the former LA Lakers / Orlando Magic basketball star that are rare and therefore have great value on the market.

Here’s a few currently listed for sale on eBay with links to the listings.

1. 1992 Classic Draft Pick Autograph Rookie Card

The autographs come in different ink and these cards come with different image variations.

But they’re all numbered (handwritten) making some of these subsets very limited.

And the more highly graded cards are currently listed for five-figures.

2. 1992-93 Stadium Club Beam Team Rookie Card

Shaquille O’Neal was included in one of the now iconic subsets released in Stadium Club, the “Beam Team.”

Depending on how the basketball card is graded, the prices can range from a couple hundred dollars to $1,500 currently.

There’s a “Members Only” card as well found in complete sets available for sale back then although it is nearly identical to the ones that you can pull out of the pack.

3. 1992-93 Topps Rookie Card

Here’s a much more affordable card to collect with Topps coming back into the basketball card game just as Shaquille introduced himself to the NBA.

There is a gold parallel version but the ones that are worth a bit more are the collectors who got the regular card autographed (and graded for authenticity.)

    I have a Shaquille O’neal 1992 Classic Draft Picks card. Bought on QVC in 1992, Limited Edition of 500. The card is #73/500. Am thinking about selling it. What is the approximate worth? It is pristine, just as I received it, in thick plastic holder originally.. with blue box.

  2. Value is around $100. Truth is that it is not worth very much at all. Card values plummeted.
    I will give you $110 though if you want.

  3. Michael Eden

    What is the Shaq basketball promo card 1 of 5 from the classic 92 football draft pick set. 1 of only 10000

  4. Jason Parrish

    I have a shaquille o’neal 1992 draft pick card. Jersey #33, and card number on back #1. What is it worth

  5. Ryan Arellano

    Hi Rob, I’ll give you $250 for it. About what raw comps are going for.

  6. Jose Rivera

    I have 3 boxes of 1992 daft pick limited edition basketball Shaq draft cards

  7. Josh Combs

    I have a 92-93 fleer ultra slam dunk subset #298 in mint condition. Anyone know its worth?

  8. Micheal

    I’ve got a collection any collector would kill to have shaquille cards akeem olajuwon cards and many more

  9. Does anyone else think the Kentucky Big Blue 1990 Shaquille O’Neal should be on the list? It’s his first card and extremely rare- especially in high grades.
