Visit our Daily Auctions page to see the latest sports card deals on auction ending daily! And listen to our podcast Cards To The Moon!

In the early 1990s, Shaquille O’Neal dominated the game as a rookie and Shaquille O’Neal 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 Shaquille O’Neal 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 Shaquille O’Neal Rookie Card

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

This card was part of a now iconic subset released in Stadium Club and is considered to be one of the best basketball card sets of all time.

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 Shaquille O’Neal 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.)
