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!

This post is long overdue especially with the regular NBA season wrapped up.

But the Atlanta Hawks have a bright future with the emergence of Trae Young on the team.

While Luka Doncic ended up being rookie of the year in 2019, Trae Young still has considerable talent some argue on par with Doncic.

Here are our picks for his best rookie cards in the market and links below to bid or buy on eBay.

1. 2018-19 Panini Contenders Rookie Ticket autograph card (plus variation)

The Panini Contenders set is a favorite of many basketball card collectors especially when it comes to collecting rookie autograph cards.

The Rookie Ticket subset is popular with its on-card autographs and different parallel refractors.

Plus there’s a variation card as well for the hardcore collector.

2. 2018-19 Panini Donruss Optic Rated Rookie autograph card

The Rated Rookie subset from Panini Donruss Optic boxes are also popular with rookie card collectors.

This card also has plenty of parallel refractors worth quite a bit for the more rare ones listed.

3. 2018-19 Crown Royale Rookie Silhouettes autograph jersey card

For those looking for more than an autograph card, this one comes with an oversized jersey patch.

It’s also serial numbered for its different parallel refractors with some valued more than a thousand.

BONUS: 2018 Panini Prizm Rookie Card

One of the most popular rookie cards to collect has to be the Panini Prizm (in particular the silver).

Prices are going up fast on these cards especially if they are graded well. He’s a good alternative to invest in if fellow rookie from the same year, Luka Doncic, rookie card prices are now out of reach.
