This past weekend and coincidentally on the NBA players’ 22nd birthday, Doncic’s 1/1 autographed rookie card sold for $4.6 million USD to collector Bolillo Lajan San and the Dallas Morning News. This National Treasures Auto Logoman One-of-One Doncic rookie card is reportedly the highest-priced basketball trading card ever sold.
The deal has supposedly shattered all previously known rookie card records. Last September, Giannis Antetokounmpo‘s rookie card sold for $1.812 million USD and LeBron James‘ autographed rookie card sold for $1.8 million USD last July. Honorable mentions include Anthony Davis’s autographed rookie card which sold for $1.05 million USD last month and Patrick Mahomes for $861,000 USD.
The Slovenian NBA player is only in his third year in the league and is already averaging 28.5 points, nine assists and 8.4 rebounds per game this season with the Mavs. He is also slated to start in his second All-Star game next week.
