Like all modern players, the Kristaps Porzingis Rookie Card checklist is a varied one. Even as his star rises, some are straightforward and cheap. Others are exceptionally rare or are boosted with additions like autographs and patches. No matter the case, with the New York Knicks finding their undisputed centerpiece, Kristaps Porzingis Rookie Cards have found an audience.

Kristaps Porzingis Rookie Card Rankings

The immediate reaction wasn’t always positive — at least in the eyes of one young Knicks fan.

But that quickly changed. Even in his rookie season, Kristaps Porzingis not only showed that he was worthy of his fourth overall selection but that he had a certain x-factor about him. That has carried over to the collecting world and landing a Kristaps Porzingis Rookie Card from any 2015-16 basketball product means landing one of the best.

Collectors have more than 25 different Kristaps Porzingis Rookie Cards to choose from. And that doesn’t include the hundreds of inserts and parallels that are also out there. While Kristaps Porzingis autographs can be found in virtually every release, most fall under the insert category. There are just five autographed Kristaps Porzingis Rookie Cards found in base sets that have the RC tag. Understandably, these are some of the most expensive.

No Pricing Due to Scarcity:


2015-16 Panini Gala Kristaps Porzingis RC #136 /8

With just eight total copies, it’s tough to determine a reliable market price for the 2015-16 Panini Gala Kristaps Porzingis Rookie Card. As a whole, the brand doesn’t have quite the same level of prestige as Flawless and National Treasures. But eight copies. No matter the price on the extremely rare instances that one might change hands, it won’t be cheap.
