Intended to be on the low side of low-end collecting, there is little to the rookie card for Porzingis in Panini Complete Basketball. While it does not offer much in terms of value, the bare-bones design is a solid option for TTM autograph requests.
2015-16 Panini Court Kings Kristaps Porzingis RC #113, #146, #179 (#/299), #212 (#/175), #245 (#/75), #278 (#/10)
Featuring plenty of variety, Court Kings offers collectors six different Porzingis rookie card designs in the base set. Rarity increases as the card number does and the final four cards are numbered from as many as 299 to as low as just ten copies. All the cards can be viewed in order below.
Simple and inexpensive, Hoops is a popular low-end choice and was the very first Kristaps Porzingis NBA card available. Collectors have gravitated to the other first in Hoops for Porzingis, his limited autograph cards like Hot Signatures.
Another basic rookie choice for Porzingis, 2015-16 Prestige is only found at Target. The real draw is the on-card autograph Pretigious Premieres Signatures insert with a moderate print run of 299 copies.
The chromium option for NBA collectors, Prizm features a silver-heavy design and also includes multiple Prizm Refractor parallels of varying color. This will likely go down as one of the more popular low-end rookies for Porzingis.
Like several of the Panini releases, Totally Certified relies heavily on silver in the design. However, a non-traditional card layout and the many micro-etched parallels help this Porzingis rookie card stand apart.
