Despite the early hype, there is not currently a huge supply of cards for Kristaps Porzingis, but the limited options are seeing tremendous interest from collectors, including several signed cards.

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 Prestige Kristaps Porzingis RC #209

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.

2015-16 Panini Prizm Kristaps Porzingis RC #348

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.

2015-16 Totally Certified Kristaps Porzingis RC #198

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.

  1. He’s become a favorite very quickly. Not just for his play but the way he has handled himself, from the booing by the “fans” in Brooklyn to the hype around his rookie season. The Knicks are more fun to watch now than they have been in several years. I was thrilled when I pulled the Orange Wave Prizm of him from my first retail pack of Prizm. You are welcome to use my scan of the card if you want to.
