Luca Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks is one of the biggest rising stars in the NBA, and if you don’t mind it, just take a look at the price that someone recently paid for a one-off rookie card And similarity: $ 4.6 million, which according to a recent CBS Sports report is also the highest payout for an NBA trading card.
The card features “NBA Lawman Catch, from a Mavericks jersey worn doncic, and a signature in blue ink,” all of which make it a unique piece, the only one of its kind with all of these features, Who contributed to his record breaking value. In another interesting point in the history of this card, the moment it was taken out of its pack (a box of the 2018–19 Panini National Treasury Basketball Trading Card) was actually captured live on camera and during the live stream on the Internet Aired on the Layton Sports Card shop located in Altamonte Springs, FL, as you can see in the tweet below:
At $ 4.6M, this is a new record for the highest price a basketball card has ever paid for.

‘The card was initially purchased after opening by a collector named Bolillo Lajan San, who paid an undisclosed amount for the card (although TMZ has reported that he had paid more than $ 400,000). Then, he turned around and sold it to another collector, Nick Fiorello, who paid $ 4.6 million for the card. This makes it the most valuable basketball card ever, but the second most valuable trading card for any sport, second only to the 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle, which sold earlier this year for $ 5.2 million .
Clearly, the market for premium collector’s items in the world of trading cards continues to go up and up, and if Donic’s own star is on the rise, you can expect the value of this cheat card to do so.
