Luka Doncic Rookie Pickup # 1: A Free 2018 Donruss RC, Now Slabbed a PSA 10

I'm a huge Luka Doncic fan. As a Phoenix Suns' fan I was hopeful they would draft Luka but of course Suns' fans can't have too many good things. I wanted to pick up a couple of Doncic cards but never made it a huge priority as I don't actively collect basketball. I was fortunate enough to stumble into a couple of free rookies and decided to submit them at work. The results were pleasant, to say the least.

The lower-end of the two cards I snagged is the above 2018-19 Panini Donruss base rookie. It came back as a PSA 10 and the card, while still affordable as a 10, is worth more in the grade than I ever thought it would be (what with Donruss being such a basic product despite it's nice eye appeal).


  1. That’s such a beauty - totally agree about Donruss’ eye appeal. I’ve picked up a few retail packs this year and I love the simple base design. Congrats on the 10! A great addition to your collection as his rookies prices are SKY high now.

    Do you collect Suns cards? I collect a lot of basketball and I’d be happy to send extras your way.

  2. Congratulations! I don't watch hoops, but the guys on the radio keep on saying he's the future of the NBA. Plus it seemed like every dealer at the show I attended two weekends ago had at least a few Doncic cards sitting in their display case.
