Jayson Tatum is a fan favorite in the city of Boston where he plays for the Boston Celtics basketball team. He is one of the team’s most valuable players and the value of his trading cards tends to be a reflection on this. With what is expected to be a long and impressive career for the young talented player, some say it may very well be a good time to invest in his basketball cards.

At 23 years old, Tatum has already been recognized as a 3-time NBA All-Star. In the recent 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics, which took place in 2021 due to COVID-19, Tatum was a part of Team USA and was given a gold medal. During his 5 years with the Boston Celtics, Tatum has averaged 23.7 points per game.

When viewing Tatums rookie card data, you can see that the trend line has been moving upwards in recent months. The strongest example that shows this increase in value is with Tatum’s 2017 Prizm Silver rookie card. When looking at the sales data associated with this rookie card, over the last 3 months you’ll see a 60% increase- starting at $1,050 and now sitting around $1,684. The 60% increase is the result of 77 cards sales that have taken place within the past 90 days on eBay’s marketplace.

With the NBA’s regular season behind us, it’s a good time to reevaluate your portfolio of basketball cards and strategize on which new cards may be a good investment.
