His 2017 Panini Donruss Optic auto is a solid alternate rookie. Try offering $15k or less.

A PSA 10 of the base Optic rookie is available now for less than the two most recent comps ($2k and $1,800)

If you’re on a budget, you can go for an alternate alternate rookie with the 2017 Panini Prestige card. A PSA 9 can be had for $140 ($90 if you sign up using a voucher), which is below recent comps.

Kobe Bryant 1997 Skybox Jambalaya PSA 10

About the asset

This is a 1997 Skybox Jambalaya insert card for Kobe Bryant. These cards were exceedingly rare, falling only one every 720 packs. There were 15 of these cards, and the checklist was top notch: Allen Iverson, Anfernee Hardaway, Dennis Rodman, Kevin Garnett, Michael Jordan, Shaq, Tim Duncan, and Kobe are the highlights.

These cards are al oval-shaped, and they were exceptionally popular with collectors when they debuted.

Personally, I think it looks like my six-year-old drew a picture of a basketball player and then was sick all over it.
