He’s the son of former basketballer Rowan Barrett, who’s the current GM of the Canadian men’s national team. It certainly doesn’t hurt the value of his rookie cards, and neither does his association with fellow starlet Zion Williamson at Duke.
Here’s the lowdown on three of the best rookie cards to look out for in regards to RJ Barrett Jr.
2019-20 Panini Contenders RJ Barrett Autograph Rookie Card (buy on eBay)
His college draft pick is autographed, and there are various versions that differ in price and rarity. The signature itself is a simple RB, but it’s enough to raise the value of the card drastically.
The College Ticket will see at least 25-50 bids on average when it’s available at auction, so expect to compete with multiple investors and collectors if you’re determined to snag one.
The back of the card features a roundup of his freshman season at Duke, as well as a couple of simple quotes from the man himself. Despite the bidding wars, you should be able to grab one for $200-$300.
2019-20 Prizm RJ Barrett Rookie Card #250 (buy on eBay)
As always the Prizm rookie card is a great long term investment when it comes to Barrett rookie cards and is an ideal buy for most collectors.
Numbered #250 the card shows Barrett directing traffic and looking to pass the rock.
We have bought a few of these cards in both PSA 10 and BGS 9.5.
2019-20 Immaculate Collegiate RJ Barrett Rookie Patch Autograph Card (buy on eBay)
You’d think that the patch would make this way more expensive than the others we’ve mentioned, especially when combined with his distinctive signature on the front of the card.
However, a good copy can be picked up for anywhere between $200-$300, making it a great choice if you want a more affordable option.
The front shows Bennett preparing to take a shot, while the back of the card features a paragraph talking up his high school career, noting his progression to the big leagues.
RJ Barret Rookie Card Value
The exact value of any one of his rookie cards is hard to predict and vary based on a variety of factors (i.e. grade, card brand, etc).

In recent weeks, Barrett posted his first career double-double in his maiden NBA victory over Chicago. He’s still struggling to hit his free-throws, but his rookie stats are otherwise impressive so far. The player has also risen to the challenge when playing point-guard, highlighting his versatility across the court.
He might not be as popular as former Duke’s teammate Zion, but Bennett is still a viable investment if you can pick up a card for the right price. His future looks bright, and his rookie cards are yet to inflate to ridiculous prices like many others.
At the sub $200 range, there’s a number of solid choices, as well as premium editions to look out for if you’re hoping to maximize profit in the future.
