So you're wondering what the most expensive Nikola Jokic cards of all-time are? Let's get in to it!

In these undeniably entertaining NBA Playoffs, one player has a slew of legacy-defining moments. Nikola Jokic, the Serbian-born center, was famously drafted during a Taco Bell commercial. Now, he is redefining what it means to be a big man down low, mixing a Steve Nash passing ability with Hakeem Olajuwon’s footwork. His Denver Nuggets now look to secure their first-ever Larry O’Brien Trophy.

Jokic may not have as much clout in the trading card hobby as fellow European hooper Luka Doncic, but his cards have seen a tremendous uptick in value over the last few years. “The Joker” has many cards worth well over $50,000, with some of his better copies yet to surface.

Today, we will be showcasing the 10 most expensive Nikola Jokic cards of all-time. To keep the list fresh, we are only allowing each individual card to appear once. Let’s jump right in and show off some cool rookies, autographs, and 1/1s!

10. Nikola Jokić 2015-16 Panini Prizm Purple Prizm /99 Rookie PSA 10 – $10,400

2015 Panini Prizm Purple Nikola Jokic

To kick the list off, we have our first Prizm parallel. These days, 2015-16 Prizm hobby boxes are hard to come by, so it’s going to become more difficult to find these low-numbered rookies in circulation. Even still, getting a PSA 10 grade will be nearly impossible, so this is definitely a rookie card you’d want to add sooner rather than later.

9. Nikola Jokić 2015-16 Panini Noir Laundry Tag Rookie Patch Autograph /3 PSA 9 – $10,500

Nikola Jokic 2015 16 Panini Noir ADIDAS TAG PATCH AUTO

Check out the incredible patch on this RPA. Adidas stopped producing the NBA’s jerseys in 2017, so finding their laundry tag logo on a card has become increasingly rare. Nevertheless, this is one of the Joker’s best patch autographs to date, featuring a beautiful bronze-colored signature. Graded a PSA 9, it recently sold in May 2023 for $10,500.

8. Nikola Jokić 2015-16 Panini Prizm Orange Prizm /65 Rookie PSA 10 – $11,850

2015 16 Panini Prizm Orange Nikola Jokic

This orange Prizm parallel, limited to just 65 copies, perfectly contrasts and compliments the Nuggets’ colors and the actual basketball on the card. While Prizm cards may never reach the heights of the 2020 hobby boom, they are still a staple of modern card collecting. And when you compare this Prizm orange to other superstars, it may just be a tad undervalued.

7. Nikola Jokić / Luka Dončić / Dirk Nowitzki 2021-22 Immaculate Collection Triple Autograph /10 – $12,000

2021 immaculate Triple Auto Dirk Nowitski Luka Doncic Nikoli Jokic

Panini’s Immaculate Collection does an incredible job of pairing superstar athletes onto one card. This triple autograph of Dončić, Nowtizki and Jokić showcases some penmanship from three of the best European-born players. Each of these leaders possesses their own unique skill set, and each has changed the way we think about basketball. This stunner last sold for $12,000 during a 2023 eBay auction.

6. Nikola Jokić / Emmanuel Mudiay 2015-16 Immaculate Collection Dual Logoman Rookie Patch Autograph 1/1 – $12,500

2015 16 Immaculate Nikola Jokic Emmanuel Mudiay Logoman

If you asked Nuggets fans in 2015 which of these players would become a 2x MVP, the answer wouldn't have been Jokić. While Mudiay contributed solid minutes for some of those struggling Denver teams, he never became the dynamic guard many predicted him to be. Regardless, this is an incredible dual RPA from Panini Immaculate, and it’s one of the few Jokic rookie logomans in existence.

5. Nikola Jokić 2015-16 Panini Prizm Mojo Prizm /25 Rookie PSA 10 – $14,402

Nikola Jokic 2015 16 Panini Prizm Mojo

Next, we have another short-printed rookie from 2015-16 Prizm. The mojo parallel is reminiscent of the “Row 0” cards from Flair Showcase sets of the 1990s. Limited to just 25 copies, this PSA 10 is visually striking and would gravitate just about any collector to it at a card show or hobby shop. Only three PSA 10s exist currently, with the highest sale coming from this June 2022 Goldin auction.

4. Nikola Jokić 2015-16 Panini Prizm White Sparkle SP Rookie BGS 10 – $18,000

2015 16 Panini White Sparkle Prizm Nikola Jokic

Unlike most sought-after Prizm parallels, the White Sparkle short prints are not inserted into hobby packs. Instead, they are claimed through the Panini Rewards site by using Panini Points. They are not serial numbered, but they are typically limited to just 15-20 copies. 

With only a handful in circulation, this is a stellar BGS 10 grade of the Joker. It’s no surprise why this is his most expensive Prizm card to date, as it sold for $18,000 in August of 2021. Interestingly enough, his gold Prizm hasn’t sold since 2018, so be on the lookout for that one to pop up at a major auction house.

3. Nikola Jokić 2019-20 Panini Flawless Logoman Patch 1/1 BGS 9 – $19,200

Nikola Jokic 2019 20 Panini Flawless Logoman

Next, we have a Jokić logoman that lacks the John Hancock. However, with so few of these in existence, this is still one of the better hits to come out of any recent Flawless product. It received a BGS 9 grade, and the card also sold during a 2022 Goldin auction. Many of the Joker’s high-end sales happened last year after an early Western Conference exit. It would be enticing to see how these cards would fare currently with his team on the fringe of a title.

2. Nikola Jokić / Jamal Murray 2020-21 Immaculate Collection Dual Logoman Patch Autograph 1/1 PSA 8/AUTO AUTH – $24,960

Nikola Jokic Jamal Murray 2020 21 Immaculate Collection Dual Logoman

The awe-striking duo of Murray and Jokić has been must-see TV during these playoffs. Murray has elevated his game to become one of the best guards in the league, and the Joker has made big play after big play. While the two have an undeniably talented supporting cast, this card commemorates one of the best duos the NBA has seen in recent years. A stunner out of 2020 Panini Immaculate, this one last sold for just shy of $25,000 during a 2022 Goldin auction.

1. Nikola Jokić 2015-16 National Treasures Rookie Autograph 1/1 PSA 9 – $61,200

2015 16 National Treasures Rookie Autographs Platinum Nikola Jokic

Unlike most recent NBA superstars, the Denver big man doesn’t have a National Treasures RPA. However, this on-card rookie signature works as a worthy substitute. This copy is also the platinum 1/1 parallel, and it received a PSA 9 grade. High grades on thicker cards from National Treasures and Flawless are notoriously hard to come by, so this is a true grail for Joker collectors.

This mint copy last sold for just north of $61,000 during a 2021 Goldin auction, but we imagine that it would spike if put up for auction today.
