This PSA 9 Graded Jayson Tatum Rookie Card was part of a Steel City Collectibles Multi-Sport, Multi-Box 2023 Leaf Bang Break. It was actually an elite Leaf Bang Break where all the cards were Buybacks! High-end AND Graded, Leaf Bang Breaks never disappoint. 2 Basketball, 2 Baseball, and Medol came out on the winning end of this Personal Break. That RC Shield sure does look good on a Prizm card, especially when it’s the Rookie Card of a 2022 MVP candidate!
Jayson Christopher Tatum Sr was selected by the Boston Celtics 3rd overall in the 2017 NBA draft. He’s now a perennial All-Star, 2-time All-NBA selection, Gold Medal winner in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, and was named the NBA Eastern Conference Finals Most Valuable Player in 2022.
Before all that, he played 1 season for the Duke Blue Devils before entering the NBA Draft, where he played 29 games and averaged 16.8 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.1 assist, 1.3 steals per game and was named to the ACC All-Freshman team and a 3rd Team All-ACC selection.
Tatum was also instrumental in the Celtics’ 2021-22 Finals run, where his dreams of winning a Chip were crushed by the Warriors. The only thing missing from his Trophy Case is a Ring and an MVP trophy.
Tatum and Celtics continue to search for NBA Gold, in the meantime his cards continue to grow in value and his son, Jayson Jr aka “Deuce”, is simply adorable in post-game interviews.
