The standard Hoops rookie card of Shaq shows him jumping to the ring with the ball in his hands above his head. Even though this card does not look as spectacular as some of his insert cards, it is an extremely recognizable card of Shaq.
Probably the most recognizable Shaq rookie card design-wise as it features him three times in progress of performing a dunk. It also features the #1 NBA DRAFT PICK on the top of the card.
The standard Topps rookie card of Shaq features him standing under the basket reaching out with his right arm. The picture does quite a good job of emphasizing Shaq‘s enormous size. A great entry-level Shaq rookie card in our opinion.
The 1992 Topps NBA set included a gold foil parallel called Topps Gold which features gold foil on the card. As Topps Chrome didn’t exist back then, this is Shaq’s most high-end Topps rookie card. This card comes with a very low PSA 10 pop for a 90s card as it is known for its bad condition. Definitely our favorite Shaq card, also due to the rarity.
Stadium Club was a set produced during Shaq‘s rookie year in 1992. The set included the sought-after insert set Beam Team which featured the biggest stars of the NBA at that time. It comes with a very recognizable and loud 90s design and shows young Shaq reaching above the ring.
