Spurs’ Boban Marjanovic arrives on first NBA Rookie Card at perfect time

He’s a 7-foot-3 NBA rookie who’s on the only team with perhaps the best shot of dethroning the Golden State Warriors’ juggernaut. He’s a rookie who’s only averaged 5.7 points and 3.6 rebounds a game but already has regional TV commercial appearances because he’s already got a bit of a cult following.

His name is Boban Marjanovic … and he’s a San Antonio Spur who’s also now got his first official NBA Rookie Card from Panini America. It’s arrived at a perfect time, too.

Thanks to 2015-16 Donruss, which officially arrives tomorrow, Marjanovic appears on his first two NBA cards — one a Rated Rookie and one in The Rookies insert set. There could be others, though these are the first to have arrived — and sold — on eBay in advance of a checklist and the product’s widespread release.

Marjanovic’s only other cards? A 2015-16 Upper Deck Turkish Airlines Euroleague base card and foil parallel.

The Donruss cards arrive just as he’s coming off his best month in the league. He had five double-digit scoring games in January — and he only has nine all season. His career-high of 18 points came back on Dec. 7 in a 119-68 rout of the lowly 76ers.

The 27-year-old Serbian has been a pro since 2006, signing a one-year deal with San Antonio last July.
