An ultra-rare Zion Williamson rookie card could make you an instant millionaire if you find it.

A reward of $500,000 or about P25 million has been offered to anyone who could find this “Logoman” version of Williamson’s Rookie Patch Autograph which is said to be hidden in a box of  trading cards that could be anywhere  in the world.

A report described that the Panini America National Treasures card has the 2019 No. 1 NBA draft pick’s autograph  and also has an embedded NBA logo from a jersey.

Williamson’s rookie cards are one of the most-sought after in the market.
