LeBron James may not be in this year’s NBA Finals, but he is still the talk of the town!
The NBA superstar’s high school jersey is reportedly being estimated to be auctioned for up to $600,000.
In an official press release shared with AfroTech, Julien’s Auctions announced that the Sports Legends auction for some of the world’s most sought-after sports treasures will take place on July 17 and July 18.
Julien’s Auctions is the world-record-breaking auction house to the stars and the star-studded event includes some of the best of the best in the sports world.
The event will feature items from Tom Brady, Zinedine Zidane, Ichiro Suzuki, Mike Trout, Roger Maris, and more.
LeBron James’ St. Vincent — St. Mary’s high school basketball jersey which he wore on “The Chosen One” 2002 magazine cover for “Sports Illustrated” is estimated to sell between $400,000-$600,000.
Colin Kaepernick’s game-worn and photo-matched No. 10 University of Nevada 2008 season football jersey are also among the list of novelty items to be sold during the auction. It is estimated to sell for between $30,000 and $50,000.
For anywhere between $200,000 to $400,000 attendees can also get their hands on Michael Jordan’s rare and highly sought-after 1986-1987 Fleer No. 57 basketball rookie card, BGS Mint 9 and 10. It is considered one of the most influential in the trading card market.
In addition, some of the late great Kobe Bryant’s Lakers rookie-season uniforms will be available at the highly-anticipated auction. One of those will be a Lakers home gold uniform which is one of the first uniforms that the NBA legend ever wore in the league during the 1996-1997 season. However, of course, a piece as legendary as this one will cost auction-goers a pretty penny. This specific Lakers uniform is estimated to sell for anywhere between $50,000 and $70,000.
Just this week, AfroTech reported that a rare Steph Curry trading card sold for $5.9 million which ultimately broke a world record.
