One thing is for certain, and two things are for sure, sports fans will spend almost any amount of money to get their hands on an authentic trading card. Back by popular demand is a rare LeBron James Triple Logoman card that just sold at an auction for a whopping $2.4 million.
According to Bleacher Report, the card features the actual NBA logo patch from three of his jerseys with all three of the franchises that he’s played for throughout the course of his career. Therefore, it includes patches from his uniform of where it all started with the Cleveland Cavaliers, as well as those from the Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers.
As previously reported by AfroTech, items like these play a huge factor in James’ billionaire status, which he hit earlier this month.
According to the official listing by Goldin Auctions, the 2020-21 Panini Flawless Triple Logoman patch card is the highest sale price card to be pulled and sold within the same year. The card also pulled off a historic moment with the largest independent U.S. live stream shopping app, Whatnot, last month.
