LeBron James trading card auctioned for more than $2m

A trading card of NBA star LeBron James fetched a large sum - although it failed to get close to the record fee paid for such an item of memorabilia.

LeBron James es elegible para firmar una extensión contractual con los Lakers de un año por 47 millones de dólares o dos años por 97.1 millones.

A collectible trading card of Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James has been auctioned for $2.4 million.

The unique 2020-21 Panini Flawless Triple Logoman of James includes embedded segments of the 37-year-old’s game-worn jerseys from his time at the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers.

The card was auctioned by the collectibles and memorabilia marketplace Goldin.

$2.4m outlay falls short of record fee for sports trading card

It had been anticipated that the sale could break the all-time record for a sports trading card, which is a Honus Wagner baseball card that went for $6.6m in 2021.

Panini’s 2020-21 Flawless release included five Triple Logoman cards, made up of patches from three-star players, though James’ was the only card that features three patches from one player.

The four other cards include patches from Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry; Draymond Green, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson; Anthony Edwards, LaMelo Ball and Tyrese Haliburton, and Jayson Tatum, Luka Doncic and Zion Williamson.
