LeBron James rookie card sells for a massive amount of money

LeBron James continues his Midas touch this year. According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, an anonymous bidder secured an extremely rare rookie card of the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar for a crazy sum.

It was an autographed card which, to add more value, also had a patch from a jersey that was worn by James back when he was a rookie.

In Rovell’s article, Goldin Auctions president Ken Goldin sounded off on the astounding bid, and hinted at what’s going to happen in his office in the near future.

“This shows the worldwide appeal of basketball, of basketball cards, and of LeBron James,” Goldin said. “My office is going to be buried in emails and phone calls for the next two weeks with people wanting me to sell their LeBron card.”

After making Cleveland and NBA history in the finals, this marks another historic feat involving LeBron James’ name.

At that price, the James card smashes the record for the highest price paid for a single signed card, easily beating a 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth autographed card, which sold for $50,787.
