LeBron James Rookie Card Is Currently Going For $960,000 At Auction


There are still three weeks left in the auction, but a LeBron James rookie card has already reached a record price.

Goldin Auctions is auctioning off a 2003-04 James rookie card that includes his signature and a piece of a game-worn jersey. Per Darren Rovell, a recent bid came in at $960,000, making this the most expensive modern day sports card ever.

The auction doesn't end for another 21 days, either. So when all is said and done, this LeBron rookie card should sell for over $1 million.

Last month, an autographed rookie card of Los Angeles Angels superstar Mike Trout - widely regarded as the best player in baseball today - sold for $900,000. That was tied for the most expensive modern day sports card sold. A Michael Jordan-LeBron James Logoman Exquisite Collection card also sold for $900,000 back in February.

The LeBron rookie card is graded at 9.5 in "gem mint" condition. It's near perfect all across the board; the corners are graded at 9 and the centering, edges and surface are all graded at 9.5.


As memorabilia collectors know, prestigious and luxurious cards like this only become more and more valuable as time passes. So the lucky buyer of this James rookie card should be able to sell it for several millions of dollars in the future, if they so desire.

James, the best basketball player of his era, is still among the game's top players at the age of 35. Prior to the season suspension, his Los Angeles Lakers had the best record in the Western Conference at 49-14. James has averaged 25.7 points, 7.9 rebounds and 10.6 assists per game this season.

Memorabilia of James will always be highly collectible, so any collector would be wise to get several luxurious pieces while they can. Just look at how much collectors will pay for Michael Jordan memorabilia, and his career only ended 17 years ago.
