LeBron James is the king on the court and now on the auction block too — the NBA superstar’s used jersey from Game 7 of the 2013 NBA Finals just sold for $3.7 million … a new record!!
Sotheby’s announced the final price tag for the incredible piece of memorabilia Friday morning — making it the highest-selling game-worn James jersey to date.
This specific #6 jersey is the exact threads James wore when the Miami Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs, 98-88 … securing LeBron’s second championship.
It was a historical night for James … as it was the first Game 7 of his NBA career, and he secured his second NBA Finals MVP award in the process.
The jersey sold for $3,680,000 at the auction … which makes it the third most valuable game-worn jersey ever sold at Sotheby’s, and among “the highest prices achieved for any game-worn jersey on the open market.”
Sotheby’s tells TMZ Sports it was purchased by a private collector.
“Today’s tremendous result comes at a pivotal time in LeBron James’ career, where he is in arm’s reach of clenching the all-time points record — one of the NBA’s most revered accolades,” Sotheby’s officials said on Friday.
Now that LeBron is inching closer to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, expect all his memorabilia to skyrocket.
