LeBron James Rookie Card Sells for $5.2 Million, Most Expensive Basketball Card Ever Sold
By ESPN.com // April 28, 2021
Dallas Mavericks Luka Doncic card held previous record of 4.6 Million
(ESPN) – Even amid the longest injury stretch of his Hall of Fame career, somehow LeBron James still managed to rewrite record books.
A 2003-04 Upper Deck Exquisite Collection RPA (rookie patch autograph) parallel LeBron James card, numbered out of 23, was sold privately for $5.2 million with PWCC Marketplace.
The Beckett Grading Services-graded 9 card (with a perfect 10 signature) claims the throne for most expensive basketball card, knocking off the $4.6 million one-of-one 2018-19 Panini National Treasures Luka Doncic Logoman RPA sold in March.
The sale ties the all-time record for any card with the 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle card purchased by Rob Gough this past January, also through PWCC.
