A LeBron James rookie card sold for nearly $1.1 million at Goldin Auctions:
The Exquisite Rookie Patch card has been one of the more sought-after collectables for LeBron James.
A similar version of the card sold for $5.2 million in April 2021 to a private buyer, setting a record at the time for the most expensive basketball card in history.
The latest card was also rated a "9" in mint condition, featuring a LeBron autograph and part of the No. 23 in the patch. It has become one of the top cards available for a superstar with 18 All-Star selections, four MVPs and four NBA titles in his career.
With prices continuing to soar for all sports memorabilia, the seven-figure purchase could end up being a bargain for the buyer.
