A signed 1997 Upper Deck Game Jersey Patch Autograph Card, which features Michael Jordan wearing his 1992 NBA All-Star Game uniform, sold at auction for $840,000.

TMZ Sports reported the sale is one of the biggest for a Jordan card on record.

"It's a piece of history in that it was the very first time you could pull a game-used and autographed Michael Jordan card out of a trading card pack," PWCC exec Jesse Craig said.

The card itself received an 8 grade (giving it near-mint status), and the autograph was a perfectly preserved 10.

Jordan scored 18 points and had five assists in the 1992 All-Star Game, which was a losing effort for the Eastern Conference.

The most valuable Michael Jordan card on record sold for $1.4 million in 2021. This was actually a different version of the same card, which could be a sign of a waning collectibles market after a massive boon in recent years.
