A Michael Jordan autographed card sold for $95,000 through PWCC Marketplace, according to TMZ Sports.

The trading card was one of 23 1997 Upper Deck Michael Jordan All-Star Game Jersey cards. Coming with an autograph and an near-mint rating of eight by Beckett Grading Services, it's clear this was a valuable commodity.

Interestingly, the same card sold for nearly half the price of $45,998 four years ago.

George Mikan's rookie card still holds the record for highest value for a basketball card after being sold for $403,664 in 2015.
