The NBA has officially auctioned the jersey worn by superstar LeBron James in the first game of this year’s finals. In the end, this highly collectible LeBron jersey was shot for a sky-high price of $100,322.
From the published data, this NBA jersey was bid a total of 68 times, and the final price exceeded $100,000, which shows the high popularity of LeBron. It’s worth mentioning that the Cavaliers also had a player whose Finals G1 jersey also fetched a high price. JR’s G1 jersey also shot a price of $23,548, although far less than LeBron’s, but for ordinary players this is called the price of heaven.

Although the same shot out of the sky, but the significance is completely different. LeBron’s G1 jersey shot a high price because he played a historic game in G1. In Finals G1, LeBron played 47 minutes and cut down 51 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists. This is LeBron’s 8th career 40+ points, while he is also the first player in 25 years to get 50+ points in the NBA Finals. And JR’s jersey shot a high price because he made a fatal mistake in the last moment of regular time in G1, burying a good opportunity for the Cavaliers to win the game.
Currently, the jerseys worn by the Cavaliers players in G2 of the finals are also in the auction. So far, the most popular is still LeBron’s jersey, the bid has exceeded $40,000.
In contrast, fans are not very interested in the rest of the Cavaliers’ G2 jerseys. The data shows that the second place in the bidding is Kevin Love’s jersey, the current bid is only 1020 U.S. dollars, far inferior to LeBron’s jersey. JR’s G1 jersey shot 20,000 U.S. dollars, but his G2 jersey is currently only given a price of 390 U.S. dollars.
As the first person in the league today, LeBron has always been highly sought after. As early as 2015, LeBron’s jersey worn in G1 and G2 of the finals was auctioned for $85,925.
