A few weeks after auctioning the much discussed LeBron James Triple Logoman patch card that netted over $2 million, Goldin is offering another card from the Upper Deck Exquisite lair. A 2006-07 Triple Logoman featuring the modern NBA’s top three icons: Michael Jordan, LeBron James and Kobe Bryant headlines the company’s National Elite Auction.
The 1/1 card doesn’t carry any autographs, but is considered among the 21st century basketball card grails. The front of the card—given an Authentic designation by PSA–has three patches from the players’ game-used jerseys.
The high bid as of Thursday was $1.1 million, not including the buyer’s premium.
The three players have combined for ten NBA MVPs and won 15 championships.
In all, the auction includes over 600 lots, all expected to sell for five, six or seven-figure prices. As of Thursday afternoon, more than a dozen lots carried bids of $100,000 or more.
Another 1/1 Logoman, this one from 2020-21 Panini Flawless featuring Golden State Warriors stars Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green is also in the auction and carries a 10 grade from PSA. That one has already been bid up to $250,000.
