As we reported last week, all were from Game 3, when Golden State took a commanding 3-0 lead in the series.
Steph Curry’s blue Golden State Warriors road shirt soared to $135,060, a record price for any game-worn item sold through NBA Auctions, topping the $100,040 paid for a jersey worn by Kobe Bryant in his last All-Star game. The sale came a little over a week after Curry’s Game 1 jersey sold for $70,065.
The Game 3 shirt worn by series MVP Kevin Durant, who scored 14 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter, sold for $71,260.
LeBron James’ bloodstained #23 home Cavs jersey climbed to $92,020.

Many of the cards were graded stars and rarities.
