A $70 investment for a spot in a 2019-20 Immaculate Basketball box break will turn into a nice windfall for one lucky collector this winter.
The one of a kind LeBron James NBA Logoman game-used patch card that emerged from that break last month has been graded and consigned to the Lelands where it will be sold in the company’s February ‘Winter Classic’ Auction. Beckett Grading Services awarded the card a Gem Mint 9.5 grade. It’s expected to sell for $100,000 or more.
“Important high-grade cards like this rapidly increase in value, so a winning bid that exceeds our expectations would not surprise me,” stated Jordan Gilroy of Lelands.
Basketball card prices have escalated significantly over the last year and while it’s not a rookie card, the Logoman LeBron from the Lakers’ championship season is already on the radar of high-end collectors.
The card was pulled from a break of 2019-20 Immaculate Basketball at Jaspy’s Southern California offices on November 19.
In June, Lelands sold another expensive card pulled from a Jaspy’s break, setting a record for the most expensive modern hockey card ever sold at auction when the 2015-16 The Cup Connor McDavid rookie numbered 97 of 99 closed at $135,811.
Lelands is in the midst of another auction that ends this weekend but the company is continuing to fill spots in its February catalog.
