It was a forgettable season for the Los Angeles Lakers, but bidders are still bullish on LeBron. A jersey from one of his triple-double performances this year sold for over $140,000 late Thursday night.
James wore the City Edition jersey during the Lakers’ 122-115 overtime victory over the New York Knicks on February 5, 2022 at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, CA. Returning from a five-game injury absence, he played 39 minutes, scoring 29 points with a game-high 10 assists and 13 rebounds. It was James’ fourth triple-double of the season, the 103rd of his career and fifth against the Knicks.

There’s no rookie card, but Greg Morris cards’ current auction has just about every other vintage Mantle card you can think of. The Southern California company has no less than 115 vintage Mantles in various grades up on the block via eBay.
The auctions close on successive nights starting Friday.
One of eBay’s largest volume sellers, Morris currently has over 28,000 cards listed for auction and there’s also a 1952 Topps Mantle (BVG 5.5) listed on a Buy it Now.
PWCC is adding a new feature to its Weekly Auction marketplace that enables users to submit cards from their Vault Portfolio directly to one of the company’s weekly auctions—even if the auction is already underway.
An item can be listed up to four days before closing. The company says it provides “additional selling opportunities that create a more liquid, flexible, and dynamic market.”
“Flash Auctions create an exciting and reactive marketplace for both sellers and buyers,” said Chris Callahan, Director of Marketing at PWCC Marketplace. “It provides the opportunity for sellers to time the market as they see most appropriate. If an athlete has a record-breaking performance, or there is a sudden rise in demand for a particular card, a seller can immediately place the item on the auction block. This also creates additional buying opportunities for those seeking to swiftly secure assets they desire for their portfolio.”
