Two youngsters, a pair of still youthful veterans and one guy who debuted when portable CD players were still hot top the list of the top selling trading cards of NBA All-Stars this season.
The struggles of the Los Angeles Lakers apparently haven’t diluted interest in LeBron James cards. The 37-year old has been the top selling player on eBay all season, according to eBay data.
So far this season, over $20 million worth of James cards have sold on the platform, although the top selling card features another NBA icon. A 2003 Upper Deck SP Authentic James/Michael Jordan dual autograph card graded PSA 10 sold for $102,000 on December 10.
Twelve LeBron cards have sold for $30,000 or more since the start of the NBA season, according to eBay’s Terapeak research. Since the start of the season, users have purchased over 140,000 of his cards for over $18 million.
