The jersey worn by LeBron James in the first half of the 2018 NBA All-Star Game has sold for $90,102—the second highest price paid for an All-Star jersey in NBA Auctions history.
Thirty-seven bids were made for the jersey, which was part of the annual auction of All-Star gear that began February 20. James was named MVP of the game, which was held at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on February 18. He scored 29 points, snared ten rebounds and dished out eight assists, narrowly missing a triple-double in 31 minutes of action. It was his 14th All-Star appearance.
The selling price trails only the $100,040 paid two years ago for the jersey Kobe Bryant wore in the first half of his final All-Star Game. It also ranks fourth among all gamers sold by NBA through its partnership with MeiGray behind Steph Curry’s Game 3 jersey from last season’s NBA Finals ($135,060), Bryant’s aforementioned 2016 All-Star shirt and LeBron’s 2017 Game 3 Finals jersey ($92,020).
Other jerseys sold in the auction included:
- Steph Curry $40,022
- Russell Westbrook $40,000
- James Harden $35,020
- Kevin Durant $20,020
Game-worn shorts, warmup jackets and pants from the All-Star Game are also being sold.
