Jerseys from Game 3 of this year’s NBA Finals are on the auction block and bidders haven’t been shy about trying to snare shirts worn by the stars of the Warriors and Cavs.
With bidding set to close Thursday, the blue Golden State jersey donned by Steph Curry carried a high bid of over $40,000 to lead the pace. Curry wore the jersey not only during Game 3 but also during four other playoff games including two Western Conference finals contests against San Antonio.
The jersey worn by Kevin Durant, who was eventually named MVP of the Finals, had received the most bids (59) and was sitting at $34, 587.
If you like a little blood on your gamers, LeBron James’ shirt is there for the taking. James had a memorable night in the June 7 contest, scoring 39 points, grabbing 11 rebounds and dishing out nine assists. What appears to be blood smears are seen on the front of the jersey, which appears to have been on his back in the final stages of the 118-113 Warriors win. In photos from the end of the game, James can be seen walking off the court wearing the blood-stained home white jersey. As of Wednesday night, it had a high bid of $28,019.
Jerseys worn by Golden State’s Klay Thompson ($8,908) and Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving ($7,089) looked likely to hit $10,000 by the time bidding ends Thursday night.
The Warriors’ jerseys have ‘The Finals’ patch on the back of the jersey above the player’s name and a ’42’ patch in honor of the late Nate Thurmond on the left breast.
The Cavaliers’ jerseys have ‘The Finals’ patch on the back of the jersey above the player’s name.
