If you weren’t able to scrape up $125,000 or so to snare a Steph Curry or Lebron James game-worn NBA Finals jersey, you can still own something from the recently concluded championship series. Dozens of hooded warmups and pants from the Finals are now up for sale through NBA Auctions.
The hooded warmups for the first couple of games in the series include those donned by Curry, James, MVP Kevin Durant and other stars and role players. As of Monday night, the high bid for Curry’s photo-matched Game 1 white warmup stood at $2,000 with Durant’s at just over $1,000. Bidding for the jackets worn by James in Games 1 and 2 was a bit slower with each sitting at under $800. The warmups will stand among the last game-worn items from James’ second stint with the Cavs. He left Cleveland for a four-year Lakers deal Sunday night.
While those used by star players were photo-matched, some are being sold as game issued because of the lack of available media to do the match. However, they were delivered to MeiGray by the NBA/MeiGray Game-Worn Authentication Program immediately after the conclusion of the series.
The auctions are set to conclude on two different nights next week at Auctions.NBA.com.
Last month, game-worn jerseys from James and Curry each netted over $100,000.
