Big time NBA jersey collectors are zeroing in on the Christmas Day jerseys that have hit the auction block, including the one worn by LeBron James.
NBA Auctions is offering jerseys from the Lakers, Sixers and Pelicans, all worn in the holiday games.
Bidding for the James jersey has already passed $30,000 with more than two weeks left. He missed a triple-double by one rebound in the Lakers’ loss to the Clippers that day. He’s now played in 14 Christmas games during his career.
Jerseys worn by Anthony Davis, Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Lonzo Ball and other players are also on the block with others likely to be added in the coming days.

While there’s no indication yet that he’ll get to keep it–or ever sell it if he does–it’s worth a bayou full of cash according to Ken Goldin of Goldin Auctions, who talked about it Tuesday morning.
