The home white jersey worn by LeBron James in Game 3 of the NBA Finals sold for a record price of $74,504 Thursday night.
The online auction of jerseys worn by the Cavs and Warriors was conducted through NBA Auctions and MeiGray.
The Finals MVP played 40 minutes and registered a game-high 32 points with 6 assists, 11 rebounds, a steal and two blocked shots, leading the Cavs to a 120-90 win, their first in the best-of-7 series they’d eventually come back to win, despite a 3-1 deficit.
Steph Curry’s Game 3 shirt sold for $27,797 later in the evening while Kyrie Irving’s jersey brought $15,575 and Draymond Green’s went for $10,147.
A jersey worn by James in Game 1 of the Finals sold last week for $52,592.

Opening up a card shop is tough enough. Lasting as long as Ian Taylor has is something else. Taylor’s Baseball Cards and Collectables opened in the southern California community of Buena Park 25 years ago.
He’s still going strong.
Taylor, who began collecting as a kid in the 1960s, had plenty of competition back in the early 1990s but he survived, adapting to all kinds of changes along the way, but building up a steady and loyal clientele of customers who still come by to open packs and talk about sports and collecting.
The Orange County Register published a story about the shop on Thursday.
Kris Bryant tweeted this on Wednesday and it’s been in several national media outlets since then but if you haven’t seen it, it’ll warm your true collector’s heart.
