Leonard also wore the jersey in one game of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Kyle Lowery’s Game 4 Finals shirt sold for $12,100 while the one donned by Pascal Siakam went for $11,605.’
Leonard’s jerseys from Games 1 and 3 of the Finals sold for just over $50,000 each earlier this summer.

An 1953 Bowman Color baseball display box—one of fewer than 10 believed to still exist—sold for $3,259 at Collect Auctions last week. Not bad for an empty box.
A full box of 1975 Topps baseball cello packs sold for $7,122.
A former Olympian sold his gold and bronze medals to cover medical expenses.
RR Auctions says Alexei Grishin, an aerial skiing champion who won gold at the 2010 Vancouver games, consigned his medal to RR Auctions where it recently sold for $68,750. It’s the first time a gold medal from Vancouver has been sold at auction.
Grishin’s 2002 bronze medal from the Salt Lake City Winter Games went for $28,410.
The medal is among the heaviest in Olympic history. Each of the 615 that were created for the Vancouver Games features a hand-cropped section of the artwork that ensures that no two are the same.
Grishin’s gold was the first-ever winter Olympic gold medal for Belarus and the winning bidder was a collector from that country.
“We’re thrilled that medal will be returning to Belarus,” said Bobby Livingston, Executive VP at RR Auction. “Grishin plans to use the proceeds from the sale to pay for an operation and related medical expenses of a close friend. Everyone involved is a winner in this sale.”
Other sales from the auction of Olympic memorabilia included a torch from the 1952 Oslo Winter Games which netted $50,000 and a set of gold, silver and bronze winner’s medals presented to the president of the Lake Placid Olympic Organizing Committee in 1980 that went for $25,000.
Complete auction results are available on RR’s website.
