The sale of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s 1966-67 game worn UCLA Bruins home jersey for $137,849 back on November 5 at SCP Auctions set a new record price for a college jersey. The previous auction record for a college gamer belonged to Christian Laettner’s 1992 Duke Blue Devils home jersey which sold for $119,500 in 2014.
The record-setting jersey was worn by Abdul-Jabbar (then Lew Alcindor) during his first NCAA championship season. The First team All-American, after sitting out his freshman year under then-NCAA rules, dominated as a sophomore varsity starter, leading UCLA to a 30-0 record while averaging 29 points and 15.5 rebounds per game.
Topps NOW continues to add some significant daily revenue to the company’s coffers.

Unsigned cards are print-on-demand and will be available until early Wednesday afternoon on the Topps NOW page with prices from $4-$10 each depending on the quantity ordered.
