The 2023-24 Bowman Chrome University 1/1 SuperFractor featuring LeBron James and his son Bronny of USC has been pulled at Jim & Steve’s Sports Cards in Waukegan, IL.
The card was highlighted when Fanatics kicked off LeBron’s new card and autograph deal with the company last month, just ahead of the product’s release.
There was no immediate word on whether the card would be placed for sale or consigned to auction.
The stick Connor McDavid used to record his first goal of the 2023-24 season is among the items in the newest auction of items used by the Edmonton Oilers superstar at MeiGray.
The stick carries a photo match to the Oilers’ 4-3 loss to the Vancouver Canucks on October 14 at Rogers Place in Edmonton. McDavid had one goal and one assist in the game.
A game-used helmet worn in several games during the 2022-23 season, including the one in which he recorded his 50th goal of the year, currently carries the highest bid in the auction.
McDavid’s 2022-23 NHL All-Star Game skates are also part of the ten-lot sale. McDavid wore the CM Tacks Skates while captaining the Pacific Division in the game held a year ago in Las Vegas.
Bidding continues through Feb. 22 at MeiGrayAuctions.com.

Upper Deck is once again offering a contest that will send the winner to the Stanley Cup Finals and put them into one of the company’s hockey card products.
Contestants will be asked to demonstrate how they positively influence the fanbase and community of their favorite NHL teams. The nominees will compete against one another in an online vote. The “Team MVP,” or first-place winners from each NHL team, will move on to the final round of voting. The final stage will crown the “Ultimate MVP” who receives the most votes.
In years past, “My MVP” voting took place through social media, however for this year’s contest, Upper Deck has shifted the voting portal to host its own “My MVP” website to centralize the voting process and focus on the nominees.
Fans who are 18 years and older can nominate themselves through Feb. 23 by logging onto Upper Deck’s nomination page, submitting contact information, and sharing why they deserve to be the “Ultimate MVP.”
The winner will receive a prize package that includes two 2023-24 Stanley Cup Playoffs tickets, $500 USD travel voucher, one-night accommodation, and an official trading card that will be found in 2024-25 Upper Deck product.
