The season will remain on hiatus, but the memorabilia market for some of the NBA’s top young stars is still active.
A collector recently snared Zion Williamson’s NBA debut jersey for $80,000 and another is expected to bring a strong five-figure price when it closes this week. A pair of Luka Doncic jerseys netted more than $60,000 combined a few weeks ago. Now, some game-worn gear used in the Rising Stars Game during All-Star Weekend last month is putting up impressive numbers.
The jerseys from Team USA’s 151-131 victory over Team World in Chicago last month are on the block at NBA Auctions. Among the listings: shirts worn by Williamson, Doncic, Trae Young, Ja Morant, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, RJ Barrett and Devonte Graham.
Williamson was wearing his jersey when he famously dislodged the backboard with a ferocious second quarter jam.
Doncic also made a memorable shot that night–a buzzer-beating three pointer from beyond the midcourt line.
Bidding for Doncic’s jersey stood at $13,571 as of Tuesday afternoon while Williamson’s shirt pushed toward $6,000.
Over two weeks remain in the auctions, which are underway as part of a special auction of NBA All-Star weekend jerseys and warmups on the NBA Auctions website.
