Jersey LeBron James in which s Miami won the NBA championship by winning Saint Anthony Spurse with 95-88 in the decisive seventh game of the 2013 finals, it was sold at an auction in New York for 3.68 million US dollars, which is about 3.4 million euros.
With the achieved price, this jersey, in which James scored 37 points with 12 rebounds and four assists, became the third most expensive shirt worn in a game, which was sold at the auction house Sotheby’s.
The higher price was achieved by the jersey Michaela Jordana from the 1998 NBA Finals ($10.91 million), as well as the jersey he’s wearing Diego Maradona scored two historic goals, one with his hand, against England in the 1986 World Cup semi-final in Mexico ($9.28 million).

Previously the most expensive jersey that is LeBron James wore at one of the games was the shirt in which he performed at the All-Star game in 2020, and it was sold for 630 thousand US dollars.
An expert from Sotheby’s auction house Brahm Wachter believes that such a jump in the achieved price is the result of the current moment in LeBron James’ career, because the best basketball player in the world is “within reach” of becoming the player with the most scored points in the history of the NBA.
James reached 38,210 points and it is estimated that in the next two weeks he will overtake the previous record holder Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who finished his career with 38,387 points.
