AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A rare LeBron James autographed rookie card is up for auction and could fetch up to $200,000.
The Akron Beacon Journal reports just eight bidders had vied as of Friday for what's being billed as the world's rarest and most valuable James basketball trading card. The leading bid of $85,000 was expected to grow before the auction closed Saturday.
The one-of-a-kind card from Upper Deck's 2003/04 Ultimate Collection series features a picture of the Cleveland Cavalier taking a shot, along with a swath of the NBA logo from his game uniform. It was randomly placed into a pack of cards.
Officials at New Jersey-based Goldin Auctions haven't disclosed the identity of the seller but say the card will be sold as the minimum $50,000 bid has been met.
