LeBron James’ St. Vincent-St. Mary Jersey Auctioned Off For $150K


One of this millenniums’ most famous jerseys was up for grabs! The jersey LeBron James wore on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 2002, while still playing high school basketball for St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in Akron, got auctioned off by Goldin Auctions:


“This is the jersey that LeBron James wore when he was introduced to the sporting world at large. MeiGray has photo matched this jersey to Getty Images shots from the February 3, 2002 photo shoot at St. Vincent-St. Mary Gymnasium as well as the game later that day at James A. Rhodes Arena in Akron, Ohio. On that occasion LeBron’s St. Vincent-St. Mary Fighting Irish defeated the Archbishop Hoban Knights 74-49, with LeBron scoring 32 points with 7 rebounds. One of the photos taken that day was later used on the cover of the February 18, 2002 Sports Illustrated, LeBron’s first national exposure before being the number 1 draft pick in the 2003 NBA draft.”


The auction ended last night, and the jersey was sold for $150,000.
