LEBRON JAMES GAME-USED HIGH SCHOOL JERSEY FROM SPORTS ILLUSTRATED COVER UP FOR BIDS AT GOLDIN AUCTIONS
The St. Vincent-St. Mary Gold Fighting Irish jersey was worn by James for his photo shoot with Sports Illustrated on February 3, 2002 and then later that night in a dominant 74 – 49 victory against the Archbishop Hoban Knights in which he posted 32 points and 7 rebounds. It was a typical performance for the junior who was averaging 30.4 points, 9.7 rebounds and 5.9 assists.
The gold mesh jersey has “IRISH” arched above LeBron’s number “23” in green and white. An XXL Onsports label is sewn in the lower left front tail and his number “23” is repeated on the back. The jersey shows good toning overall with some scuffing and perspiration stains as would be expected on the gamer. Comes with LOAs from The MeiGray Group and Resolution Photomatching for the game use and photo match. Additionally, the jersey, worn by LeBron for most of his junior season, was given by LeBron to our consignor and his family. A detailed letter from our consignor who attended St. Vincent-St. Mary’s accompanies the jersey.
“Few players transcend their sport and few collectibles transcend the industry,” said Ken Goldin Founder of Goldin Auctions. “When you combine those two elements into one item records are broken and that is what we fully expect with this historic high school jersey of the world’s most recognizable athlete of this generation.”
