Lelands Classic Auction Featuring Cards, Game Worn and More Ends June 29, 2024

The world’s best auction house presents rare and valuable treasures from Jordan, Ruth, LeBron, and much more, now available for bidding in the Lelands Summer Classic Auction. Bidding is open and concludes on June 29, 2024 at 10 PM ET. Bid, view and register for the auction at lelands.com. We have 1700+ incredible lots of the finest sports memorabilia and cards for you to view, consider, and bid on.

K.C. Jones’ 1972 Lakers NBA Championship Ring and a 1915 Babe Ruth Rookie and Red Sox PSA Type 1 Original Team Photo also Highlighted in Auction, Which Closes June 29

An ultra-rare LeBron James 2003-04 Exquisite Collection Basketball Rookie Patch Autograph Parallel #8/23 and Michael Jordan’s Bulls game-worn Air Jordan 1 sneakers from his 1985 broken foot game headline the Lelands 2024 Summer Classic Auction, which runs through June 29.

The extraordinary hobby fresh #78 LeBron James Upper Deck Exquisite RPA up for bid has been graded and encapsulated by BGS NM+ 7.5 with an Auto grade of 10. One of the most iconic and prized cards in the collecting world, King James’ rookie patch auto parallel is numbered to just 23 copies – matching his jersey number – making it so scarce and in demand that only one other has been graded by Beckett since July 2020.

Michael Jordan’s Bulls game-worn Air Jordan 1 sneakers from his broken foot game on October 29, 1985, are likely the last pair of original Jordan 1’s His Airness ever wore in an NBA game. The broken foot caused Jordan to miss 64 games in his second season with the Bulls, but he returned in time to help the team sneak into the playoffs. The one-of-a-kind MJ shoes, from the fateful night he suffered the first major injury of his pro career, come with MEARS LOA.

Additional auction centerpieces include the 1972 Lakers NBA World Championship ring issued to Hall of Fame player/coach K.C. Jones and a rare Type 1 photo of Babe Ruth from his 1915 rookie season with the Red Sox in what is one of the earliest images of The Bambino as a member of the Ree Sox.

The spectacular 1,700+ lot auction also features a 2003 Topps Chrome Black Refractor #111 LeBron James Rookie #326/500 PSA GEM MINT 10, one of two known 1972 Roberto Clemente 3,000th hit game full tickets (highest graded), a 2002 Lakers NBA Championship player ring, Shaquille O’Neal’s “shoe phone” from the 2005 NBA All-Star Game, and a 2018 LeBron James Lakers game-worn photo-matched jersey (MeiGray).

Among other auction highlights are a 1939 MLB inaugural Hall of Fame class baseball signed by 7 of 11 original members, a 1934 U.S. Tour of Japan album with team signature and original photos, a 1952 Topps #311 Mickey Mantle PSA 2, a 1953 Topps Mickey Mantle signed Beckett 4.5 Auto 9, an incredibly scarce 1967 Topps Stand-Ups #1 Pete Rose SGC VG-EX 4, and a 1999 George Sisler Jr. Yankees World Championship ring.

Also up for bid is a circa 1960 Ernie Davis Syracuse Orangemen game-worn jersey (MEARS A10), a Ben Roethlisberger 2015 Steelers game-worn photo-matched jersey from when he became the first Steeler to pass for 40,000 yards, a 1970 NBA Finals Game 7 “Willis Reed Game” ticket stub PSA GD 2 (MK), a 1986 NBA Playoffs Michael Jordan record 63 point game ticket stub PSA VG-EX 4 (MK), and a signed original 1948 Chesterfield Advertising display with lengthy inscription from the Barry Halper Collection.

Other top lots include Mickey Mantle’s Texas driver’s license, a Pope Benedict XVI signed baseball, a Nolan Ryan 1986 Astros game-worn jersey (SGC Superior), George Mikan’s glasses from DePaul Coach Ray Meyer, Luka Doncic “back-to-back triple doubles” Mavericks game-worn sneakers, and Shaquille O’Neal’s 18,000th career point game-used basketball from 2002.

The auction also boasts a 1996 Lisa Leslie Team USA signed game-worn uniform matched to four games, a 1998 Lisa Leslie NBA Weekend Los Angeles Sparks game-worn jersey matched to an image with Kobe Bryant, a 2008 Sheryl Swoopes Seattle Storm WNBA game-worn uniform, a 2007-08 Maya Moore UCONN Huskie game-worn uniform, a 2006 Seimone Augustus WNBA debut Minnesota Lynx signed game-worn jersey, and a 1960s Mary Parsons All-American Red Heads complete game-worn uniform.

Bidding ends June 29, 2024 at 10 PM ET. Bid, view and register for the auction at lelands.com.
