Sports Legends, Rising Stars Draw Big Bids at Goldin’s September Card & Memorabilia Auction

Some of the biggest names in sports history led all bidding during Goldin’s September Card & Memorabilia Auction, which closed last night. A LeBron James Exquisite Rookie Patch Autograph card was the auction headliner, selling for $1.39 million. Meanwhile, a Tom Brady trading card fetched $799,500, while Michael Jordan, and Cristiano Ronaldo cards both eclipsed $300,000. The final sale prices were a reminder of the perpetual enthusiasm that collectible lovers have for hall-of-fame caliber athletes.

At the final gavel strike last night, Goldin, the leading marketplace for trading cards, collectibles and memorabilia, reported that total sales had surpassed $13 million and that the auction also featured several record-breaking items.

“The greats are the greats and no one can ever take that away from them. Jordan, LeBron, Brady, Ronaldo; their legacies will stand the test of time,” said Goldin Auctions Executive Chairman and Founder Ken Goldin. “What’s so fun to watch, though, is which up-and-coming athletes that collectors believe will be the next greats and who will join the pantheon of all-time winners. Between Zion, Mahomes, Baker and LaMelo Ball, the next generation of sports is going to be a hell of a lot of fun to watch.”
