LeBron James jersey sells for record $3.7m
A game-worn jersey of basketball superstar LeBron James sold for $3.7 million at auction on Friday, breaking the previous record for one of his shirts by five times.
The sale coincides with increased interest in the 38-year-old Los Angeles Lakers legend, who is closing in on the NBA's all-time scoring record.
The jersey, which James wore while playing for the Miami Heat in their 2013 NBA finals game seven victories over the San Antonio Spurs, was sold at Sotheby's in New York.
The previous record for a James All-Star jersey worn in 2020 was $630,000.
Michael Jordan's 1998 NBA Finals jersey is currently the most valuable such item, having sold for $10.1 million in September 2022.
Last year, Diego Maradona's "Hand of God" jersey sold for $9.3 million at Sotheby's in London.
James only needs 178 points to break Lakers legend Kareem Abdul-record Jabbar's of 38,387 points, which is one of the most coveted and long-standing in basketball.
On Friday, Sotheby's sold a dress worn by the late Princess Diana for $604,800.
