$2.4 million spend is lower than record fee for sports trading card
It had been predicted that the sale could break the all-time record for a sports trading card, which is a Honus Wagner baseball card that cost $6.6 million in 2021.
Panini’s 2020-21 Flawless release included five Triple Logoman cards, consisting of three-star player patches, though James is the only card that features three player patches.
The other four cards include patches from Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kevin Durant, and Stephen Curry; Draymond Green, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson; Anthony Edwards, LaMelo Ball and Tyrese Haliburton, and Jayson Tatum, Luka Doncic and Zion Williamson.
