At the heart of every collector in 2003 was the hope of pulling the ultra-rare Lebron James Rookie Patch Auto Parallel numbered to 23 copies, PWCC said in an Instagram post.With so few ever becoming available and demand increasing by the day, this card is quickly becoming the crown jewel of all sports card investing.

Monday's sale broke the previous record of $4.6 million that was established two months earlier at the private sale of one-of a-kind 2018-19 Panini National Treasures Autograph Logoman Luka Doncic Card.

The sale of LeBronLeBron James, while breaking a record for the most expensive basketball card to buy the record for the most expensive sports card ever sold, tied the record for most expensive basketball card ever sold.It shares this title with a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle card it was sold in January.
