The King Collection @ Rally

Post image 1

Rally announced in their newsletter today that they have acquired 10 game-worn Lebron James jerseys, and will be adding them to the platform at $10/share ($500K market cap). Apparently, this is the first drop from the 'Collection', TBD what else they'll have on offer. Some decent games among the 10 jerseys- all from his Lakers era. Given the increased interest around game-worn, and the fact that Lebron's career is winding down, a $500K market cap at IPO doesn't seem crazy. But everything depends, in part, on how long Rally intends to hold the jerseys. If they sit on them for a while, my assumption is they'll be worth way more than $500K.

I don't imagine I'll be able to own any LBJ jerseys myself, so this might be my best chance of getting into high-level game-worn.

At $10/share, I'm going to try and grab a few shares. Though Rally sells out so damn quick, we'll see if I'm fast enough to get in.

Ant Edwards Game Worn Jersey Update

Find out more about the Sotheby's NBA Auctions sales, including all auction times, lots and locations.

Jersey bought from Sothebys for $20K, already getting offers for $100K.
Was discovered to be the first jersey he wore with the #5 before the auction closed. Crazy how much photo matching is altering the landscape. Sothebys missed out on crazy upside by not identifying key moments the jersey was worn.

Sotheby's NBA Auction Jerseys

Post image 1

I'm fascinated by what Sotheby's is doing with their NBA Auctions- loads of game-worn jerseys available for sale with BIN prices. The prices depend on how big the player is, and what they did in the game(s) the jersey was worn in, but you can find jerseys for as low as $750. You could argue a Richaun Holmes jersey from a game he scored 2pts and grabbed 2 boards isn't worth even $750, but for someone who wants to get into the game-worn space, wants to take a flier on a young player in the hopes they become a star, or just is a fan of a lesser-known guy, the 'low' cost of entry might be enticing. I'm not in the market and think there's risk that the supply will be too great given so many of these were 1-game jerseys, but it's intriguing.

Anyone buying?

MLB Players 'Wear' Cards in Game

Fun move by PSA to team with Bobby Whitt Jr and Corbin Carroll and have the players 'wear' their cards in game, sort of creating the first ever "game-worn card." PSA then graded the cards... and no surprise, they didn't gem. One of Carroll's cards got a PSA 1, the other a PSA 3, and Whitt's received a PSA 4 and a PSA 2. They added some cool descriptions to the cards too. Will these end up hitting the market? Pretty unique cards. Kudos to PSA for the idea.
