LeBron James broke another record on Saturday night.

A limited-edition 2020-21 Panini Flawless Triple Logoman patch card sold for $2.4 million at a Goldin Auction on Saturday, which marks the highest sale price for a card that was pulled and sold within the same year.

The card features the NBA logo patch from three of his jerseys, one of each from the Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers.

Though the card didn’t set a new overall record — a Honus Wagner T206 card went for $6.6 million last year — the James card is reportedly valued between $3-5 million. Goldin founder and executive chairman Ken Goldin that the “card is the undisputed holy grail of modern cards.”

It was one of five triple logoman cards that were created in the batch, though the James card was the only one to feature just a single player. The others included:

  • Anthony Edwards, LaMelo Ball, Tyrese Haliburton

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry

  • Jayson TatumLuke DoncicZion Williamson

  • Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, Stephen Curry

Plenty of people went hunting for the cards in recent months, too. Rap star Drake bought 14 boxes in March for more than $200,000. (h/t)

Drake, though, didn’t end up the lucky owner. JMo from Backyard Rips found it in May, , and it belonged to three users who purchased a steak in the pull.
