$3,899 for the beauty, which features LeBron in a Notre Dame jersey. He didn’t go there, of course, but he was recruited by them, and I guess Upper Deck needed something to make him fit into the set.

I’ve not done any work to value this card, which is listed at $50k, but at /3 and featuring MJ, LeBron, Kobe, and Magic, it’s a gorgeous piece of art…even at BGS 8.
