Over the weekend, Goldin Auctions netted a record-setting $33 million USD single sports memorabilia auction, which included the two 1986 Michael Jordan rookie cards. What pushed the auction to greater heights was the National Treasures Anthony Davis NBA Logoman Rookie Patch Autograph card, which sold for over $1 million USD. At $1,045,500 USD the card joins a small but illustrious group of trading cards that have reached a seven-figure selling price.
The outstanding piece depicts NBA Champion Anthony Davis’s sensational career so far. As the first overall pick of his draft class, and a member of the 2020 Los Angeles Lakers NBA Championship team, the 27-year-old continues to rack up accolades on accolades. Davis is also a seven-time NBA All-Star select, holds the 2017 All-Star MVP Award, as well as an Olympic Gold medal and NCAA Champion. Only mid-career, Davis is expected to be a player to watch throughout the basketball organization and beyond.
The limited-edition, One of One Davis rookie card is graded MINT 9 by BGS with the signature is graded a 10 by Beckett. The “Logoman” NBA patch dominating the right side of the card is taken from a worn, Davis jersey. On the left, is the athlete’s autograph in large, confident blue ink. The signature includes Davis’s jersey-number inscription, “23”, making this card and signage truly unique. Panini America Inc. is stated on the back of the card, speaking to its authenticity and genuineness.
