A one-off LeBron James Triple Logoman trading card is going up for auction this week and could break a record for the most expensive sports card ever sold, according to Goldin Auctions.
“The card is a one-of-one, is completely unique and experts think it could challenge the all-time record paid for any trading card,” Ken Goldin, executive chairman and founder of Goldin Auctions, told CNN.
The card features game-used patches from each of the NBA teams that James has played for: the Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers.
Bidding starts at $500,000 but Goldin said the card could break the record of $6.6 million, set last year with the sale of a Honus Wagner baseball card.
There are about 50 Honus Wagner cards in existence, Goldin told CNN, but the LeBron James Triple Logoman card is the only one of its kind.
ManningCast who? CC Sabathia says he had the alternate-broadcast gig down first, before brothers Peyton and Eli generated buzz throughout the fall for the secondary viewing option on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football.”
“It was my idea first,” the retired New York Yankees pitcher told USA TODAY Sports. “We were the original, 100 percent. ESPN, the Mannings, they did a good job with it. But yeah, we definitely started that at MLB Network.”
Debating who invented the alternate, casual sports broadcast (and even setting parameters for such a conversation) is a fool’s errand. The point is that on Monday, Sabathia will return to MLB Network’s “Clubhouse Edition” for the second season of non-traditional game telecasts when the New York Mets face the San Diego Padres (9:30 p.m. ET).
A guy who released a song called “All I Want for Christmas Is You” five years before MARIAH CAREY is suing her for $20 million.
There’s nothing similar about the songs, though, so it’s not clear if he’s got a case.
His name is Andy Stone . . . although he’s better known as Vince Vance from country-pop band Vince Vance and the Valiants.
The group released a song called “All I Want for Christmas Is You” back in 1989, five years before Mariah did it.
