LeBron James‘ first-ever #6 Lakers jersey — which he endured the opening night of the 2021-22 NBA season — is striking the auction block … and might cost a lots of dough, TMZ Sports has actually found out.
An associate with SCP Auctions informs us the gold Nike “Icon” Edition jersey James sported versus the Golden State Warriors on October 19, 2021, is up for grabs … and it’s a huge offer, considering it’s the very first time he rocked #6 for L.A., rather of his Cleveland-age #23.
The bottom left corner of the piece of history programs LeBron’s jersey size (54) and the date of the video game, 10-19-21, handwritten on the tag.
The jersey has actually gone through numerous layers of authentication — it was participated in the NBA and MeiGray Game-Worn Jersey Authentication Program — and was photo matched to the first and second half of the contest versus the Warriors.
Remember, James changed from #23 to #6 in June 2021 … simply 4 months prior to the NBA season began. LeBron formerly used the #6 when he was with the Miami Heat for 4 seasons (2010-2014).
“It’s always been a part of me, to be honest,” James stated when inquired about the switch. “Six has a lot of meaning to me, from my family and numbers and things of that nature to what I believe in and things of that sort, but my mentality doesn’t change.”
King James ended up the night versus the Warriors with a game-high 34 indicate accompany 11 rebounds and 5 helps — however the Dubs ruined LeBron’s night, beating the Lakers, 121-114.
The auction ends on February 4. Good luck, bidders!
