This is just another instance of a sports card collector hitting the jackpot.
It all went down earlier this week at Jaspy’s Case Breaks card shop in Hermosa Beach, California, which hosted a “live break” of a box of 2019-20 Panini Immaculate Premium Edition cards.
Jaspy’s was hosting an event where collectors could buy rights to cards based on an NBA team and one lucky collector purchased the rights to the Lakers cards for $70. It turned out to the best investment ever.
Via TMZ Sports:
“During Thursday’s live break, Jaspy’s staffer Joe pulled the holy grail from the set … a LeBron game-used jersey card from LBJ’s championship run with the Lake Show!!!
The guys at the shop went crazy — and the collector who was watching virtually quickly realized they had something special!
We spoke with Erick Mitchell — high-end card expert and card broker — who tells us he was getting hit up by clients making big offers (from $50k to $75k) in the hours after the pull!
We’re told the lucky fan hasn’t sold the card yet — instead, he wants to put it up for auction, where experts believe it could fetch more than $100,000!!!”
