There’s a new record for the highest price paid for a Michael Jordan basketball card.

A 2003-04 Upper Deck Ultimate Collection autographed Jordan Logoman card sold for $2.928 million at collectibles marketplace Goldin on Saturday. The card was numbered 1-of-1, per ESPN’s Dan Hajducky.

Logoman cards feature the NBA logo patch cut from game-used jerseys and are usually limited to just one copy. According to Hajducky, the card sold on Saturday is the first Jordan Logoman to feature a Chicago Bulls jersey. It also received an “Authentic” grade and a perfect 10 on-card autograph from card grader PSA.

Ken Goldin, CEO and founder of Goldin, highlighted the significance of the card, which hasn’t been available at public action until Saturday. Hajducky noted that the card hadn’t been publicly discovered until 2022.

“Words can simply not express the historical significance and the importance of this card,” Goldin said. “It is, without a doubt, the single best and the single most valuable Michael Jordan card — and the most sought-after — that has ever been produced.”

While the card was purchased at a lofty price, it’s far from the most expensive sports card ever sold. Mickey Mantle’s 1952 Topps card sold for $12.6 million in 2022, taking the crown. Jordan’s game-worn jersey from Game 1 of the 1998 Finals holds the record for the most expensive sports memorabilia of all time after it was sold for $10.1 million in 2022.
