Report: LeBron James Autographed High School Jersey on Sale for $50K

For the low, introductory price of $50,000, you can own what's alleged to be an authentic LeBron James St. Vincent-St. Mary High School jersey.

Freelance hoops writer Scott Rafferty stumbled on the jersey's eBay auction, which claims James wore the jersey during his senior year of high school.

But is it legit?

The auctioneer provides a laundry list of certifications from Vintage Authentics and Upper Deck claiming an authenticated witness saw James sign the jersey.

The seller, City Liquidators Autograph Store, is based in Garden City, New York, and has positive feedback on thousands of sales, so the jersey might just be the genuine article.

Regardless, $50,000 for an autographed James jersey (even one with a UV-protected case!) is a heavy ask. The item has been on sale since 2013, and the seller has declined 12 offers for what it describes as a "unique and incredible collectible."

If you're a huge LeBron fan and have the means, you could pick it up. It is shiny and shimmery, and the signature harkens back to a time before James knew how to do autographs.

So choice.
