Jordan’s used by LeBron James in school Championship might fetch $200,000 in auction
There will soon be an auction for a vintage piece of LeBron James memorabilia.
Heritage Auctions is selling a signed pair of LeBron James’s Jumpman Swift 6 sneakers that he wore at the Ohio High School Division III Championship Game as a freshman for Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary in 1999-2000.
James led the team to a 73-55 victory over Jamestown Greenview, scoring 25 points and grabbing nine rebounds.
Eddie Jackson, who played a paternal role in James’s early upbringing, donated the shoes. Jackson’s mom, Gloria Marie James, was previously involved in a romantic relationship with James’s dad.
A letter of provenance describing Jackson’s sneaker collection is included in the listing. He claimed James had given him the sneakers and signed them after the game.
The successful bidder will not only receive James’ sneakers, but also a game-used photo of him in action against Jamestown and the shoebox they came in.
Under James’ leadership, Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary won three consecutive Ohio state titles. From 2001 to 2003, he won Mr. Basketball in Ohio for three years in a row.
On February 25, bidding will commence, and Heritage Auctions predicts the shoes will fetch at least $200,000.
