NBA collectibles and vintage cards sell for a lot of money. They almost always remain profitable, as there are only a limited number of classic memorabilia, and their rarity keeps going higher and higher.

Michael Jordan is one of the biggest stars in all of NBA. He is considered the GOAT, and in line with that belief, all collectibles in his name sell for a might blowing price. In this particular case, a ticket stub from his debut match has sold on a record-breaking price.

The ticket stub is of the highest-grade. The card holds a EX-MT 6 from Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA). The card was sold for a whopping $264,000 at an auction, making it the most expensive sports collectible to be auctioned ever.

The sale was carried out by Huggins & Scott Auctions. It including a 15% buyer’s premium. However, even if the premium was excluded, the previous record would have stood broken.

The record was formerly held for the sale of a ticket stub from Game 3 of the 1903. It was sold for $175,000. Jordan’s debut was made on Oct. 26, 1984. Jordan made his debut with the Bulls, and scored a victory against Washington Bullets with a score of 109-93.
