Victor Wembanyama’s NBA Debut Jersey Breaks Record

Victor Wembanyama's NBA Debut Jersey Breaks Record

Victor Welbanyama, a rookie of the San Antonio Spurs, is causing a stir in the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the market for sports memorabilia. An auction just took place in which the game-worn jersey Wembanyama wore during his first NBA game went for an unbelievable amount of money.


Wembanyama entered the NBA with sky-high expectations after being selected with the first overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft. However, he has been able to live up to those expectations thus far. Similarly, the price of the jersey he wore for his debut with the Spurs on October 25 smashed the estimate that Sotheby’s had placed on it.


The price estimate range provided on the site was from 80,000 to 120,000 dollars. The ultimate sales price was significantly more than that by several orders of magnitude. According to Front Office Sports, the sale price of Wembanyama’s rookie debut jersey puts it in the record books as the record holder for the most expensive rookie jersey ever sold.


If that is how much Wembanyama’s rookie jersey is selling for right now, there is no way to predict the market if the 19-year-old reaches his full potential.


The beginning of Wembanyama’s professional career is shaping to be quite successful thus far. Wembanyama has played in 14 games with 18.6 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 2.5 assists on average per game. On Wednesday night, he and the Spurs will compete against the Los Angeles Clippers to break a winless record that is now nine games long.
