We are in the golden age of sports cards, some of which sell for millions of dollars. While not as popular as some baseball cards, there is also a large market for basketball gear. According to our research, at least 26 NBA seven-figure cards have been sold.

Most of them relate to Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Stephen Curry. In fact, one with the Warriors superstar tops the list of the most expensive sales ever.

The 2003-04 Upper Deck LeBron James Exquisite Collection Rookie Patch signature is the best-selling card in our list of 12. Other players that collectors invest in are Giannis Antetokounmpo and Luka Doncic. The trading card industry is booming and still growing, and we are sure there will be new record sales soon.

For now, this is the all-time ranking:
