John Wall’s First Game Worn Jersey Sells For $7,520

JohnWall Opening NIGHT JERSEY ImageFor the first time ever, fans of all 30 NBA teams have a chance to own game-worn jerseys of the starting five players on their team's opening night roster. It also marks the first time that the new NBA Revolution 30 jerseys, which were introduced across the league this season, have been made available for auction. The latest big name jersey auction to come to a close was that of the NBA's top pick, John Wall of the Washington Wizards.

On November 16th, a blue game-worn Washington Wizards jersey worn by Wall during his first ever NBA game hit the auction block. 28 bids and a little over two weeks later, the auction came to close on December 2nd, with the jersey selling for $7,520.

The jersey was worn during the Wizards 112-83 opening night loss to the Orlando Magic at Amway Center in Orlando. Wall played 35 minutes, scoring 14 points, dishing out 9 assists and grabbing 1 rebound.

The $7,520 final sale price currently ranks Wall third behind LeBron and Kobe's opening night threads. Not surprising considering how hot his basketball cards have been. Below is a look at the Top 5 jersey sales as of the time this article was published.

  1. LeBron James - $14,600
  2. Kobe Bryant - $10,020
  3. John Wall - $7,520
  4. Kevin Durant - $6,600
  5. Dwyane Wade - $6,060.01
