Jared Bleznick offer $1 million in cash to the person who can provide james lebron triple logoman basketball card – a one-time sports card that Bleznick says will be worth millions of dollars in years to come.

The former poker pro’s passion for sports cards led him to buy Legacy Sports Cards with a business partner and another highstakes poker player, Tom Marchesein 2019.

Bleznick’s Insta Video Reveals He’s Looking For The Lebron Basketball Card – the only one of its kind in the world – and he thinks it’s is “7 digits”.

“Your servant, the backer, is paying $1 million in cash,” Bleznick says, and the hunt is well and truly on for the card that represents LeBron James in triple format – wearing the Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat and LA Lakers jerseys that spanned his NBA career.

To take advantage of the million dollar offer, however, you’ll need to find the one-of-a-kind card first, and it only exists in a Panini Flawless 2020-2021 basketball box.

Just a week ago these boxes were selling for $10,000but news of Bleznick’s bounty, and others apparently offering much more, drove the price above $15,000.


If you’re not a sports memorabilia collector or fan, you’ll probably be surprised to learn that this is far from the maximum ever paid for a collectible basketball card.

This title apparently belongs to the signed Luka Doncic cardwhich sold for $4.6 million and is featured prominently in Bleznick’s Insta video. It sold out last year and came from a box of Panini National Treasures Basketball Trading Cards 2018-19.

It was first sold for $400,000which shows the potential investment value and explains the $1 million bounty placed on Lebron’s head by Bleznick.

A 1909 Honus Wagner T206 baseball cardsold last August for $6.6 millionholds the overall record for a sports card.

Poker players are apparently very serious about collecting sports cards, with Bleznick and Marchese setting up a Legacy Sports Cards booth at least last year at the WSOP.

If his estimate of the future value of the LeBron card is correct, however, someone might just need to win the Main Event to afford it.

It’s unlikely to be Jared Bleznick himself, with the odds of winning the Main Event likely equivalent to finding the LeBron James card in your CocoPops.

Although Bleznick still plays poker, and has indeed won a American Poker Open title last summer, as well as several cashes at the 2021 WSOP, he regularly claims to have lost his passion for the game.

Many poker fans will remember him for the ban he received at the 2016 WSOP (in which he placed 16th in the ME) for tearing cards at a PLO event. The ban was later overturned after Phil Hellmuth used his influence to persuade officials to give Bleznick another chance.
