Wemby’s birthday Spurs jersey sold for top dollar.

SAN ANTONIO — When San Antonio Spurs’ Victor Wembanyama turned 20 on Jan. 4, 2024, he scored 27 points and recorded nine rebounds against the Bucks in San Antonio in a loss.

And the jersey he wore that night sold for a lot at auction.

The Spurs jersey he wore on his birthday fetched $120,000 at a recent Sotheby’s auction. It was the top-selling item in Sotheby’s lot and shattered the pre-sale estimates of $30,000-$50,000.

This wasn’t the only Wemby jersey to sell at auction for top dollar.

His Spurs debut white Association jersey sold at Sotheby’s auction for $762,000. According to Sports Collectors Daily, it was the highest price paid for any NBA rookie debut jersey and ranks among the top current-era NBA jerseys ever sold at auction. 

Wembanyama collectibles are in demand.

Fans are scooping up his new Funko POP! figurines, and recently, a one-of-one card was pulled during a card box break.
