Hey thrifters! I hope you’re all doing well and kicking @$$ at the thrift stores and on eBay!
Today, I just wanted to share a quick tip that has been making me – and a lot of other sellers, for that matter – some serious cash lately and that’s the return of the self-proclaimed “King”, LeBron James, back to Cleveland to once again play for hometown team, the Cavaliers.
As many of you know, I’m a Laker guy and I’m not really a fan of Lebron. However, I am a fan of making money, and there’s no doubt that he has some of the most passionate fans that will go to great lengths to show their support.
It’s funny because the same fans that are on eBay right now and making these high-ticket purchases that I’m going to show you are actually the same fans who were ridiculing him when he decided to leave four years ago to play with the Miami Heat.
There were scathing letters being written and jersey’s being burned during that time. Now, I want to remind you that these jersey’s aren’t cheap and it goes to show just how upset his fans were.
Fast forward to 2014 and it seems that LeBron and his fans have let bygones be bygones and everything is copacetic again. This guy even dug up a LeBron jersey he burned 4 years ago and started to wear it again.
So What Does this Mean for Resellers?
Well, if Lebron items were good sellers before, they’re practically on fire right now!
The funny thing is that those fans who ended up donating their old LeBron shoes and Cavaliers jerseys to Goodwill, Savers, and Salvation Army when he left 4 years ago are probably kicking themselves in the butt right now because those same jerseys are worth some decent money on eBay right now.
If you come across any Lebron shoes and (especially) his old Cleveland Jerseys then I would HIGHLY recommend that you scoop them up right now.
Here’s some recent Lebron jersey auctions that ended on eBay, followed by some of my recent sales. They’re all in used condition similar to what you would find at the thrift stores:

Don’t forget to check out my Reseller Guide if you need help identifying Lebron’s sneakers at your local thrift stores. These shoes are probably just waiting to be scooped up!
I actually found another pair of his sneakers and another youth jersey during my trip to Salvation Army yesterday so I can’t wait to get them listed.
Good luck and I hope you found a whole collection of Lebron gear during your next visit!
