NBA Top Shot, a new form of digital collectibles, is taking the sports and investing worlds by storm. The platform has done an astounding $180 million in sales since launching in 2019. In October 2020 it opened up its beta to all fans and has since exploded with worldwide interest.

It certainly appeals to fans who like the potential of lottery payouts — draw a low-ranked serialized number “moment” in a pack, and you’ll be able to sell that on NBA Top Shot’s marketplace for a crazy profit overnight. In the last few months, we’ve seen major dollars spent on these moments, and below we’re tracking the biggest sales to date.

1: 2019-20 LeBron James “Cosmic” Dunk — $208,000

  • Serial number: #29 of 49
  • Current owner: jesse
  • Date sold: February 22, 2021

Blowing past the previous sale record of $100,000, on Monday user “jesse” forked over $208K for a rare LeBron moment. What’s interesting is that this moment isn’t tied to an important serial number in collecting: No. 1 moments and moments that match the player’s jersey numbers are the most valued. That means those moments in this collection are now valued incredibly high.

It was sold by user “Sparky_24,” who drew it from a pack. Not a bad profit.

T2: 2019-20 Zion Williamson “Holo MMXX” Block — $100,000

  • Serial number: #1 of 50 (jersey number)
  • Current owner: jerlevine
  • Date sold: January 25, 2021

Seen in the featured image of this post, this Zion Williamson No. 1 “Holo MMXX” moment went for a smooth $100K to Jeremy Levine, a big name in the sports speculation world. Levine recently founded Underdog Sports, a new platform for daily and season-long fantasy. Prior to that he was the founder and CEO of Draft, a fantasy app.

The moment was sold by user “MatthewWoodsi,” and it was the first sale since being drawn from the Holo pack. It’s especially valuable since it’s a No. 1 serial number moment, which also happens to be Zion’s jersey number.

T2: 2019-20 LeBron James “From the Top” Block — $100,000

  • Serial number: #1 of 59
  • Current owner: spicy_seal2934
  • Date sold: January 25, 2021

On the same day as the Zion sale, this LeBron “From the Top” moment went for $100K, which at the time was the max a moment could be sold for in the NBA Top Shot marketplace. As of February 2021, that has been expanded to $250,000, and it’s likely only a matter of time before we have a new top sale.

Like the Zion moment, this was the first sale of this LeBron collectible: User “j1mmy” drew it from a pack.

T2: 2019-20 LeBron James “Throwdowns” Dunk — $100,000

  • Serial number: #1 of 275
  • Current owner: greekfreak
  • Date sold: February 21, 2021

Prior to Sunday’s big sale, only two moments had ever hit the $100K mark. User “greekfreak” made it a third with his purchase of this No. 1 serial number LeBron moment. There are more moments available in this release compared to the other LeBrons on this list, but the top number still went for an exorbitant price.

The moment was purchased from user “Pranked,” who is the biggest seller on the early NBA Top Shot marketplace. To date, he’s done over $4 million in sales and has spent $348K in purchases.

5: 2019-20 LeBron James “Holo MMXX” Dunk — $99,999

  • Serial number: #12 of 32
  • Current owner: flamboyant_mangosteens7204
  • Date sold: February 4, 2021

This moment was also sold by “Pranked,” who drew it from a pack.

T6: 2020-21 Steph Curry “Deck the Hoops” Handles — $85,000

  • Serial number: #1 of 40
  • Current owner: DeepThreePointer
  • Date sold: February 22, 2021

Aptly-named user “DeepThreePointer” purchased the most expensive Steph moment to date, grabbing this No. 1 serial number moment for $85K. He bought it from user “Alex,” who drew it from a pack.

T6: 2019-20 Giannis Antetokounmpo “Holo MMXX” Dunk — $85,000

  • Serial number: #34 of 50 (jersey number)
  • Current owner: Libruary
  • Date sold: February 21, 2021

Given the start of Giannis’ career, it was a little surprising to see other players’ moments surpass his in sales. User “Libruary” agreed, purchasing this jersey number moment for $85,000 from “Pranked,” who drew it from a pack.

8: 2019-20 LeBron James “From the Top” Dunk — $80,000

  • Serial number: #35 of 59
  • Current owner: easyaces
  • Date sold: February 22, 2021

Apparently drawing a LeBron “From the Top” moment early on was the equivalent of winning the lottery. Another went for $80K, this time to user “easyaces,” who bought it from “j1mmy,” who drew it from a pack.

9: 2019-20 LeBron James “From the Top” Block — $78,000

  • Serial number: #23 of 59 (jersey number)
  • Current owner: vegasfinds777
  • Date sold: January 26, 2021

No. 1 serial number moments are always incredibly valuable, but right up there is a player’s jersey number — that’s why this LeBron moment is valued so high.

Again, this moment was also sold by “Pranked,” who drew it from a pack.

10: 2019-20 LeBron James “From the Top” Dunk — $71,455

  • Serial number: #1 of 59
  • Current owner: andy8052
  • Date sold: January 23, 2021

LeBron’s “From the Top” No. 1 serial number block moment went for $100K on January 25, but two days earlier the No. 1 dunk moment also sold for a huge price on the market.

This moment was sold by “BasketballMikey,” who drew it from a pack.
