The exact amount of the auction went for $99,800 as the seller also has to pay a comical $3.85 shipping fee.

There were 182 bids on the auction, but the buyer has yet to pay for the card and complete the sale.

Zion Williamson, who has already put together a decorated career, has not even finished his rookie season as the New Orleans Pelicans are set to take part in the NBA’s resumed season on July 30 in Orlando, Florida.

After sweeping the National Player of the Year awards in his only season at Duke, Williamson was the No. 1 overall pick of the Pelicans in the 2019 NBA Draft and injured his knee in the preseason, forcing him to be sidelined until late January.
