Former US President Barack Obama’s high school basketball jersey was sold for $192,000 and that is a new World Record for a high school jersey sold at auction.

The price broke the previous record set by LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers, whose 2002 St. Vincent-St. Mary’s jersey was sold for $187,500 in 2019.

In his birth state of Hawaii, Obama was a basketball player. While at Punahou School, a private college prep institution in Honolulu, he helped lead the team to a state basketball championship in 1979.
