An Ethereum NFT trading card based on NBA rookie star Victor Wembanyama sold for over $110,000 Thursday, apparently topping the record sale for one of his physical trading cards.

Released by Sorare NBA, an officially licensed fantasy basketball game, the single-edition “Unique” digital trading card of San Antonio Spurs player Wembanyama—this year’s first pick in the NBA draft—ultimately sold for 61.182 ETH, or about $110,120 at the time that the auction concluded.

According to media reports, the top sale for a physical Victor Wembanyama trading card came in August at a price of $67,333 via auction platform Goldin, which included the buyer’s premium. That was for a “pre-rookie” card ahead of his official NBA debut. Sorare’s NFT auction came just days after “Wemby” started racking up numbers on the Spurs.

A curated batch of Bored Ape Yacht Club-centric Ethereum NFTs from Yuga Labs is set to be auctioned off at Sotheby’s on June 18, providing a white-gloved test of the staying power of Ape-themed assets in the fine art community.

The lot of collectibles includes an NFT profile picture (PFP) from the Bored Ape Yacht Club, adorned in a leather work vest and “sushi chef headband.” Known as Ape #8552, one of the NFT’s main selling points is its former, now-bankrupt owner—aside from the Ape’s solid-gold fur, of course.

Once an asset held by Three Arrows Capital (3AC), a crypto hedge fund wiped out amid the widespread market tumult of 2022, the NFT is accompanied by other pieces of digital art. Those include two, gold-furred NFTs from Yuga’s Mutant Ape Yacht Club collection and a depiction of a dog from Yuga’s Bored Ape Kennel Club line.
