What do you gift the person who could get anything he wants? Well Wooter Apparel stepped up its birthday present game by giving boxing star Floyd Mayweather a legendary basketball card featuring two of the greatest in history: Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.

It was the case of one G.O.A.T. receiving a card with two G.O.A.T.s on it.

Wooter CEO and one of the founders Alex Aleksandrovski along with the so-called Wooter Boys caught up with Mayweather in Miami and presented him with a 2008 Topps Chrome Kobe Bryant card for his 44th birthday. The card, which also includes LeBron James, received a perfect grade of 10 by the card grading company PSA, and other copies of this card fetched nearly 14,000 dollars recently on eBay.

“I know you got into collectibles, hopefully this expands the collection,” said one of the Wooter Boys on a published video of the meet-up and hand-over.

“This s**t is f**king crazy,” a member of Mayweather’s group was heard saying.

“My guy got me a gift,” Mayweather said. “The magic is unbelievable … I mean, he’s always gave me great gifts. Here’s another gift. I wanna say thank you. I appreciate you and the world should appreciate his work.”

This is not the first time Wooter Apparel has given the boxing legend a special present for his birthday. The company has designed and created gear to give Mayweather over the last three years.

Wooter Apparel, which has existed since 2014 and customizes jerseys, uniforms and apparel across all sports, has also outfitted Floyd in some of the charity basketball games he’s hosted over the last three years – including a black jersey which included a tribute logo to Kobe Bryant.

The Kobe Bryant card was specially created by Topps in 2008 with the hope of Bryant and James meeting up in the NBA Finals with their Lakers and Cavaliers, respectively. The meeting of the two future Hall of Famers did not end up happening though as James and Cleveland lost to the Orlando Magic in the Eastern Conference Finals.

A total of 541 copies of the card have been graded by PSA with only 197 of them receiving a perfect 10 of 10 grade. The highest price tag thus far is 13,700 dollars on February 9, 2021. The rise in values of sports cards has helped the card jump from 3,000 dollars in its first auction of the year. On October 22, 2020, a PSA 10 copy sold for 600 dollars – an amazing jump of 2180 percent in less than four months. Just for understanding: another jump of 2180 percent would mean the same card is worth more than 312,000 dollars by June.

Mayweather said in the video that he plans on having LeBron James sign the card, saying: “I gotta have him sign it.”

That would only increase the value of the card that much more.

One thing is certain: Wooter Apparel has given Mayweather a birthday present he won’t soon forgot.
