If you were at Jay-Z’s first concert at the Barclays Center, the new home of the relocated Brooklyn Nets, on Sept. 28, you witnessed the revealing of the Nets’ new uniform. The rapper, real name Shawn Carter who’s a part owner of the Nets, rocked a black No. 4 jersey with Brooklyn in white lettering on the front and his surname on the back.
The Brooklyn native’s jersey won’t ever be worn in an NBA game, but you can get your hands on a limited edition autographed ‘Carter 4’ for a price.

Ten authenticated Carter jerseys – five home and five road – with the rapper’s signature on them were put up for auction on Wednesday (10/17) at auctions.NBA.com, and will end on Oct. 31. One hundred ‘Carter’ jerseys were originally produced for each of Jigga’s eight Barclays Center shows.
The autographs are on the size tag of each jersey and read ‘Peace Jay Z.’
All of the proceeds will benefit the Shawn Carter Foundation, which has given more than $1.4 million in scholarship awards to financially strapped students since 2003.
