Black millionaire: Richest athlete endorsements of all time

lebron Miguel-CabreraWhen baseball prodigy Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers signed his astronomical contract over the off-season for a reported $300 million over 10 years, you could hear the collective groans from players of other sports that have cap limits. No voice was louder than NBA megastar LeBron James, who wailed to anyone in earshot that he was jealous that Major League Basketball has no limits to what it can pay players.

Take a look at the highest contract endorsements of all time. You’ll be surprised at who is near the top of this list.
