The Most Expensive Athletes on Cameo

Looking for a holiday gift that’ll make a splash? Boardroom has the biggest athlete names on Cameo, including the most expensive.

It’s holiday shopping season, and with it comes a slew of sales, letters to the fat guy up north, and that never-ending quest to find exactly the right gift for that family member who’s impossible to buy for. There’s also that irresistible urge to do all your shopping from your couch within arms reach of those Thanksgiving leftovers.

A Cameo from your friend or relative’s favorite athlete could be the right move. Everyone loves to hear from their heroes, and from the buyer’s perspective, it’s a name to cross off the gift list with just a few clicks.

Those who have used Cameo before know the deal. The requestor finds the athlete, artist, or public figure who they want to record a message for their friend, fills out a simple request form, and waits for that figure to make the video. Prices vary, and from the athlete’s angle, that means a Cameo could run you anywhere from $1 to $1,000.

So let’s say you have someone in your life who really, really wants a custom video from their favorite athlete. And let’s say that athlete is a superstar. It’ll cost you, but hey — maybe it’s worth it! Here are the most expensive athletes currently on Cameo, both overall and by sport.

NOTE: This is not a promoted post; the author just really likes Cameo and once received a video from Bobby Valentine in which he explained how he invented the wrap.

List current as of Nov. 22, 2023.
