In 2016, LeBron James accomplished the impossible: He brought Cleveland the city's first championship – in any major sport – in 52 years. James was the unanimous NBA Finals MVP after registering a triple-double in Game 7 and leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to the team's first-ever NBA Championship. He is, undoubtedly, The King.

Presented here is one of the exciting LeBron James cards in the industry. The offered piece is a signed James-worn patch rookie piece from Upper Deck’s 2003/04 "Exquisite Collection" brand.

Upper Deck's "Exquisite Collection" is widely viewed as the most elite, iconic brand in the specialty among top basketball collectors. This LeBron rookie is from 2003-04, which was the first/inaugural year of Exquisite; first-year Exquisite is, by far, the most coveted release, and commands the highest prices. It's important to note that the offered card's year is 2003-04 (or 2003-2004), not the year "2004," which could be misinterpreted as 2004-05. All of LeBron's rookie cards were produced as 2003-04 issues and this is a LeBron rookie that was limited to only 99 examples.

Encapsulated and graded GEM MINT 9.5 by BGS, with signature graded "10" by Beckett. Rookie Card. LeBron James has placed an exceptional, blue ink signature on the obverse of this premium collectible. Its cardfront presentation also incorporates a tri-color letter segment, player-worn jersey patch relic. The card's BGS condition report: Centering: 9.5, Corners: 9, Edges: 9.5, Surface: 10. The limited-edition piece is serial-numbered "02/99." A congratulatory statement from Upper Deck appears on the card's reverse side; this declaration attests to the signature's authenticity, verifies the origin of the card's "patch" component, and serves as the COA for the subject item. This is a stunning and important LeBron James rookie card collectible, reflecting untouched and impeccable Gem Mint condition.
