Graded NM-MT+ 8.5 by BGS, with signature graded "10" by Beckett. A super-premium Rookie Card. This is the first "Exquisite Collection" Rookie Card of LeBron James that was ever produced! The importance of this point – to the collecting industry and to LeBron's legions of devoted enthusiasts – simply cannot be overstated. In addition, this card is the highly desirable card that is serial numbered "23/99," matching James' jersey number.

James' list of stellar accomplishments continues to lengthen. He's a four-time NBA champion (2012, 2013, 2016, 2020) and a two-time Olympic gold medalist (2008, 2012). Four-time MVP (2009, 2010, 2012, 2013). Four-time NBA Finals MVP (2012, 2013, 2016, 2020). Those are merely the tip of the iceberg, which has also grown to outsized dimensions on the basis of memorable playoff performances. Few would disagree that watching this incredible player in action, and following the career of such an extraordinary hardcourt warrior, represents a rare gift that's been bestowed upon this generation. And only the most superlative, high-level commemoratives – on the order of the sublime and majestic piece here offered – could possibly constitute fitting tribute to LeBron James' singular greatness.

The 17-time NBA All-Star has penned a vivid blue ink signature on the obverse of this fantastic collectible. Its cardfront presentation also incorporates an exceptional, James-worn multi-colored, jersey patch relic. The card's BGS condition report: Centering: 9.5, Corners: 8, Edges: 9, Surface: 9.5. A congratulatory statement on the card's back attests to the authenticity of the signature and genuineness of the patch component, and serves as Upper Deck's COA. The limited-edition piece is serial-numbered "23/99." This is a special and unique item, essentially a "1 of 1," through the fact that this is the only entry from its series to bear a serial number matching the superstar's jersey number, "23." Near Mint to Mint-plus condition.
