Important Modern Investment Piece - "The King"

On the market this month is one of the rarest and desired LeBron James rookie cards in existence. The '03 SP Signature Edition Famous Nicknames card is limited to just twenty-five copies created; far more elusive than LeBron's Exquisite RPA which is limited to 99 copies. Investor's love this card for a variety of reasons however the most appealing aspect of this card is the hand written 'The King' inscription, beautifully penned with a pristine blue ink autograph. The offered Beckett 9.5 easily ranks among the finest copies in existence and represents the highest graded example to be publicly offered in some years. Looking like it was just pulled from a pack, this masterpiece possesses 50-50 centering along with a flawless periphery. All four corners are pin-point sharp and the surfaces appear immaculate and deserving of a higher sub-grade. The origin of the 'King James' nickname is some what unclear however LeBron James has embraced it along with several other highly popularized nicknames. LeBron James is arguably the greatest basketball player of all-time and his world-wide popularity continues to grow with his recent move to Los Angeles. It's likely that the Lakers will be a playoff team this upcoming season with all of the talent surrounding 'King James'. We love the investment future on this critically important, highly rare LeBron James rookie card. A Beckett 9.5 of this card (with worse sub-grades) is currently listed on eBay for a buy it now price of $80,000; we're proud to offer this example to the investment community free of any reserve. We've chosen to further highlight this card via video. Enjoy! One of over 15,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 9th Auction of 2019.
