Premier Modern Era Investment Piece

**Auction #10, Round 2** Here it is, one of the most important modern era rookie cards in existence and held within an impossible BGS 9.5 holder. This gold parallel of the iconic '03 Ultimate Collection LeBron James rookie card is limited to just 23 copies created, as one could tell by the hand written serial number on the front surface. The card features a young LeBron James, fresh out of high-school in his #1 draft pick uniform of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Pack fresh throughout with perfect alignment and a virtually flawless periphery (rare for the fragile card stock). The surfaces can only be described as faultless with zero scuffs or other imperfections present. A micro touch to the extreme lower right corner is all that accounts for the some what harsh '9' sub-grade. And finally, the autograph is pristine and perfectly penned in blue ink on the card itself. Very seldom is this card seen on the open market as nearly all copies are held within private investment portfolios, and rightfully so as elite 'King James' rookie cards like this only continue to rise in value. How long before the Fine Art community takes stock on the trends in trading cards? What will become of an investment piece like this when the trading card market elevates to awareness among traditional markets? The investment piece offered here is incomparably important to the market and sets a tone from which all others are measured. Investors and strategists are dubbing the upcoming NBA season 'LeBron's Revenge' which surely means an MVP type performance and a playoff birth for the Lakers. LeBron James is the center of professional sports and is widely considered an immortal much like Michael Jordan, Tom Brady, Tiger Woods, Lionel Messi and Babe Ruth. In conclusion, we absolutely love this critically important rookie card and recommend it for the finest portfolio. Please see the video highlight for more details on this investment piece.
