My LeBron James Collection. It's Random. But Fun!

I figure this is as good a time as any to build one up. I seriously doubt his cards will ever be cheaper.

We'll start with the best LeBron I have, which I acquired a while back in a trade with Charles from Hoopography, before the Finals.


I absolutely love everything about this card. The magnificent patch, the low serial-numbering. Plus, the patch is so patchy it's popping out of the patch. Good. Stuff.

Everything else LeBron I have came from recent-ish (not that recent, really) eBay purchases.

03-04 UD Top Prospects. Picked up a pair in a lot. One definitely looks like it would grade out to a Mint 10. But then again, I'm not a professional grader. Neither is available. Unless you want to absolutely wow me.

Two 03-04 UD Hardcourt Floor Relic cards. Pieces of floor LeBron played on way back in his high school days. Gimmicky, but different. A solid price on both, so they seemed like fun adds. I'm sure I'll part with these eventually, either through trade or on the Bay.

A 2003-2004 Upper Deck City Heights LeBron card. Love the early Bron cards. Looks pretty sweet in person - very futuristic, almost 3D in nature, as LBJ jumps out of New York itself to dunk - and it was dirt cheap. So it was an easy purchase.
