    2003-04 Upper Deck SP Authentic Extra Limited Rookie Authentics Basketball Prototype Uncut Sheet- LeBron James 1/1! NOTE: What appears to be a scratch in the sheet is actually a printing error which is likely why this sheet was pulled and never circulated.

    Offered is a 2003-04 SP Authentic LeBron James 1/1 SP Extra Limited Sheet with full 2003-04 NBA Rookie Class. Purchased from the family of an ex-Upper Deck Executive from California who passed away. The sheet is believed to be the LeBron James 1/1 prototype sheet for executives as a final proof of the product going to production. The first known, high end Upper Deck product sheet, from LeBron's rookie year, ever to be offered up for auction. There were three levels of Rookie Authentics Autographs in 2003-04 SP Authentic: Base Level #/500 (White Background), SP Limited #/50 (White Background), SP Extra Limited 1/1 (Black Background). Top 7 Picks/Cards of the SP Extra Limited Parallel version are Level 1 - and are the 1/1 version from the set while the remaining are Level 2 and the #/25 version. The 1/1s include LeBron James, Darko Milicic, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade, Jarvis Hayes, Mickael Pietrus.

    Believed to be the only other 1/1 LeBron James printed of the SP Extra Limited parallel. Fully printed sheet to every spec (including beautiful foil in the lettering and accents) and detail of the 1/1 cards that made it into packs other than the number stamp and autographs. The cards are fully printed on both sides. Original markings from the factory are present on the front and back of the sheet, along with the Carlsbad, CA address. It also includes the process control patches (color blocks) that are used to help control the quality of individual colors used by a printer, so that the tints and hues are correct and consistent. Simply one of the coolest pieces you will ever see of LeBron James and this historic rookie class. Truly a piece of history.
