    2003 SPx LeBron James (Red Jersey Swatch) #151 BGS Gem Mint 9.5, Auto 10 - #'d 142/750. In the spring of 2003, Michael Jordan, the reigning active king of the court, retired from basketball, and the Cleveland Cavaliers, with the first overall pick in the draft, selected a high school player named LeBron James from Akron, Ohio's St. Vincent - St. Mary's High School. One king had abdicated, and the future monarch, King James, was only 18-years-old. That didn't stop James from averaging 20.9 PPG, with 5.9 APG and 5.5 RPG and winning the Rookie-of-the -Year Award. As his former teammate with the Miami Heat, Shane Battier, noted "He's one of a kind." That one-of-a-kind designation can apply to James' positional versatility, as he can literally play any position on offense and guard any position on defense. He is officially listed as a shooting guard as a rookie and then, in varying years for the next sixteen seasons, played as either a small forward or a power forward. When James joined the Los Angeles Lakers for the 2019-2020 season, he shifted to point guard and led the league in assists (10.2 APG).

    James is the only player in NBA history to have been the Finals MVP for three different NBA franchises (Miami, Cleveland and Los Angeles). He's won four championships, been the NBA MVP four times, the Finals MVP four times, an All-NBA First Team selection a record 13 times, is averaging 27.1 PPG lifetime, and played in 16 All-Star games. As the young fans who thrilled to James' early career begin to advance in their own occupations, and have more disposable income, expect a sharp rise in LeBron James autographed high graded cards to meet future demand. Graded BGS Gem Mint 9.5, with subgrades: Centering 10, Corners 9.5, Edges 10, Surface 9.5, with a Beckett Auto 10. Limited edition #142/750. None have graded higher. Red color game-used jersey swatch.
