    2001-02 Lebron James Game Worn High School Jersey. Lebron James was the most heralded high school basketball player in the history of the sport. When he announced his intentions to bypass college and go straight to the N.B.A., he was annointed the next savior of the league. These were lofty expectations and a heavy burden for a kid who had yet to attend his senior prom. James is one of the few teenage phenoms who has actually lived up to the hype. In just his second season, Lebron is a legitimate M.V.P. candidate, a fixture on the nightly highlight shows, and has Cleveland poised to be a mainstay in the Eastern Conference playoff picture.

    This example of Lebron's high school jersey dates to 2001-2002, his junior year of high school, and was retrieved directly from St. Vincent/St. Mary's by jersey aficionado Lou Lampson. Most of the Lebron high school jerseys in the marketplace were manufactured by Adidas, who stepped in and sponsored the team once James' exploits were being recounted nightly on Sportscenter. What most do not know, is that St. Vincent/St. Mary's only donned the Adidas duds when they were playing on television. For all their other games, they wore jerseys from On Sports. While most of the games from James' senior year were broadcast, several nationally on ESPN, his junior year saw only a few televised contests. As a result, this jersey was worn many more times than the Adidas jerseys that surface occasionally, as evidenced by softness and thread wear on the neck and underarm seams, as well numeral wavering and puckering that would indicate this specimen was Lebron's regular game jersey, with the Adidas versions being special occasion models .

    Already among the N.B.A. elite, we can only speculate as to the heights young Lebron will ascend to before his career is over. The sky is the limit for James, and we feel the same is true for this jersey. Included is a lengthy five-page LOA from Lou Lampson as well as several photo matches. LOA from Dan Knoll, Dave Bushing & Lou Lampson/ SCD Authentic.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
