    With a notarized letter of provenance from James' uncle

    2003 LeBron James Game Worn McDonald's All-American Uniform. It has been the premier showcase for high school basketball talent for nearly four decades, with past MVP winners including Alonzo Mourning, Shaquille O'Neal, Kevin Garnett and Dwight Howard. But in 2003, all eyes were upon the hometown hero during the Cleveland, Ohio affair, an eighteen-year old phenom from St. Vincent-St. Mary High School named LeBron James. And, as expected, he would join that star-studded MVP brotherhood, scoring twenty-seven points with seven assists and seven rebounds in the 122-107 victory for the East, thrilling the crowd of 18,728 at Gund Arena. It would be his final amateur game in the State of Ohio, selected as the first pick in the 2003 NBA draft just three months later.

    "He's as dominant a player I've seen since Oscar Robertson," said legendary former UCLA coach John Wooden, the McDonald's game's chairman remarked to a journalist after the MVP award presentation.

    Arguably the most significant game used uniform ever to enter the collecting community from James' amateur career, this ensemble was gifted to James' uncle Terry Jones, whose notarized letter of provenance is included.

    The white jersey reverses the digits that James has worn to distinction as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers, with yellow and blue tackle twill reporting, "McDonalds 32 All-American" on the chest, and "James 32" on verso beneath an American flag patch. Golden arches adorn the collar, with "Reebok [size] 52" labeling in the tail anchoring a "+4 length" flap tag. Matching "Reebok" label in tail sprouts three flap tags: "44, +3 inseam, +2 rise." Wear is appropriate for a single game's use.

    While the hobby has long been drawn to relics predating a legend's ascension to the professional ranks, LeBron James' status as the most heralded high school athlete in the history of American sports adds unique significance here. As a uniform worn in the most important and most watched contest of that time, this is an offering of extraordinary collecting appeal. Notarized letter of provenance from uncle of LeBron James. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
