    King James lives up to the hype...

    2003 Upper Deck Ultimate Collection LeBron James (Autograph) #127 BGS NM-MT+ 8.5, Auto 9 - #'d 175/250. He entered the public consciousness as the most heralded high school phenom in the history of the sport. "He's as dominant a player I've seen since Oscar Robertson," said legendary former UCLA coach John Wooden. By the time he was thirty years old, LeBron had already been a household name for half of his life. The first pick in the 2003 NBA draft exceeded even the rosiest of expectations, claiming four regular season and two Finals MVP Awards (to date). King James would fall just short of his dreams of a Heat three-peat but he holds a place in any spirited debate regarding who the greatest of all time might be.

    The "Ultimate Collection" lived up to the name. The set circulated in boxes with 4 packs per box and 4 cards per pack. Every card from this series was a limited edition. The base set was limited to 750 cards each. Inserts and parallels featured autographs, single, dual or triple jersey patch cards, all varying limited editions. The rookie class is impressive but the undisputed top debut is LeBron James. Offered is the autographed version of card #127 featuring the NBA legend. Graded PSA NM-MT+ 8.5, Auto 9, subgrades: Centering 9.5, Corners 9.5, Edges 9, Surface 7.5. Limited edition #175/250.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $50,000 - up.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
