Check out what we think our the top 3 rookies cards for the King Lebron James.
2003-2004 Upper Deck Exquisite autographed patch
If money was no object and you were a huge Lebron fan, this card is a no brainer.
An autograph with a patch from his rookie year? Yes please.
And it has a low print run.
2003 SP Authentic autographed rookie card #148 (/500)
While it won’t set you back six figures, this one does still have a fairly hefty price tag for regular collectors.
Still the SP Authentic brand is nice and the on-card autograph of King James is pretty sweet too.
To top it off, it’s numbered to just 500 – rare enough to make it valuable but not so much that the card is inaccessible.
2003-2004 Bowman Chrome rookie card #123
There’s no autograph or patch but that makes this one affordable and an easy one to add to your collection.
The Bowman Chrome brand is solid and the picture of a smiling James with the basketball to his side is a nice touch.
A nicely graded card even without the autograph still retains good value.
