LeBron James X-Fractor Rookie #44/150
Virtually every sports analyst predicted that LeBron James would be one of the greats, and those revelations came when he was just a junior from Akron, Ohio, leading his St. Vincent-St. Mary's Fighting Irish to multiple titles. James was selected first overall in the 2003 NBA Draft by his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers. LeBron immediately wowed fans with superior athleticism and ability, quickly earning 2004 NBA Rookie of the Year honors at only 19. With King James leading the Cavaliers, the team got progressively better with each passing year, ultimately losing the Eastern Conference finals to the Orlando Magic in 2009. That year, James captured his first of four NBA MVP Awards. Once a free agent in 2010, LeBron chose to "take my talents to South Beach and join the Miami Heat." Miami captured back-to-back NBA Championships in 2012 and 2013 with LeBron earning Finals MVP in both. He is the only player in history to lead three different franchises to NBA titles (MIA – 2012, 2013; CLE – 2016; LAL – 2020). He is a 17-time NBA All-Star winning MVP honors three times, is a four-time MVP ('09, '10, '12, 13), and has five times been named to the NBA All-Defensive First Team. Offered here is 2003-04 Bowman Chrome X-Fractor #123 LeBron James (44/150) card graded Pristine 10 by BGS. The striking rookie-blue color and reflective silver checkered features surrounding his image burst from the card spotlighting the forward clad in his cherry red Cavaliers Road jersey on the court. Virtually Pristine in every aspect the Subgrades are as follows: Centering 10; Edges 10; Corners 10; & Surface 9.5. This remarkable example of quite possibly the future "greatest NBA player of all time" is breathtakingly perfect with vibrant color, unblemished surfaces and pack-fresh borders is unquestionably the most spectacular LeBron James cards we have ever auctioned. With a BGS 10 Pristine grade, this extraordinary example is one of only five X-Fractors to achieve the ultimate BGS Pristine grade level with no Black Labels in existence!
