LeBron James Rookie Card Considered 'Holy Grail of Modern Trading Cards'
LeBron James's rookie card is worth a lot of money. We mean, a lot of money. One lucky person had a LeBron James, autographed rookie card with a patch from a LeBron worn jersey. You won't believe how much it is worth.
Sports trading cards gain value over time, so it's unusual for a new item to spark much fervor. Yet a one-of-a-kind LeBron James rookie card is expected to sell at auction for major money.
Described as "the most valuable and coveted LeBron James card in the world," bidding on the 2003-04 Upper Deck Ultimate Collection is already up to $65,000 with less than 12 days remaining. The auction site estimates a final winning price of $200,000 or more.
The collectible is autographed by James and features a game-worn jersey patch. It's more valuable than the jersey James donned during Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals.
