LeBron James Jersey Cards

Date posted: April 7, 2011

As I have mentioned in previous posts collecting basketball cards should act somewhat as a record of history. The cards in your collection should document your favorite player’s career in - all the more rewarding when you can collect the cards themselves at the time of release!

One aspect of LeBron James’ career that is very easy and rewarding to make a standout part of your collection is the various jerseys that he has worn throughout his basketball career. Not only can you collect cards with images of LeBron wearing these jerseys but it has become very common for card manufacturers to include actual pieces of game used jerseys as part of the card.

Don’t think that adding cards featuring actual game used jersey swatches will cost a fortune either - as you will see they can be very easy to obtain!

LeBron James High School Jersey Cards

As you know LeBron finished high school and entered straight into the NBA in 2003. So there is no college jersey available - having not attended college himself - however we have some nice options available featuring LeBron in his number 23 Saint Vincent - Saint Mary (Irish) high school jersey!

On top of this Upper Deck was able to locate game used high school jerseys to include actual swatches in some of the cards - now that has to be a must have addition to all great LeBron James collections!

Below are three very nice options for adding cards featuring LeBron in his high school jersey to your collection. Here we have the 2003 Saint Vincent - Saint Mary High School card, 2003-04 Upper Deck LeBron’s Diary and the very nice 2003 SP Game Used High School Jersey which includes an actual swatch of a jersey from LeBron’s high school game days.

LeBron James Miami Heat Jersey Cards

In 2010 LeBron James became a free agent and filed the paperwork with the NBA to have his jersey number changed from 23 to 6 out of respect to Michael Jordan. Several teams courted James and he eventually joined the Miami Heat for the 2010-11 season. Obviously a massive part of LeBron’s career, this change should certainly become a showpiece in your collection.
