Today is a deep dive into two LeBron James limited run Autograph cards:

  • Lebron James 2003 Ultimate Collection /250 BGS 9.5 – IPOs 27th April at 8pm EST on Collectable
  • LeBron James 2003 SP Authentic Signatures #LJA BGS 10 – IPOs 28th April at noon EST on Otis

What is the Lebron James 2003 Ultimate Collection /250 BGS 9.5?

This is a limited run /250 autograph card from LeBron James’s rookie year. Graded BGS 9.5, it’s the most common grade.

There are three Black 10 cards, which is more than usual, and the 17 BGS 10s is a bit higher than you’d expect as well.

Its subgrades are 10,9.5, 9.5, and 9.0, so right in the middle of BGS 9.5.

The card IPOs with Collectable at 8pm EST 27th April 2021 for $181k with $82,500 retained equity (45.6%)

Growth Outlook and Future Catalysts

LeBron cards have plateaued, but you’ve got to think his value has staying power.

Asset Liquidity

This will have a roughly 90 day lockup period then will trade daily.

Platform Risk – Collectable

Intangibles

Retained equity is nearly 50% here, so you won’t have any say over a buyout should it come.

What is the LeBron James 2003 SP Authentic Signatures #LJA BGS 10?

This is a limited run autograph card from LeBron James’s rookie year. Graded BGS 10, it’s only one subgrade (corners at 9.5) away from Black status.

The card IPOs with Otis at noon EST 28th April 2021 for $63,200 with no retained equity.

This one won’t have any direct comps, so I wouldn’t expect it to trade to more than 50% its inferred value on Otis.
