Ultimate LeBron James Rookie Cards Gallery, Checklist and Hot List

In the modern NBA card market, few things can match the power of LeBron James rookie cards. The selection is vast and the prices can be intimidating, especially among his rarest editions.

Offering a level of hype that has not been replicated, LeBron James' rookie year was filled with on-court highlights and many, many cards. More than 40 NBA sets had official rookie cards for James. Marking a different time in the hobby, there were also multiple licensed card issuers as there was no exclusive in place at this time.

Once you account for all the possible LeBron James #111 cards in Topps Rookie Matrix, which featured perforated mini cards in groups of three, the total LeBron James rookie card lineup pushes into the 60s.

This large RC selection provides 29 different serial-numbered cards. Four of the numbered cards are signed, and these tend to be some of the top cards to collect.

In addition, he has a pair of extended rookie cards (XRC) in 2002-03 sets. These were issued as redemptions in 2002-03 Topps Finest and 2002-03 Upper Deck Inspirations.

The guide below covers the licensed base rookie cards for LeBron James.
