Press Release: LeBron James Super-Collector Opens High-End Online Shop with a Twist

Most LeBron James card collectors can only dream of having an LBJ 2003-04 Exquisite Collection rookie card. For super-collector Eric Bitz, owner of, this dream is more than a reality. He actually owns six of them, and his website is one of the only places in the world you will find this many showcased, let alone available for purchase or trade.


Bitz had a vision for a site where collectors could not only sell or entertain best offers for their cards, but also a place to offer trades and proudly display their most treasured items. According to Eric, he mapped it out like this:

"I envision my site as a smaller, privately owned high-end shop where there is a collection of choice, rare cards. I also wanted to tailor the site to list cards more in a way collectors might show their collections. Most collectors have cards they definitely want to sell, some they only want to trade with an assigned value, some for trade with no specific value, then a handful of cards they couldn't let go of, but want others to enjoy as well. While the goal of the site is to sell and trade, I also wanted to create a place that collectors could come to see really unique and rare cards."

What makes different from a place like eBay is that they only deal in high-end cards, and the items are exhibited in the most prestigious, almost museum-like manner. You will find some of the rarest and hard-to-find cards across several sports at Buy Nice Cards. Looking for a 2000 Contenders Tom Brady Championship Ticket Rookie Autograph, or have you ever even seen a 2011 Bowman Chrome Bryce Harper Orange Refractor Autograph?

For the baseball prospect fans out there you will find a wide variety of the hottest Chrome Refractor autographs of some big modern names, including Kris Bryant, Carlos Correa, and Michael Conforto. NBA collectors are not overlooked as may be one of the only places online you have a chance to acquire some of the hottest Stephen Curry Rookie cards available. The 2009-10 Stephen Curry National Treasures Rookie Logoman Patch Autograph is such a ridiculous card, it is hard to put a value on it, which is why you can only propose a trade for the card!

While modern is more plentiful, the hobby releases of previous decades are also covered. For the '80s and vintage collectors, you will discover several 1986-87 Fleer Michael Jordan rookie cards, and probably one of the most iconic and highly sought-after baseball cards of all time: the 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle.

Visiting is literally like walking into a high-end sports card museum, but with the added benefit of being able to buy, make offers, or even propose trades for some of the rarest, most valuable cards in existence. His new shop is a fun place to visit, and something to tell your friends about. Currently, only Eric's cards are available on this unique platform, but he has it in his business plan to eventually open up these great features to other collectors as well.

If you have a premium collection you want to get more exposure for, contact and they will help you explore different options for getting your prized possessions the attention they deserve.

  1. Now that it’s come to light that Eric owns at least two trimmed Exquisite Lebron rookies (and potentially had a direct role in the trimming) it certainly dims his hobby light.
