Tremendous piece of serious sports history from the ever-escalating career of NBA superstar Lebron James - namely, his game-used 2002 St. Vincent–St. Mary High School "Fighting Irish" Vegas gold mesh home jersey.
Everything's absolutely right here, including intensely thorough examination and authentication by expert Brad Gart and Cleveland's Collectibles Palace, which qualifies all aspects of use and provenance. Features all correct tags, styling and identifiers specific to Lebron and these seminal seasons of play, including correct "On Sports [size] XXL" tag sewn to bottom left tail and important embroidered American Flag ribbon worn in remembrance of 9/11. Features James number "23" screened in dark green to front and back, with front also featuring team nickname, "Irish.” Shell exhibits definitive marks and wear consistent with game use, and the jersey is accompanied by the aforementioned letter of provenance from Brad Gart, authorized purchaser and re-seller of Saint Vincent-Saint Mary's merchandise and apparel. His LOA offers three pages of specific details regarding the original acquisition, including evidence he purchased this directly from the school at a used clothing fundraising sale held in its wrestling and baseball practice facility. In addition, an LOA from Collectibles Palace accompanies also certifying the jersey’s game use.
The first of Lebron James’ 16 Sports Illustrated covers, dated February 18, 2002, features James pictured in this precise jersey with a headline reading: "The Chosen One: High School Junior LeBron James would be an NBA lottery pick right now."
