As LeBron wins more, that card will take on more significance. And with the lack of new Exquisite cards being made, cards like yours are more sought after. That card is amazing dude, thanks for sharing.

What year is it? 2007-08 Exq?

I agree and it has been HARD to find anything for sale. I mean I have had some people offer but no one with a real sell point as they want more then the market is bringing.

It is an 07-08 and its the first of this year I have so it was extra special ahah

As I get more in I'll post some more but I was just excited to get it today

THANKS GUYS !!!!!

I'm very happy for your happiness! Any card with Lebron + Exquisite = Awesomeness!! Then you add a past legend like Jordan and the card becomes a cool little card to own CONGRATS! Lebron = Active player...

LOL! haha

Haven't you heard, he's got another 6 or 7 coming! This card has pleanty of time to turn more awesome... But seriously though, he WILL win more.

Again, congrats on an amazing pickup. I wouldn't mind a Lebron Exquisite card for my collection. One day.... maybe.

yup, such a classic look. really regret selling mine a few months ago as it was my FIRST MJ Exquisite buy ever and what got me hooked.

to put things into perspective....I bought that card about 3 years ago....for $850 at that point in my collecting life, I was really diversifying my collection and wanted a high end card of all the biggest stars/HOFers across all sports and it as MJ's turn in line lol. I remember looking for a nice MJ Exquisite and scrolling thorough like 3 or 4 pages FILLED with MJ Exq's of ALL years - LL's, # pieces, noble nameplates, scripted swatches, even a few EofE's (all in the $800-$3k range!!!)! I had no clue the difference in them and loved the look the # pices and figured I could kill 2 birds with one stone by getting the dual with 07-08 MJ/LBJ...because there was about THREE of them listed at the same time at that point, all asking around $1k - $1.5k BIN (no BO), I was able to bargain the $1k BIN guy down to an offline deal of $850.

ah, the good ol' days...

unfortunately I didn't get my second MJ Exquisite for about another 8-10 months as I was collecting so much other stuff across all the sports. by that time prices and availability didn't change much, but by 3 months after I got my second MJ Exquisite a 06-07 MJ LL hit $2500 at auction (a good $1k higher than it EVER sold for at that point)...from that point on, the MJ Exquisite market was forever changed and began is ascent towards the moon. Soon after Kobe Exquisites started sky rocketing. LBJ's saw a spike too, but then were pretty stagnant due to "extraneous circumstances," but now are quickly catching up to Kobe et al.

edit: just to clarify, it was not only that 06-07 mj ll sale that sparked the rise, but it was definitely one of the first eyebrow raising sales that got people talking. There were other sales around the same time, one I remember was a 08-09 mj ll that sold close to $3k BIN (to one of our very own here on Blowout )...amongst a couple others...


sorry to go off topic Thor, but looking at your card made me reminisce and got me thinking about a few years ago. Out of ALL the MJ Exquisites on ebay at that time (and believe me, there were A LOT), that is the one I picked and now that you have it in hand, I am sure you can completely understand why! Enjoy the card bro, it is a gem.
