Video: LeBron vs. Kobe In-Game Autographed Shoes

Upper Deck keeps bringing the game closer.

For collectors of NBA memorabilia, it doesn’t get better than this. Only a handful of dedicated enthusiast’s collections feature game-worn LeBron sneakers, much less with an signature attached. In this video, Director of UD Authenticated Dave Sanders shows exactly why Upper Deck has been at the forefront of bringing you closer to the game for over 20 years. Quite clearly, Upper Deck is as legit as it gets. These sneakers (or Kobe’s for that matter) are not available yet–they’re finishing the patented UD five-step authentication process–but keep checking back at the Upper Deck Store, where they’ll soon appear. They won’t be around for long.

In the meantime, be sure to check more of Upper Deck’s authentic LeBron collectibles. If you like what you see, don’t forget to take a discount for being a SLAMonline reader!

    Pretty cool Video; though I would hate to be the guy who has to carry around Kobe’s sweaty socks.

    I love the caveman-like sub-headline. “Upper Deck keeps bring game closer.” You like shoe. You no like sho, you die. (Grunts)

    I wish the Cavs would stop wearing their throwbacks and GSW throwbacks all the f*cking time.

    good call MeloMan! is dude really that ambidexterous that he does signatures left-handed but shoots jumpers with his right?

    Tight shoes…If I could get a pair I’d pick the Kobe’s because I’m a huge Kobe fan.

    say the right thing or you’ll be filtered. SI is a magazine that covers many sports, and does not do a good job on any of them. It’s just the format. Needs to go like “Life” magazine did, but then again, what would they have in doctor’s office waiting rooms?
