second year base cards are the ones i like the most.

2004-05
black diamond
bowman chrome
finest
flair
fleer showcase
sp game used
topps chrome
topps pristine

Topps pristine 2004 is the most underrated base card imo.

When the t.chrome lebron base card hype started i sold the tpristine 04 for a whopping $70

I also like those "mask" lebron base cards with the yellow jersey

Been wondering myself for a while. Luckily it is not that hard. Will definitely check out the ones others mentioned right after I post my favorites.

I've always loved this one (06/07 Bowman)...



... and the blacked out Miami duds.



This is a parallel, but the red borders just work so well.

I love all his Exquisite Base cards. 06/07 is my least favorite, and my favorite is 09/10! It has the classic 03/04 design, and since LeBron was a RC in 03/04 it's nice to have a base card of his with that design. It was also a great way for the brand to come full circle with their last licensed set:

That 04-05 Fleer Showcase,is the bomb. Most of his Topps and Chrome issues have fantastic photos on them.
