2003-2004 Carmelo Anthony Denver Nuggets Game-Used Rookie Road Jersey (March 9, 2004, 26-Point Game)
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $1,292.50
Denver Nuggets road jersey worn by Carmelo Anthony during his 2003-2004 rookie season. Graded a perfect A10 by MEARS, with only one other graded at this level. The blue dry-fit jersey is lettered "Denver" across the front and features the number "15" on the front and reverse. "Anthony" is lettered on the reverse above the number. All letters and numerals are appliquéd in tricolor tackle twill (white/blue/gold), with the exception of the reverse letters, which are in solid white. Situated on the left front tail are a “Reebok” label, a “52” size tag, a “2003-2004” year tag, and a flag tag that reads “4 inch L.B.” An NBA patch is located on the left breast and the Nuggets team logo appears at the base of the collar. Anthony has signed the jersey in black marker (grading "10") on the reverse numeral "1." Original and unaltered, the jersey displays wear throughout. This jersey was originally obtained from Beckett Authentic, the exclusive provider of Carmelo Anthony game-used apparel, and is accompanied by a COA and corresponding hologram label (affixed to the reverse) from the company. Ideally, the COA specifies that this jersey was worn by Anthony in a game against the Washington Wizards on March 9, 2004, in which he scored twenty-six points. That performance was instrumental in Anthony's later being named NBA Western Conference Player of the Week on March 15th. Anthony played in all eighty-two games during his rookie season, averaging 21 points per game. Today, he remains one of the NBA's top young stars. Graded A10 by MEARS (5 point base grade plus 5 points for provenance). This is one of thirteen Carmelo Anthony Denver Nuggets jerseys listed in the MEARS census and one of only two graded A10. LOAs from Dave Bushing & Troy Kinunen/MEARS and James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,292.50
