Precious Metal Gems are some of the most iconic parallels in the hobby and becoming more popular by the day. The 1998-99 Metal Universe PMG set was the last of the "original" PMGs and there was a 10-year OMG hiatus up until Skybox released this set in 2008. This SkyBox variant helped establish the market for colored parallels/serial numbered cards and has played a major role in transforming the basketball card hobby today. The offered 2008-09 Skybox Metal Universe Precious Metal Gems Red #4 Kobe Bryant is of Limited Edition (43/50) and has been accurately graded GEM MINT 9.5 by BGS with 10 Centering; 9.5 Corners; 9.5 Edges and 9 Surface. Great high grade memento featuring one of the greatest Hall of Famers to ever play the game. What makes this card even more special is the fact that there are only six others graded GEM MINT 9.5 by Beckett in the entire world. Lelands knows the whereabouts of almost all remaining 9.5's and is confident to say the others won't be coming out any time soon.
