No one’s praying harder for a gold medal run for the US basketball team than Upper Deck, which has released LeBron and Kobe vinyl figures on the eve of the Summer Games.
As team USA winds up its exhibition schedule, the Upper Deck Company has released release a pair of limited-edition USAB Series 1 All-Star Vinyl figures of two standouts from this year’s Team USA Basketball squad: Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.
“The timing couldn’t be better,” said Dave Sanders, Upper Deck’s director of Toys and Collectibles. “With Kobe and LeBron trying to lead the USA team back to Olympic Gold, we’re happy to release these two sought-after All-Star Vinyl figures right when people are readying themselves to watch history take place.”
Bryant and James, both under contract to Upper Deck, are pictured in their official USA Basketball uniforms. Bryant, sporting No. 10, was brought to ASV life by renowned artist Chris Brunner; while James, wearing No. 6, was illustrated by Eric Tscherne.
The individual figures, which stand approximately 12” tall, are both limited to 500 and available for $74.99 each. They will go on sale to ASV Platinum Club members at 9:08 a.m. (PT) this morning with any remaining quantities becoming available to the general public the following day at UpperDeckStore.com.
