When you find out that one of the NBA's All-Time greats has an upcoming SuperStar son, as a card collector, how can you not want to chase a few cards of his? I guess in most circles you would call this prospecting.

Bronny, the son of LeBron James is already playing college ball and on his trail to the pros despite having a scary cardiac arrest back in July of 2023 which hopefully won't play any further role in his life. So far, Bronny is averaging 5.7 points a game for USC. Not mind-blowing numbers, but you can see some of the plays he makes are pro ready ones.

When I found out Bronny had some early cards in products, I wanted to get a jump on a few. Just in case.

Not only was he included in the 2023 Topps Chrome McDonalds All-American Basketball, but he is also in Bowman Chrome U with his very 1st Bowman.
So, I wanted to add one to my collection. Right now they are going pretty cheap.

So cheap that I was able to add this Purple Shimmer

And insert for all under $8 on eBay with some of my gift card.

You read that right.....under $8. If this wasn't a steal, I am not sure what one is.

I am hoping that Bronny will be as good as LeBron, but there is also a lot of pressure when your dad is who he is. A lot of kids of superstars like this struggle to make their own name as they will always be so and so's son until they do.

I hope to add a few more to this collection as time goes on. I also do have the Mcdonald's base card that I got in a trade. Would be fun to add a refractor of it to or any other parallel run to this.

Let me know your thoughts on Bronny in comments.
