Default How Do You Spot a Fake LeBron James Rookie Card

I sell mostly vintage sports cards. When it comes to more modern cards, I am still learning my way around.
I recently had a consignor send me a LeBron James 2003 Topps Rookie Card.

I have read that there have been quite a few reprints circulating around. So, I am trying to determine whether I have the real deal here.
It is also a graded card. It is graded by a company called GEM Grading Inc. I know that their reputation is not good. This puts more doubt in my mind regarding this card.

I included the scan of the front and back of this card. I know its tough to tell by a scan but what should I be looking for to determine whether this is Authentic or not. Don't make any judgement just because it has been graded by GEM.

I am reluctant to list this card because of my concerns.

What are your thoughts? If you think that it is fake, please tell me why.
