Extremely desirable pair of high-grade rookie cards featuring Larry Bird and Magic Johnson from the very popular 1980-1981 Topps basketball series, each professionally graded by PSA (submitted by REA): NM-MT 8 and EX-MT 6. The offered examples are bright and crisp, with vibrant colors, four sharp corners, and flawless registration. The reverse is also perfectly clean. One example (NM-MT 8) has near-perfect centering, while the other example (EX-MT 6) is centered slightly to the right with a few scattered print marks on the front. These are two outstanding high-grade examples of Larry Bird and Magic Johnson's rookie card, which is the key card from the set, and arguably the most significant basketball card in the hobby. The SMR value for just the PSA NM-MT 8 is $750. Total: 2 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
