Graded GEM MINT 10 by PSA. Exceptionally crisp, super high-grade rookie card of Michael Jordan, arguably the greatest basketball player ever. This is an ultra-high-grade example of the premier modern-day basketball card. The 1986-1987 Fleer basketball issue is extremely condition-sensitive due to its blue flush-to-the-border design. The offered example is pack-fresh with four razor-sharp corners, bright colors, a flawless image, and no chipping to the extreme edges of the condition-sensitive red and blue borders. It is hard to imagine a finer example of this card! Michael Jordan's Fleer rookie card is part of PSA's Top 250 Sportscards in the Hobby set, based on the book Collecting Sports Legends: The Ultimate Hobby Guide, by Joe Orlando, which selects the most significant cards from all the different sports. Examples of premier rookie cards, such as this, in extreme high grades have realized especially strong prices recently. The Fleer Jordan card is one of the cards that is recognizable to collectors of all ages, and as such, is one of the great cardboard collectibles in our hobby. Entirely deserving of its GEM MINT status, this is a spectacular example of the most sought-after modern basketball-card classic in superb GEM MINT condition. Reserve $5,000. Estimate $10,000+.
