It seems the market has always demonstrated an insatiable desire for rookie cards, particularly those of sports’ greatest icons. With Michael Jordan’s retirement now firmly in our rear view mirrors, the focus on Jordan’s 1986 Fleer Rookie cards has escalated, as have values, at an unprecedented rate. Without question, Jordan’s rookie card towers above all inaugural issues since 1970, in terms of both actual value and long-term potential. For those who have not made this most important acquisition, we strongly urge you to consider this GEM MINT 10. Condition is everything with the Jordan rookie. For the NBA, Jordan was the right player at the right time. After the league’s popularity had collapsed during the late 1960’s and the decade of 1970’s it took Julius Erving to unify the NBA and ABA, then Bird and Magic to complete the NBA’s revival. With the league again on firm footing, it needed the ultimate marquee player. That player was Michael Jordan. Dedicated. Dynamic. Charismatic. Relentlessly competitive. Charming. And comfortable with the media. Jordan won the hearts of America. All America. The nation, and the NBA in particular, finally had something it had lacked, a superstar athlete, the best player in the history of the league, a black player, that white America embraced, adored, and worshipped without regard to race. Jordan’s run through the greatest era in NBA history is well documented. Greats such as Barkley, Drexler, Malone and Stockton, Patrick Ewing and many more were denied championship rings because of Jordan’s sheer dominance in leading the Bulls to 6 NBA Championships in 8 years. Even more impressive was Jordan’s dominance as a part of the original Dream Team that simply took the Barcelona Olympics by storm. No one on the planet could touch Jordan at that time. No one. Jordan’s rookie cards serves also as a reminder of the period when sports cards were developing in the 1980’s. Markets were changing, consumer dynamics were changing and the industry was in many ways in its modern era infancy. So take a moment. Examine this absolutely perfect Jordan rookie. Take it home as a reminder of the NBA’s greatest era and greatest star. This card should be the most valuable rookie offering of its era. Its value will continue to escalate as Jordan’s legend grows and endures over the coming decades. This card is the Babe Ruth rookie card of basketball. In this case, reverence is deserved.
