Michael Jordan’s most sought after rookie card is the 1986-87 Fleer Michael Jordan Rookie Card, because this was Michael’s NBA licensed, base set issued rookie card. At the auction this rookie card repeatedly commanded a six figure sales price. According to PSA President, Joe Orlando, “the Jordan rookie is basketball’s equivalent of the 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle”. It is classic, featuring the iconic shot of Jordan soaring to the rim for a one-handed dunk to the patriotic feel of the set’s red, white and blue borders.
Michael Jordan was included by Star Company in its 1984-85 set and was recognized by many card collectors as an official RC. Though there were others who don’t because of the manner it was packed, Star set was packed in team bags instead of packs. Besides it was not broadly distributed as the products of other basketball manufacturers.
Today, 1986-87 Fleer Michael Jordan Rookie Card is also one of the most repeatedly counterfeited cards in history. There have been a large number of fake cards floating around making it difficult for buyers to distinguish which one is genuine.
