The mesmerizing attributes of the most universally prized basketball card on the planet are properly realized, at their finest, in this beyond-spectacular collectible. Presented is the 1986/87 Fleer Rookie Card of Michael Jordan. Here, the Hall of Famer is revealed in his first mainstream, gum card appearance.

"His Airness" has earned international notoriety and acclaim far beyond the measure of his other-worldly hardcourt brilliance. Quite literally one of the most famous and beloved human beings on the planet, the gentlemanly superstar's legions of fans are unabashedly fervent in their devotion to this once-in-a-lifetime figure. Michael Jordan started his public career as a high-scoring rookie sensation – with an incomparable first step, acrobatic drives and passionate dunks – and rapidly gathered what seemed to be the inevitable championships and awards. Beyond his work as a player, Jordan excelled in an equally competitive realm as team owner/executive. Throughout, the cultural icon remained accessible and humble, and he built a legacy that continues to inspire the globalization of the NBA. It is fitting that Jordan's presence be commemorated by only a highest-quality trading card, like the one here offered. This treasure confers immediate importance upon any assembly that includes it, and the card carries long-term pride of ownership as a powerful, additional benefit.

Graded GEM MT 10 by PSA. This supreme Michael Jordan collectible has been validated at the highest grade acknowledged by PSA, a distinction that less than two percent of all the examples ever submitted are qualified to claim. The reasons for the card's placement at such an elite status are readily apparent. This memento of the Chicago Bulls legend imbues physical superiority in every respect. Its corners, centering and print quality are profound in their integrity, and a shimmering layer of original surface gloss beautifully accents the card's unimprovable aesthetic. A legitimate, paragon showpiece from a sensitive and desirable release, in truly marvelous Gem Mint condition.

A new world's-record price for this Jordan Rookie Card in PSA GEM MT 10, at nearly $215,000, was established in Goldin Auctions' recently concluded December 2020 Holiday Auction (Lot #131). Widely recognized for his cards' investment appeal as well as his own, singular presence, Michael Jordan will doubtless continue to post record-breaking sale prices for his premier trading cards. This is particularly true with the growing trend of overseas money – reflecting international interest in Jordan's world-wide fame – increasingly gravitating toward his investment-caliber items. The piece offered here is a very special, high-end Jordan commemorative, standing among the most valuable and sought-after modern basketball rookie cards in the industry. Goldin Auctions is proud to have assumed the lead as the hobby's primary venue for the sale or purchase of this important collectible.
