Description:
1997/98 Metal Universe "Precious Metal Gems" Michael Jordan Red #23 BGS Gem Mint 9.5. So you want to talk about Jordan rarity? More examples of his essential 1985-86 Fleer rookie have graded PSA Gem Mint 10 (140, to be exact) than the entire population of the offered lot. Numbered 87 of 100, this dream card for legions of MJ devotees already has a history of auction fireworks, with six different suitors placing five-figure bids on a PSA Mint 9 specimen that closed on eBay on April 12, 2012. This example, bearing a 9.5 rating from the toughest modern card grader of them all, figures to up the ante considerably. Much like the man it celebrates, this card will establish its new owner as the top dog in the Jordan card market, as the BGS 9.5 rating is both unsurpassed and unequalled. Exceedingly rare in any state, and a bona fide 1-of-1 as offered.

Centering - 10, Edges - 9, Corners - 9.5, Surface - 9.5.
