Description1980 Topps Bird, Johnson, Erving - Scoring Leaders PSA NM-MT 8. This is an offer that you may not want to refuse. You can seize the opportunity to obtain the rookie card of both Larry Bird and Magic Johnson, together on a perforated three-way mini-card. Bird and Johnson were college rivals even before their NBA rivalry. Bird's Indiana State team squared off against Johnson's Michigan State team for the 1978-79 NCAA Championship. Bird scored 19 points to lead his Sycamores, but Johnson scored 24 points and quarterbacked the Spartans to victory. With the Boston Celtics, Bird initiated a new positional wrinkle – the role of a point forward helping the Celtics to three NBA crowns, and he was a 3-time MVP and a 12-time All-Star. Johnson was also initiating a new role – that of a point guard tall enough to even occasionally play center taking the Los Angeles Lakers to five NBA titles, was a 12-time All-Star, and won three MVPs. Graded PSA NM-MT 8.
Guide Value or Estimate: $8,000 - up.
Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
