Description1984-85 Star Co. Michael Jordan #101 BGS NM-MT 8. The 1986 Fleer Jordan that serves as the most recognizable cardboard of the past half century is widely and properly filed under the header of "rookie," but the offered relic predates that hobby essential, tracking back to the first days of His Airness on an NBA court. There are no professional statistics to be found on the back of this coveted rarity--only Tarheels tallies--and nothing but immortality ahead.
And this isn't just the older sibling of the Jordan rookie family, but a far rarer one to boot. These cards were originally distributed in sealed team bags with the Jordan on top, in a production run believed to have numbered below 5,000. This impressive representation finds itself firmly positioned at the upper end of the grading spectrum. Graded BGS NM-MT 8 with subgrades: Centering 8, Corners 8, Edges 8, Surface 8.
Guide Value or Estimate: $30,000 - 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.
