    1985 Nike Promo Michael Jordan SGC Pristine 10 - A Gold Label Stunner! Every trading card collector in the world knows that Michael Jordan's famous 1986 Fleer rookie is the hottest market on the planet, but the offered specimen makes that essential commemorative look downright common by comparison. This specimen also has the added appeal of actually dating to Jordan's rookie season, as well as linking him to the sporting goods brand that would command the sneaker market for decades to come.

    We also love the image utilized here, something far more artful than the common in-game photography used in virtually all contemporary sets. Here, His Airness sails toward the hoop against the backdrop of a Chicago skyline in a sunset silhouette. Soon, Jordan himself would be turned to a silhouette, this very image transformed into the iconic "Jumpman" logo. In short, there's a lot of history happening here.

    But when it comes to condition concerns, there are literally none. This is one of just nine representations to achieve the vaunted gold-label "SGC Pristine 10" rating, a step beyond the standard "Gem Mint 10" that was once considered the best of the best. In our opinion, this card should track much more closely to the 1986 Fleer rookie in value, and we wouldn't be surprised if this auction finds it gaining some of that ground.
