    To "air" is divine

    1986 Fleer Michael Jordan #57 PSA Gem Mint 10. Who better than Michael Jordan to mark a tectonic shift in the sports collectibles hobby? Not since Babe Ruth had a single athlete so completely commanded the public consciousness, stepping beyond the white lines of the playing field to leading roles on Madison Avenue and Hollywood.

    Here he supplies his high-flying, tongue-wagging technique to a trading card that will likely reign for eternity as the last great "regular issue" model. Today only short-print inserts can challenge the fifty-seventh card of the 1986 Fleer Basketball issue for value. None is more widely coveted. Every subsequent major issue has drowned value and demand in oceans of supply. The Jordan rookie is the end of an era.

    No example is finer than this one, earning every point of PSA's Gem Mint 10 rating. The full-bleed format is notoriously susceptible to wear, but not a hint is to be found here. Centering, colors, registration? All perfect. With top-tier Mickey Mantle rookies trading for ever-increasing six-figure prices, one can only imagine what the future holds in store for this beauty.
