    Description

    1984-85 Star Co. Michael Jordan #101 Signed Rookie BGS NM-MT+ 8.5, Autograph 10. 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.

    This isn't just the older sibling of the Jordan rookie family, however, 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.

    Though even in that limited population, this representation distinguishes itself both for its elite condition and the presence of a flawless blue sharpie autograph from its cover star, acquired through a 2016 Upper Deck signing hosted at Michael Jordan Flight School Camp. We stress that the spectacular centering found here, rated 9.5, is a rarity for this issue, with only five matching that subgrade on the Beckett population report. Please note that the card has no surface damage, merely a printing flaw under the undisturbed gloss finish (keeping it from a 9.5). Unquestionably one of the most desirable Jordan cards on the planet. COA from UDA.
