    1986 Fleer Sticker Michael Jordan Rookie #8 PSA Gem Mint 10. Many consider Michael Jordan to be the Greatest of All-Time, and his 1986 Fleer rookie card has to be considered the greatest basketball card of all time. As Rich Mueller wrote in Sports Collectors Daily in December of 2020, "Prices for Mint Jordan cards have doubled since 2014. Michael Jordan PSA 9s had to struggle to reach $2,000 each in 2013, but have recently been selling for over $20,000." The insert sticker from that same series was always a good "plan B" but recently has become a gem to be had in its own right. One reason for the rise in value is in the spring of 2020, the documentary film The Last Dance, about the Chicago Bulls and Jordan, was shown to rave reviews and sky-high ratings. Jordan, depicted as obsessed with winning, got results. Within eight years (1991-98), the Jordan Bulls twice won a string of three consecutive NBA titles. On the front of this sticker Jordan is forever driving for the hoop which will cumulate in another gravity defying dunk, just as his cards are seemingly forever rising in value.

    Ask anyone who collects this set and they will confirm that pulling a flawless sticker out of a pack of 1986 Fleer basketball cards is so incredibly difficult. Even if surfaces, corners and colors are perfect there is almost always some amount of wax on the reverse and central portraits are frequently found off-centered . Here, packaging and collectibility combine to make the offered sticker among the most desired of all Jordan early card collectibles. One-third of the PSA population have received qualified grades. Our offered sticker is virtually flawless.

    Graded PSA Gem MT 10. Of the over 14,000 Jordan stickers submitted to PSA, fewer than 1% have graded Gem Mint.
