Michael Jordan Rookie 1986 FLEER (PSA) 7 Sharp Corners / Bold Coloring.
This is the most recognizable basketball card and the most important modern card from any sport in the entire hobby. It’s hard to believe that this NBA legend was actually cut from his high school team as a sophomore, but it’s true. Just a few years later, Michael Jordan would make the game-winning basket in the NCAA Finals for North Carolina. The legend of Air Jordan was just beginning. Jordan won six NBA titles, eight scoring titles, five regular-season MVPs, six Finals MVPs, three All-Star Game MVPs and one Defensive Player of the Year award. In fact, Jordan was named to the All-Defensive First Team nine times, a record. This 14-time All-Star and former NBA Rookie of the Year (1985) scored 32,292 points and averaged 30.1 points per game in his career. While Jordan did make a brief comeback as a member of the Washington Wizards, he will always be remembered as the man who led the Chicago Bulls to glory. This card, the most heavily counterfeited card in the hobby, is susceptible to chipping and edge wear due to the multi-colored borders.
