Since writing about authenticating Michael Jordan’s 1986 Fleer rookie card, I’ve been inundated with inquiries.
When I offered up my services to anyone in need of help, I figured I might get a few responses.
But when I say inundated, I mean I have been INUNDATED…multiple requests per week, often multiple times a day.
Thus, it’s clear there is a TON of demand for Michael Jordan’s rookie card.
But, the problem I’ve found, is that many collector’s are getting scammed out of lots of money.
So it’s time for a follow-up.
I will REPEAT that the Michael Jordan 1986 Fleer rookie card is the most counterfeited card in the hobby.
So, my first recommendation to those who write me is to find a graded Jordan Rookie card, graded by either PSA, SGC or BGS.
Yet as I know many of you are the adventurous type, I write this article with hopes that we all can be more educated on the topic, and that the wide variety of fake Jordan cards are on display for the masses.
In this piece, I am posting many of the fake images that I’ve received, while helping to explain some of the differences between the fakes and the real card.
Some are REALLY bad counterfeits and it’s super easy to figure out.
But some are quite good and it’s hard for even me to tell.
I hope this helps everyone in their quest in securing a Jordan rookie card.Read More...
