Whether his landmark 1986 Fleer or 1985 Star cards, Michael Jordan Rookie cards remain in high demand.
Michael Jordan Rookie Card Value:
His Gem Mint condition Fleer rookie card is now worth in excess of $500,000. The 86 Fleer Jordan 57 card isn’t rare, although excellent condition copies now command prices over $5K. (see the latest sales figures)
But beware, the counterfeit Jordan rookies just keep getting better and better, so we’d advise going for a graded copy.
PSA now grades all Star basketball cards; thus, if looking for Jordan’s Star 1985 #101 rookie card, it must either be raw or be graded by Beckett or PSA.
Initially, PSA stopped grading Star basketball cards due to the proliferation of counterfeit cards. Thus, be VERY careful if buying one raw.
