I get the allure and icon status of Michael Jordan–I loved watching him play when I was a kid. But Bird and Magic were no slouches and I think their rookie card probably deserves some more attention. Let’s not forget that their rookie card also features one Julius ‘Dr J’ Erving! How amazing is it to have a rookie card that features three of the best players of all time?
I think the future is quite bright for the Bird/Magic rookie. I have no idea if there’s another Last Dance effect coming along that will boost the value of this card, but I think for any vintage basketball collectors, this one deserves to be a part of your collection and should be a worthy long-term investment for your card portfolio.
