If you are a collector of Michael Jordan‘s cards, you might be surprised to know that his rookie cards are the most valuable. This is because rookie cards are more valuable than their non-rookie counterparts, which can be worth thousands of dollars. Here are some of the most valuable Jordan cards released during the junk wax era:
There are very few cards from this era that are valuable, but those that do command high prices are rare and in perfect condition. While these cards may not be the most expensive, a single card with a high grade can easily pay for the entire collection. Luckily, the prices of these cards have been increasing steadily for some time. So, if you want to start your own Michael Jordan collection, these cards are definitely worth checking out.
Some collectors even try to acquire Michael Jordan baseball cards, which are comparatively inexpensive in comparison to his basketball cards. Perhaps the largest reason is the large supply of these cards. This era was a time of “Junk Wax” and many people forgot that Michael Jordan played baseball. It was a big gamble for the basketball superstar, but the results have been well worth it.
Michael Jordan’s cards are still popular today, even after his retirement. Jordan was unstoppable during his playing career and a top player by the time he retired in 2003. His popularity has led to an enormously popular card market, and his cards range from low-end junk wax cards to higher-end inserts and autographs. You should start your collection now and buy as many Jordan cards as you can afford.
If you’re a collector of Michael Jordan basketball cards, the first vintage you should look at is the 1989-1990 Hoops version. It’s worth about four times as much as a Michael Jordan rookie card from the 1986-1987 Fleer rookie card. As Michael Jordan’s popularity continues to grow, his cards will become more valuable. This means that the 1989-1990 Hoops base card will continue to increase in price. The previous Michael Jordan vintage will no longer be affordable for the average collector.
The 1989-1990 Hoops Michael Jordan #200 is not particularly rare, but its quality makes it a more desirable card. Today, you can buy a 1988 Donruss baseball wax box for under $10, and by May 2021 you can buy one for up to $300,000. By then, the 1989-1990 Hoops Michael Jordan cards could reach up to $30 at auction, and they are already considered more collectible than the modern-era basketball cards.
Some of the more popular Jordan rookie cards were refractors. The rarer the grade, the more valuable it will be. Rarer cards can still command a high price, especially if they are rookie patch autographs. Some people think that a high number of “rare” cards means that none of them are actually rare. On the other hand, many players from this era are still active, so their prices will fluctuate based on their current performances and team’s performance.
