Lot 1986: 1985-86 Star Michael Jordan #117 GAI 9.5 Gem Mint 1st Graded
A full two years before Fleer issued its Michael Jordan "rookie" the Star Company released the young Jordan's true first and second year cards. Offered is the finest example extant of Jordan's true second year card, graded an impossible GAI 9.5, the first card to attain such rarified air. Issued in team set form, this card is notoriously difficult due to its deep red borders and centering issues. However the offered example is a lesson in basketball card perfection, much like the subject it depicts. This authentic and original gem is a must for any serious collection of Michael Jordan basketball cards.
