This blog contains pictures of my Michael Jordan card collection, I have just re-started this blog experience and am trying to get more Jordan followers. I'm hoping the most interesting part of the blog will be the daily (if my budget allows) maildays that will detail the cards/stickers/etc. that I received on that day. As can be noticed in the first few maildays I have not purchased as many mainstream cards as usual because those cards are so easily available (well most of them) and can be had at any time. In addition to the mailday updates my eBay MJ card price guide is available for free as well. These prices reflect the maximum value and average value for Jordan cards over the last couple years. I collect all of the cards listed in the price guide and many others but only from 1984-1998. If you are interested in buying/selling Jordan cards feel free to email me using the link below. Thanks again and enjoy the blog!

1993-94 Fleer Ultra Scoring Kings Error

I recently purchased a lot of Michael Jordan cards on eBay and in this lot were several $5-$20 inserts and a 1993-94 Ultra Scoring Kings card. I purchased the whole lot for $95 so I was pleased with the deal. I originally purchased the lot to re-sell on eBay to help fund my Jordan collection. After receiving the cards I noticed the Scoring Kings card looked odd. After looking more closely it appeared as if the foil that generally covers the entire card was incorrect over the left half of the card and had a silhouette of a different player.  I knew there was no way I could sell this card as I had never seen anything like it.

Background

I grew up with Michael Jordan as my hero in the early 90's and convinced my dad that he should broaden his baseball collection to include basketball cards. Over the course of the 90's I obtained nearly every Jordan base card through opening boxes and purchased many of his inserts. My favorite purchase was buying both the 1992-93 Fleer Team Leader and Total D cards at one hobby shop for $25 and $10 respectively. My collecting diminished during the 1996-97 season as I entered high school and had better things to do with my time or so I thought at the time. My junior year of college my card collecting began again as I strictly wanted to collect all of Michael Jordan cards from 1986-87 to 1995-96. I scoured eBay to find the best deals on Jordan cards and did pretty well for myself picking up more inserts and the 1987-88 Fleer card. As for any college kid though, money and girls were always a problem (I was single my junior year of college). My second round of collecting didn't begin until after I graduated and started a job with 3M. Since 2007 my goal has been to collect every Jordan card from 1984-85 to 1995-96 and have since added all of the Finest Refractors and many other rare Jordan cards including some of the Star cards. I have used Beckett's online price guide as my personal checklist and hope to one day obtain all of Jordan's cards from these years. I'm hoping this blog will allow those interested to take the ride with me and hopefully let others discuss their Jordan collections as well.

Welcome

I am starting this blog to provide information for those interested in collecting Michael Jordan sports cards. My initial plan is to cover Michael Jordan cards from 1984-85 to 1995-96, from the Star company cards in his early years through the Topps Stars and SPx cards made in 1996. I have compiled eBay selling prices on many of these items for your benefit, I will post pictures of items in my collection and provide updates of my new purchases. I look forward to this opportunity.
