He’s in the Hall of Fame now, long retired from the NBA. Still, collectors and fans who remember him still flock to eBay to find Michael Jordan basketball cards.
Jordan had a long career and for more than a dozen years he was the focal point of virtually every basketball card set ever made.
The most popular basketball card of all-time is the Jordan rookie card, with high grade examples soaring in value on an annual basis. They’re not rare, but the demand remains smaller than the supply. Three or four were found in each box of 1986-87 Fleer.
His “true” rookie card (one created in his rookie season) from the 1984-85 Star Company set is also highly sought after by collectors.
His endorsement contract with Upper Deck have put thousands of signed Jordan cards into packs and they remain among the most sought after trading cards ever made. In fact, he’s still signing today, even though Upper Deck lost its NBA license several years ago. It’s those autographed Jordan insert cards from the 90s and early 2000s that typically generate the most interest.
Thousands of collectors specialize in collecting Michael Jordan so expect some competition, but there are plenty of great cards out there to chase. Thanks to a partnership with eBay, here’s an automatically updated, live list of the current ‘most watched’ Jordan cards for auction on eBay.
