How does this Jordan rookie stack up against PSA 9 and 10?
The lion’s share of modern and semi-vintage rookie cards wind up in PSA holders, but not all.
Advertised as the only 98 (gem mint) Michael Jordan rookie card ever graded by Sportscard Guaranty (SGC), one exception has sold on eBay for $8311.
The Jordan rookie drew 40 bids for seller Rose City Sports of Portland, Oregon, a high-end graded card specialist.
The SGC example actually outdistanced PSA 10 versions sold recently.
PSA 10 graded Fleer Jordan rookie cards have been sellling in the $4000-5000 range for the past six months with sixteen public sales known in the past year.
A GAI 9.5 sold for $2025 in October, while an SGC 96 brought only $365 in December of 2006. Two BVG 9.5 Jordan rookies sold in January, both purchased by Rose City. One brought $5500; the other $4199.
