(LOT 157)
1984-85 Star #101 Michael Jordan BVG 8.5 NM-MT+

MJ!! An awesome card to add to your rookie collection, this 1984-85 Star Michael Jordan BVG 8.5 NM-MT+ is one of the few that has the feared shooter pulling down a rebound. Jordan's scoring prowess from the 3-point line and from the field is still remarkable, but many fans forget that he was also named 1987-88 Defensive Player of the Year, a 9X All-Defensive team member and pulled down 6,672 rebounds with an additional 1,152 boards in the playoffs. Still considered by many as the GOAT, Michael Jordan's legacy goes far beyond his on-court statistics, but rather his contribution to the game and his unrelenting work ethic that puts the Bulls point guard in rarified "Air" that few can achieve.

The offered features the Hall of Famer on his first NBA card as it was technically released prior to his 1986 Fleer "rookie". The 1984-85 Star card lacks any NBA statistics, only UNC stats, as His Airness had yet to be knighted. This rookie card is rarer to boot as it was distributed atop sealed team bags to which a believed fewer than 5,000 were released. The bold red border of this excellently centered, minimally favoring the right edge, Jordan Rookie stands out with a crystal clear image of MJ in action. The reverse centering favors is near perfect, and the pink-hued back remains vibrant and soft with vivid text. Just as any GM would relish a GOAT caliber player to build his franchise around, Michael Jordan's "true" rookie card graded BVG 8.5 NM-MT+ is a fabulous conditioned example for a 1984-85 Star set builder around which to assemble the remaining 203 players.

MIN BID $20,000
