Ben:

I had the same idea but last year before the price really spiked on the Star Jordan RC's. I have not been in a good cash position for a while now so couldn't make the pick-ups. As usual, I missed the boat, too late now............

Same thing happened with Giancarlo Stanton RC's a couple of years ago...........

The vintage baseball RC's that I was able to buy like Aaron, Mays, Clemente, etc. netted me zero in return. Go figure, right.............

Yeah.. they have def gone up but I do not see them ever declining as they are RARE. Here is another I picked up. 1984-85 #195.

Definitely scarce, Ben. My biggest fear with them is the fact that the fakes of all Star Co. basketball cards produced were so good that both PSA and SGC have refused to grade these since Day 1. Even though Beckett has taken on the task in recent years, how many fakes do you think have slipped through the cracks and are in holders? My guess is a decent amount and if one of these ends up being a 9.5 Jordan RC and is discovered, the resulting news hitting the market could cause a big downturn in this issue overall IMHO.

Phil, I understand what you are saying as I once had some of the same concerns.

Now, however, I believe there is a huge misconception about potential fakes of Star Company cards. Ck out the link. This is from Steve Taft. He is the #1 expert in Star cards. He trained Beckett, GAI, and SCD. He is the Steve Hart (unopened material), Lew Lipset (preWar cards), Paul Muchinsky (pinbacks), Henry Yee (photographs), Grad/Spence/Keurajian (autographs) of Star Co. cards from what I have gathered.

Here are a few of mine. Nice to see some others - the centering is always tough on these issues, but the ones you've all posted above are some of the nicest I've seen.

Default 288

Nice Jamie,

Here is my #288. This and the #195 are underrated I think as they are also from 1984 with a very low pop and both outside cards in bags.

Default Underrated

This is, IMO, the most underrated card. It is obviously because it is oversized(5x7). However, its weakness also makes it great(more condition sensitive). It is also on the top of the bag and a very low pop. On top of that, it is probably the best image of all the Jordan star cards and thought to be his FIRST by some. It is 100 percent from 1984. I would buy BGS 9s all day long.
Thoughts??
