Default 1986-87 Fleer Michael Jordan Rookie Card #57 BGS 9.5

Hello,

I am seriously considering buying this 1986-87 Fleer Michael Jordan Rookie Card #57. This card achieved a Beckett grading of 9.5.

Everything checks out to me, but before spending such a large amount of money, I wanted to see if anyone thinks there is reason to question the authenticity of the grading and card. Should there be any paperwork in addition to the slab? These pictures aren't the best, but they are all that I have for the time being.

Thanks in advance.
Reece

Looks fine to me. Do you have any reason to question it? Is the seller reputable with good references?

Fantastic card I would like to get one but I have twins going to college next year: 17 years ago should have bought 20 of each instead for their 529s...

Or you could pay 5 figures for an ungraded one (from a seller that just sold a Jordan rookie of "unknown authenticity" for a few hundred bucks earlier this month)

It's just flabbergasting. I guess that the bidders are hoping for a PSA 9 or miracle 10, and at first glance, it looks real. But such a risk to take.

Thanks for the feedback and references. The seller was on Craigslist, so not a person who I know personally or inherently trust. After brief correspondence and requesting more pictures of the card/slab and the slab's patent number, I haven't heard back from the seller. If I end up picking it up, I'll send an update. Thanks once again.

If the price is too good to be true, pass. Why would you buy that card from an unknown seller on Craiglist anyhow?

I would pass anyway as it's overgraded and it might even be small, Beckett probably has a worse record of slabbing trimmed examples of that card than PSA. It looks to me like maybe there is more border side to side than top to bottom?

Apparently there are fake BGS slabs being made. There were two Luka’s pulled from Probstein yesterday.

You can bet the next batch already has the "." right and will be sealed better.

Did you see the recent news about the fake BGS slabs on the #57 and one of the major sellers/AH's?

Then again, looking at those fake BGS holders... I would want to see this one in person for sure.

I think the fact that it is on Craigslist is a huge red flag. at least for me.
if you have a big money card, how do you make so little effort not to find your way to Ebay, Facebook, or Net54?
