Default Michael Jordan Star Rookie

Hello all, I am a frequent visitor to the prewar baseball section of this board but would like to ask for input from some of you who are more well versed in modern basketball. This Jordan was found by a friend when going through a binder of 80s and 90s cards. Any thoughts as to authenticity? I know these have been widely reproduced. Any input would be most appreciated.

No way to tell from those images: send it to Beckett.

Default Thank you

Thank you both for your input. Back looks more pink in person. I will recommend it be sent off to Beckett.

I think it's authentic.
3 things to look for:

1. Jordan's head appears bald in the fakes, almost white completely. on your card, you can see the hair, and there's just a hint of the white glare.
2. on the reverse, "REB" is capitalized on authentic copies, "reb" on reprints.
3. the line at the bottom of the stats, right above "TOTALS" should go over just one decimal point. the fake ones the line goes all the way through.

so this looks real. nice card.
