Iconic Modern-Era Investment Piece - Must See

This is one of those rare auction offerings which seems to transcend what's typical, falling into a category rarely attended and reserved for elite cards with 'fine art' investment status. The 1997 Precious Metal Gems production is largely identified as the most iconic and hotly desired issue from the 1990s and is largely credited with ushering in what would become the future of nearly all high value modern inserts with limited production serial numbered quantities and highly technical and inexplicably expensive production methods. These cards really did become artistic in both design and manufacture and carry a jewelry-like demeanor in the emotions of most advanced investors. The PMG Red was limited in production to just 90 copies and is generally the poster child for the issue. We had the pleasure of auctioning our first MJ Green variation of the PMG last month where it brought a record $350,100. Offered here is the crown jewel of the PMG Red production, a Michael Jordan with serial number #95/100 and generally showing what we would consider NM-MT+ to MINT qualities in almost every way. Very light manufacturer-issued edge chipping is all that downgrades. This card is truly stunning and may be the finest preserved example we've brokered in our history (and yes we've sold much higher technical grades). What remains is a world class investment piece from the modern card era and generally sets a tone of investment potential which is largely unmatched by any other issue. We are pleased to offer this wonderful masterpiece to the investment community, free of reserve or any other restriction. Don't miss this!
