Critically Important Modern Investment Piece

Stop the presses! On the market this month is a holy grail type Michael Jordan piece, the 2008-09 Exquisite Collection Limited Logos card. This card is a unicorn with only twenty-three copies in existence and virtually zero sales history. When you think about it, this museum caliber piece is far rarer than the '97 Precious Metal Gems Red card! There simply aren't enough of these to ever satisfy demand. The offered number 20/23 card is gorgeous throughout and deserving of professional grading. This card was pulled directly from a box in 2008 and has been sitting within a private portfolio until now. The card boasts uncirculated qualities with many attributes of a GEM MINT card. The surfaces are stunning with zero scuffs, scratches or indents present. The highly condition sensitive gold foil inlay is free of wear and the ultra condition sensitive patch corners are void of any wrinkles (rare). The edges are gorgeous with only minor chipping to top reverse present. The centering is spot on and the corners are all almost perfectly formed (micro touch to the front extreme upper right is present). On top of these superb card qualities the card boasts an undeniably pristine autograph which has been beautifully penned in blue ink. Furthermore, the card possesses one of the greatest game-used Chicago Bulls jersey patches we've ever seen; an awesome three color example. With all due respect to Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell, Jerry West, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and many others, Michael Jordan is considered the greatest basketball player of all-time with his incredible stats and six NBA championship rings. From the very beginning, Michael Jordan partnered with Nike to create a worldwide brand, "Air Jordan", that far surpassed those of his contemporaries. The Air Jordan brand became synonymous with Basketball and made everyone want to 'Be Like Mike'. To this day, Michael Jordan is a household name and perhaps the most recognized athlete in the world. With the international growth of Basketball at an all-time high, these highly rare Michael Jordan offerings continue to soar in value. This is easily one of the most exciting modern Basketball cards we've had the pleasure of brokering in some time. Deserving of the finest portfolio. One of over 15,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 9th Auction of 2019. Click on the link above to view the other PWCC auction lots.
