Premier Jordan Insert - MJ's First Jersey Card

**Part of the Michael Jordan "Last Dance" Documentary Featured Event** Back where it all began, the '97 Upper Deck Game Jersey production. Throughout the history of trading cards, there have been a few cards that have inspired as much excitement as this offering. The '97 UD Game Jersey issue symbolized the start of the Jersey Patch craze and set the precedent for future productions. Overnight this iconic set became the hottest cards in the market with the key MJ #13 being the face of the production. The odds of pulling a Jordan were 1 in 55,000 packs! (just unreal). The patch is even more appealing to investors due to the fact that we know exactly where it came from, the '92 NBA All-Star game. What is equally special about this card is that it has been autographed by Michael Jordan in black ink and is assessed as pristine. The signature is an aftermarket example, signed during a 2013 MJ Flight School camp in Santa Barbara, CA and authenticated by Upper Deck. The card itself retains excellent high-grade qualities with brilliant centering, even NM-MT corners and strong borers. The surfaces show well overall with some light chipping along the top inner border surrounding the jersey patch present. In addition, the color, print and gloss is exceptional. 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. All told, this is an extraordinary offering which is only deserving of the finest investment portfolio. Please see the video highlight for more details.
