CSG Certifies Two More High-grade Michael Jordan Rookie Cards

Posted on 8/3/2022

The cards of the Bulls Hall of Famer are easily worth five figures.

Certified Sports Guaranty® (CSG®) has certified two more high-grade examples of one of the most eagerly sought basketball cards: the 1986-87 Fleer #57 Michael Jordan rookie card. Both cards are graded CSG 9 and are tied with one other card (that was graded in 2021) for the highest grade in the CSG Population Report.

The second and third CSG 9 examples were certified in May and July 2022. The front artwork displays Jordan’s well-known anti-gravity moves as he soars towards the basket, ball in hand. A simple background featuring two years of stats and player information adorns the back.
