The auction also includes several key CSG-graded cards from various vintage Topps baseball sets.

A valuable Michael Jordan rookie is among dozens of cards graded by Certified Sports Guaranty® (CSG®) that are being offered in a Hake’s Auctions sale. Bidding is already underway for Auction #236 Session I, which is set to end on November 15, 2022.

The top CSG-certified card in the sale is an iconic 1986-87 Fleer #57 Michael Jordan rookie card graded CSG 6 (lot 778). Despite having a high print run, this Michael Jordan card is one of the most sought-after modern basketball cards by collectors. The front of the card features Jordan performing one of his famous slam dunks, while the back shows two years of stats. The card has an estimate of at least $2,000.

Michael Jordan began his basketball career with the Chicago Bulls in 1984, where he quickly established himself as one of the top basketball players of all time. Jordan scored an average of 30.12 points — fifth on the all-time list — across his 1,072 games played across 15 seasons. His gravity-defying moves on the court earned him several nicknames from fans, including “Air Jordan” and “His Airness” among others.
