YET ANOTHER VINTAGE SPORTS COLLECTABLE FROM MR. CARD 1986-87 Fleer MICHAEL JORDAN #57 rookie card. GRADE BGS 7.5 (NEAR MINT+). GRADING DETAILS CENTERING 8.5... I'm a 74-year-old retired minister who began collecting and trading baseball/basketball/football/miscellaneous sports cards in early 1955 when, as an eight-year-old boy living in Paramus, New Jersey, with my father, mother and older brother, I became a Brooklyn Dodgers fanatic after attending my first Major League Baseball game between "Dem Bums" and the New York Giants at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn, New York (Dodgers' Manager Walter Alston's starters that day were C Roy Campenella, 1B Gil Hodges, 2B Jim Gilliam, SS Pee Wee Reese, 3B Don Zimmer, LF Sandy Amoros, CF Duke Snider, RF Carl Furillo and SP Don Newcombe)... Tragically, when my family moved back to my home state of Florida in the fall of 1956, I heartbrokenly discovered my dad had thrown my entire 1952-56 card collection away because "there was not enough room in the rented moving truck for them". Even though I subsequently lost the majority of my remaining extensive collection thousands and thousands of cards...

Mostly Hall-of-Famers and complete sets in a catastrophic 2013 west Texas ranch fire, I was blessed to have saved an additional 100+ rare cards that are waiting to be graded including (1) a 1951 Topps Rocky Marciano "Ringside" boxing card; (2) several 1955 Topps All-American Hall-of-Famer and two "The Four Horsemen" football cards; (3) many 1954-59 Bowman & Topps rookie and Hall-of-Famer baseball cards; (4) over a half dozen Bowman & Topps Mickey Mantle baseball cards from the mid 1950s thru the early 1960s; (5) 50+ Hall-of-Famer autographed baseball cards and baseballs; (6) several Michael Jordon rookie/2nd year/3rd year basketball cards including a SEALED (MINT) 1986-87 Star Michael Jordan 10-card set; and (7) a complete COPE COLLECTION one of 1,000 numbered sets of prints containing individual Hall-of-Famer portraits and career stats... Most are hand signed by the then living baseball Hall-of-Famers including Harmon Killebrew, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Stan Musial, Duke Snyder, Ted Williams and the recently deceased Hank Aaron while some contain facsimile signatures of the then deceased Hall-of-Famers including Roberto Clemente, Ty Cobb, Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth and Cy Young... The Cope Collection originals are displayed in Canton, Ohio's Baseball Hall of Fame. Although these cards invoke many wonderful memories I clearly remember opening a 1956 Topps baseball card wax pack and finding a duplicate Mickey Mantle I traded a neighborhood 9-year-old New York Yankees' fan for the Duke Snider I needed to complete my 1956 Topps baseball card set... I also clearly remember being in an Albuquerque, New Mexico, baseball card shop with my three sons in 1992 getting future Hall-of-Famer catcher Mike Piazza's autograph the moment he received word via telephone he'd been called up from the Albuquerque Dukes to the Los Angeles Dodgers and have brought me much pleasure over the last 65+ years, it's time to send them all to new homes.
