One Of Michael Jordan’s Rookie Cards Sold On eBay For Over $400k
I've been collecting sports cards for years. Back in the day, I was much more into the hobby. So much so, that it went from hobby to business while I was in high school. My dad helped me secure tables at sports card shows in my area. He built me a display case, and drove me wherever that weekend's show was. I never really made a lot of money, but a learned a lot out there.
After high school I drifted in and out of the hobby. But more recently I got back in pretty heavily, at least I tried to.
Over the last couple of years, the sports card hobby has exploded. With massive increases over the last 18 months specifically. If you're into sports cards, you're probably aware that major retail stores don't even have sports card products out on the shelfs. Cards are being sold with such demand right now that fights have broken out in stores, causing the product to be moved behind the counter.
But that's what happens when some single cards are selling for tens-of-thousands of dollars online.
We've been covering some of these sales for the past few months, with players like LeBron James, Zion Williamson, Patrick Mahomes, Kobe Bryant, and Josh Allen all having cards that have sold for more than $50,000 on eBay. Not just once either, all of these players, and others, have had multiple sales in the five digit range, with many breaking the $100,000 mark.
So as we continue to track these crazy eBay sales, this week it wasn't a "modern" player who had an insane sale. This time it was a classic, and one of the holiest of holy grail cards ever.
One of Michael Jordan's rookie cards cracked the $400,000 mark last week on eBay. Check out the list of recent big money sales here:
