Just Collect Helps Collector Purchase 1986 Fleer Michael Jordan Rookie

Leighton Helps Collector Complete Their 1986-87 Fleer Basketball Set
  • January 26, 2024

At the White Plains card show, Just Collect helped a collector purchase a 1986-87 Fleer Michael Jordan rookie card as they experienced the thrill of collecting the complete set. See how the owner, Leighton, used good energy to make this deal a special one.

Here at Just Collect, we LOVE helping you take home your dream card. Whether you're looking for a center piece of a collection, a hard-to-find vintage card, or you're *this close* to completing your favorite set, we are here to help! With almost three decades of experience, and the best vintage selection in the hobby, Just Collect can help you fulfill your collecting dreams.

While at the White Plains card show, a collector by the name of Chris inquired about a 1986-87 Fleer basketball Michael Jordan rookie card we had for sale. Our card was graded as a PSA 6, and Chris was trying to complete the entire set of cards in that grade. This Michael Jordan card is the LAST card Chris needed to own every single card from the set!

Chris did exactly what we express often: always bring cards to trade. Yes, we stress to bring cash to a convention; cash is always King. However, if you have cards you're interested in selling - bring them with you! Chris asked if we were willing to part with the Jordan rookie card for a mixture of cash and cards he was willing to trade. Along with a 1961 Topps Willie Mays, Chis included a pair of late 1960's Mickey Mantle cards. You can see the deal here:



Thank you for stopping by the Just Collect booth, Chris, and working with Leighton. Congratulations on completing your 1986-87 Fleer basketball set! We know the Jordan card went to a great home. This is what we love to do - help you with your collecting love, and helping the hobby by finding wonderful homes for sports cards.

If you're looking for a card or are interested in selling a collection, we'll be at The Philly show soon! See all the details about the March show HERE. Like Chris, bring extra cards and good energy - maybe YOU can complete your dream set with Just Collect in Philly.
