Cardboard bucket list item acquired; Welcome Michael Jordan auto
There are few players who played their respective sport at the level at which Michael Jordan did. And when it comes to the hobby, there is probably no other name who commands the premium that Jordan does.
But the one glaring hole in my collection — not just Jordan collection, but my entire card collection — has been a Jordan autograph.
Well, that problem has been solved.
Jordan autographs are readily available, but they are pricey. And they come in so many variations that I wanted to make sure that when I acquired one it was one I actually wanted to hold onto.
The price point for this one was on par with what one would expect to pay for a Jordan auto. And while I would have preferred a Bulls card (always two to three times what I paid for this one) or a White Sox card (doesn’t exist) this on-card example is far superior to the signed floor cards that are all over the market.
And so, my Jordan auto has arrived and taken its place in my collection. It might be times to settle down on the big purchases and start purging again, just as I did in 2010 after I acquired my 1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle rookie card.
