When it comes to all things basketball, including memorabilia, Michael Jordan is tops. “His Airness” won six NBA titles and utterly dominated the league while playing for the Chicago Bulls in the late ’80s and throughout much of the ’90s. There was little on a basketball court Jordan couldn’t do—he would break defenders’ ankles with a crossover dribble or fly above them and throw down massive dunks. He played stifling defense, and if there was a picture next to the word “clutch” in the dictionary, it would be his.

Almost anything associated with Jordan is collectible. His autographed basketballs, his jerseys, and, of course, the shoe brand named for him, Air Jordan, are all coveted by collectors. Naturally it’s a Michael Jordan basketball card that’s considered that hobby’s biggest prize, in particular, his 1986-87 Fleer rookie card.

Jordan collectibles go beyond the realm of basketball. After the 1992-93 season, Jordan abruptly retired and took up baseball. He played in the Chicago White Sox farm system, which means his baseball cards and autographed baseballs from his time there are must-haves for diehard Jordan fans. Baseball, though, was not Jordan’s game, which is why he returned to the Bulls in 1995, where he played for three more championship-winning teams.
