Iconic Michael Jordan Fleer Basketball Cards & Bowman Mickey Mantle Baseball Card Lead Upcoming Grails and Goats SaleMar 24, 2023 10:00 CDT
For basketball fans, Hindman’s upcoming Grails and Goats auction will offer an unopened box of 1986-87 Fleer basketball cards (36 packs) featuring one Michael Jordan rookie card, the highest valued lot. The top card, card no. 57, features Michael Jordan in an iconic moment soaring to the basket, arm extended for a beautiful slam dunk. It is an all-original wax pack issued by Fleer with additional four Jordan stickers. This collection is said to be one of the finest examples of this storied issue to come to market. It has remained untouched since its original factory issue over three decades ago.
Sports fans will find numerous collections of cards of their favorite players. Among them is a 1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle rookie baseball card no. 253. This offering has been certified authentic by SGC. Mickey Mantle’s first appearance on a baseball card in striking, vibrant colors showcase his youth and potential as The Commerce Comet. Mantle, a young boy from a financially poor background in Oklahoma, became one of the greatest and most beloved baseball players. He could run from home plate to first base in 2.9 seconds and could hit a ball 540 feet—the longest home run in Major League history. Visit Hindman for more information on the upcoming Grails and Goats sale and to place a bid.
