I am happy to finally see some discussion on the Star basketball card sets. I have a complete run of all three years and most or all of the subsets still in their sealed bags. I also have some additional cards graded by SCD (many years ago) and have been debating whether or not to open bags and send some of the key cards to Beckett. Any thoughts on a preference of bagged or Beckett graded from the crowd here? Thanks in advance

I would go with the Beckett graded option. I think there are too many collectors who will pass on these cards entirely if not graded.

If you are certain the bags are legit, I would keep them bagged. That is, unless the key cards(on the top) look very high grade. I would only crack a jordan 101 out, for example, if I thought it would bring a 8 or higher(maybe even an 8.5 or higher).

Damn.. That looks like a high grade 8! Love the black borders on those holders as they really make the bold star colors pop!

Nice Jordan, Ben.

What are your thoughts on collecting the other major rookies from the Star sets, i.e.- Barkley, Olajuwon, Ewing, Drexler, Wilkins, Thomas and Worthy (probably left someone else out)?

For my 2 cents worth I think the other Stars from these sets will eventually rise in price quickly. We have seen over the years a pattern where the "super duper star" rookie card gets all of the attention for a period of time, then the focus moves to the other HOFers in a set, finally followed by the commons (for the set builders). The Star cards are unique in the sense that they have not fully been accepted because of the fear of reprints. When collectors feel confident they are purchasing original cards (Beckett is helping this greatly), I think they will explode in value.

Great cards! Yes phil, I do collect the others too. I have 9 or 9.5s in most of them. Here is a beautiful Wilkins I own. As beautiful as it is, my Jordan below is just as good in person. One SP card I am in love with is the 83 Bird. I also like(collect) certain bags. I have a Jordan 101 bag and a Barkley bag.

Jewish collector.. Looking forward to seeing you buddy.
