Ben:

I had the same idea but last year before the price really spiked on the Star Jordan RC's. I have not been in a good cash position for a while now so couldn't make the pick-ups. As usual, I missed the boat, too late now............

Same thing happened with Giancarlo Stanton RC's a couple of years ago...........

The vintage baseball RC's that I was able to buy like Aaron, Mays, Clemente, etc. netted me zero in return. Go figure, right.............

Yeah.. they have def gone up but I do not see them ever declining as they are RARE. Here is another I picked up. 1984-85 #195.

Definitely scarce, Ben. My biggest fear with them is the fact that the fakes of all Star Co. basketball cards produced were so good that both PSA and SGC have refused to grade these since Day 1. Even though Beckett has taken on the task in recent years, how many fakes do you think have slipped through the cracks and are in holders? My guess is a decent amount and if one of these ends up being a 9.5 Jordan RC and is discovered, the resulting news hitting the market could cause a big downturn in this issue overall IMHO.

Phil, I understand what you are saying as I once had some of the same concerns.

Now, however, I believe there is a huge misconception about potential fakes of Star Company cards. Ck out the link. This is from Steve Taft. He is the #1 expert in Star cards. He trained Beckett, GAI, and SCD. He is the Steve Hart (unopened material), Lew Lipset (preWar cards), Paul Muchinsky (pinbacks), Henry Yee (photographs), Grad/Spence/Keurajian (autographs) of Star Co. cards from what I have gathered.

Here are a few of mine. Nice to see some others - the centering is always tough on these issues, but the ones you've all posted above are some of the nicest I've seen.

Default 288

Nice Jamie,

Here is my #288. This and the #195 are underrated I think as they are also from 1984 with a very low pop and both outside cards in bags.

Default Underrated

This is, IMO, the most underrated card. It is obviously because it is oversized(5x7). However, its weakness also makes it great(more condition sensitive). It is also on the top of the bag and a very low pop. On top of that, it is probably the best image of all the Jordan star cards and thought to be his FIRST by some. It is 100 percent from 1984. I would buy BGS 9s all day long.
Thoughts??

Any good place to look to get a good up to date sense of what the Star cards are worth?

Star cards have been fairly active on EBay in recent months and you can sort by completed sale for pricing. I follow these closely. If you are looking to buy and new to Star, buy cards in the BGS holder already until you have time to study up. The fakes are easy to tell if you take the time to learn and is worth the effort as the cards are beauties.

Here are two recent Jordan pickups. I have been wanting to get an Entenmann's Jordan for some time. The Star Jordan #117 is a beautiful 2nd year card. The Star Jordan was produced before the 1986 Fleer Jordan.

I just picked up my first star jordans, the ten card subset from 86. All are Beckett 8's. I am very impressed by Becketts grading of these (love the sub grading) and will be on the lookout for others.

The Jordan 10 card subset is very underappreciated and a great place to start a Star basketball collection. You can still pick up BGS 9 cards from that subset for under $200 which is pretty astounding considering the limited print run on one of Jordan's earliest cards.

Alright, I'm late buying this, but it is still something I can easily flip down the line. It has two 9.5 sub-grades as well, which is cool.

I was actually going to purchase a BGS 8 at first, but when I saw that a 7.5 was going for $2000 - $2500 less, then I was like "screw that, I'll just go with the cheaper option!"

Now I think I will have to go after the other big rookies in this set - Barkley will probably be next. Oh, and I find it awesome that this set has the true John Stockton RC as well (he was excluded from the 1986 and 1987 Fleer sets).

Second year. I hope it's real LOL although I have it on pretty good assurance that it is.

Peter,

Nice card. If you have any concerns, then just email the scans to Steve Taft and ask him for his opinion. He was one of the original distributors of Star basketball cards back in the 1980s.

Thanks. I got approval not from Steve but from another guy who is extremely knowledgeable about Star BKB. I don't entirely trust BGS due to seeing so many cards that look really short in their holders.

Samosa, that is a beautiful #101. Peter, your #117 is indeed legit and a 10 subgrade to boot definitely adds something extra.
