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.............

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??

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).

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.

Looks like by waiting and feeling out the market on the other Star RC's, I have missed the boat again, just like I did on the Jordan last year. Many of the higher-grade Ewing's, Barkley's, Olajuwon's, Drexler's, etc. have very recently sold on e-bay after being out there for a long time at enticing prices.

Oh well, I'll get in on something at the ground floor one of these days...........

Perhaps I should have kept my mouth shut until I was completely satisfied. But then again, ben's belly is never full and it is fun to share passions. Oh well.,

Centering on that Barkley should be at least a 9. Is the back way off?

No, that's why I bought it. I felt it was way better than the grade. It is a sweet card. Beckett can be all over teh place in subs; particularly in star card centering. Which.. no idea how you can be on centering of all things. It is the only thing measurable. ha! Maybe graded on a curve?? IDK

currently 700-1000 I would say. They took a huge spike despite there being quite a few compared to other Jordans in gem mint. It is a very pretty card which is probably why. Here is another tough SP of magic that is CENTERED(VERY TOUGH on this card). I thought it was fitting to show the sp bird with it too which is also difficult and one of my favorite star cards of all time. The colors!!! I keep saying that I know but star cards are beautiful!

I guess by the third year of issue, quality control at Star must have gotten a lot better to account for all of the Gem-Mint copies as compared to the second year Jordan card ('84-'85) which is virtually impossible to find Gem-Mint.

That is correct.. It was on a different part of the sheet and the cutting was much more controlled.
Attached are a couple more classic rookies. GOD I love the colors!!

Default Jordan Psa 101 -1/1

Attached is the ONLY PSA graded Jordan 101 card. It is a cool/historical piece as it relates to the star card set IMO.

That's very cool! Is it authentic? When I first saw this post, I assumed that the cert wouldn't check out, but here it is: http://www.psacard.com/Cert/02002207

Thanks for posting. How many other Star cards do you think are out there in PSA slabs?

Yes.. It is authentic(or I would never have purchased it) and the only one graded by Psa. I have no idea how many total star cards are graded.

Below sums it up that was posted on a blowoutcard thread.
"In short, they got spook when they graded a few bad apples a decade ago and stop grading Star. Since then much of the facts and myths have been confirmed or debunked. Here is a good article featuring Taft.

The Real Star Co Cards Story - Interview with renowned Star cards expert Steve Taft - Michael Jordan Cards"

Picked up this very rare Dallas Mavs 1983-84 bag. The cards appear to be mint which is a plus!
There were only 700 or so sets produced as a whole.
