Get all three!

But maybe replace the Star Jordan with his 86 Fleer RC. You get a better pose on the Fleer, it's cheaper (relative to the Star), and the Star is almost always found OC with distracting tilt.

Or get the 85 Jordan, still a year before his supposed rookie.

From looking at the last auction sale prices on eBay, the Jordan Star 101 is an $18,000 card in BGS 9, an $8,500 card in BGS 8.5 and a $5,500 card as a BGS 8 right now, yet even Beckett has graded many multiples of the '86 Fleer card. Even a mid-range Jordan 101 is a $2,000 card, yet less than 1,000 of them have been graded by the only company that grades them? PSA alone has graded 17,000 of the Jordan Fleer card.

If undetectable reprints were out there, those kind of prices would bring them out to be graded, IMO.

Maybe nobody kept the reprints because they were reprints.

If PSA ever does start grading them, the card would explode in value above what they command now, IMO.

Anyway, of the three cards listed, I would go with Ruth in a heartbeat over the other two because...it's Babe Ruth.
It seems I have heard a dozen rumors over the years that PSA was going to start grading these. I think they're probably started by people wanting to push the values up.

If it was impossible to distinguish from the original, how would they know? There are many different baseball reprints that are decades old and people still kept them.

One unfortunate truth about the hobby is that if it is possible to scam someone, reprints certainly would have been kept and used to fleece unsuspecting buyers.

Congrats. It is a great looking card in hand, and there always seem to be a few Goudey Ruths around. Should be some available when you're ready.
