By acclamation, Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time. Although, a summary of his basketball career and influence on the game inevitably fails to do it justice, as a phenomenal athlete with a unique combination of fundamental soundness, grace, speed, power, artistry, improvisational ability, and an unquenchable competitive desire, Jordan single-handedly redefined the NBA superstar. Even contemporaneous superstars recognized the unparalleled position of Jordan. Magic Johnson said, “There’s Michael Jordan and then there is the rest of us.” Larry Bird, following a playoff game where Jordan dropped 63 points on the Boston Celtics in just his second season, appraisal of the young player was: “God disguised as Michael Jordan.” The featured card shows MJ with his tongue out in his customary position showing his determination and focus taking one of his nameless rabble of victims to the rim. The featured noted rarity is one of just ninety copies issued while the even more obscure green variant is out of ten. Knowledgeable enthusiasts have long known the importance of this issue, as well as the exceptional fragility of the release as the card's surface, is exceptionally fragile. The normal cutting process of this release will often and most likely chip the exceptionally fragile borders. The offered example appears NM/MT in every respect with a freshness of subject not normally encountered. PSA has harshly graded the featured card EX/MT 6 based primarily on a chip to the upper edge. It should be noted that when taken into consideration of other graded copies the featured keepsake matches up quite favorably if not in advance of their appearance.
