For some of the best sports card auctions currently listed ending today, check out our Daily Auctions page, which is updated frequently!

For many basketball fans, Michael Jordan will be the GOAT – ahead of Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, and anyone else who’s played in the NBA.

Whether you agree or not, his rookie cards whenever they’re up for auction is a hot commodity.

And depending on the condition of the card, you’ll be shelling out big bucks to buy one. But the value seems to grow each year.

Here are our picks for his best rookie cards with links provided below on where you can find them on eBay to bid or buy.

1. 1986 Fleer Rookie Card #57

This is one of the most iconic modern day sports card not just for basketball, but for all professional sports.

It is Jordan’s only NBA-licensed standard issue rookie card and it’s hard to find them in pristine condition.

That’s mostly due to the dark red border which is highly susceptible to chipping. But the ones that are graded mint and gem mint will cost five to six figures.
