Jordan vs Jordan

RE: Jordan vs Jordan
Nice conversation going here and some really good points being raised.

I think a lot of factors are in play when it comes to the MJ prices that are being realized these days. International popularity for the man and the sport are clearly a major one. MJ has the broadest appeal of all sports icons, not only of our time but perhaps of all time.

When talking about 90's inserts I think the biggest factor is who the collector is. Most people chasing these are guys in their 30s that grew up collecting these cards and are finding their way back to the hobby now, with a load of disposable income. Most remember ripping pack after pack, more often than not unsuccessfully searching for that elusive MJ insert. Now that eBay puts a wealth off cards at our fingertips and we have the money to spend, of course these will see a boom in demand. This is no different than what happened with Mantle cards at the boom of the hobby back in the late 80s and 90s.

Another major factor is the egos involved in the registry sets/showing off collections on forums like these and other online avenues for displaying awesome cards.Depending on which big boy collector is after what card at a certain time could make prices go through the roof...especially if multiple high end collectors are after the same one.

While the market will ebb and flow I think MJs stuff is easily the surest bet in the hobby. Over time its hard to imagine anyone taking a bath on high end MJs. This 90s insert craze has been going strong for a minute and i doubt it slows anytime soon.
