Music FINALLY GOT IT! Magic/Bird Hoops auto
I have been after this card since 1994 when I was 15. I have been skittish a number of times due to the rampant counterfeits but this one is beautiful. I bought it from an eBayer who was nice enough to end the auction early for me and has 100% positive feedback.

That is a beautiful card! I'm curious, if you don't mind sharing what did it set you back?

Thanks! $300. The funny thing is there was a PSA 9 that I was trying to win and at the last moment of the auction someone bid $5 more than me and won it with $330. Ended up working out though ;D

Man, that card brings back the memories! I was a little older in '94 but I remember pulling a few of the unsigned ones back in the day. Congrats on the excellent pickup!

Collecting Nolan Ryan, Derek Jeter, Mike Trout and especially...Jonathan Lucroy (my daughter is his #1 fan!)

$300 is not bad at all. That is a beautiful card. I wonder if there are any other Magic/Bird Dual Autos. Well congrats on finally achieving your goal!

VERY Nice! Super congrats on finally landing it. I wouldn't want any other Magic/Bird dual auto but this card, the one and only!

One of the top 100 basketball cards of all time in my book. I probably had dreams about this card back then hahaha

BTW, I just read in Beckett that the auto version is MB1A but I have never seen a card on the back have MB1A, just MB1. Am I missing something?
