Okay I got a question to ask Basketball collectors, I see the wax pack goes for $400 bucks. And it was a great profit for the people who bought them back in the day and selling today on the market. But going back to my question, In 20-30 years, Do you think 1988/89 Fleer Basketball are going to be valuable?
usually once a common...always a common
1986-87 has the potential at a Jordan rookie, you can't compare it to 1988-89. That $25 price for the 1988-89 is never going to get anywhere near $400.

88-89 packs? Never to that level b/c of course everybody is chasing a Jordan RC. There are some good RCs in that set though like Pippen and Stockton I think, but I wouldn't expect them to appreciate any faster than anything else.
I think the 88-89 set will keep the same price through the years to come.. the Pippen & Stockton RC's were sought after in the early 90's, but there is not a huge market for them. the 86-87 Fleer is star-studded when it comes to RC class... you can pick up a 88-89 fleer set for pretty cheap.

The least i see it for is like $25.
One of my favorite old sets of all-time: Pippen, Stockton, Reggie Miller, and Rodman rookies. IMHO, one of the most underrated sets ever.
no. and the ones on ebay most likely wont have a Jordan in it. It was easy to find the Jordan packs.
While the 88-89 set has some great rookies, the 86-87 set is just monumental. The 2 sets are exponentially apart in many ways. It's like comparing a 1952 Topps baseball set to even a 1954 Topps baseball set. Both sets are great and the 54 has rookies of Hank Aaron, Ernie Banks and Al Kaline. However the 1952 Topps set is iconic with the Mantle, Mays and all sorts of other key cards and has 10 times the value of the 1954 set. The 86-87 Fleer set is iconic compared to the 88-89 Fleer set, maybe not as iconic as the 1952 Topps set. However in basketball cards the 86-87 Fleer set is definitely towards the top of iconic sets and the 88-89 Fleer set isn't even close. So there will always be a HUGE difference in pricing of the cards between those 2 sets.
All that being said, you question was "In 20-30 years, Do you think 1988/89 Fleer Basketball are going to be valuable?". To that I answer, YES they will be valuable however nowhere near as valuable as the 86-87 Fleer cards.
DJohn is old school for sure. Smile
