I also have the Fleer Michael Jordan rookie card. It is in a lucite case in my fireproof safe. I am going to give it to my son some day. His name is Jordan Michael. The book price fluctuates between $1000-2000. I have not checked recently. His stint with the Wizards hurt the value. I got the card when I was in high school. We were at a road basketball game and while we were waiting for the JV game to finish, my teamate and I walked arround the colletors show in the lobby. We split the price of an unopened box of 1986-87 Fleer Basketball cards. It was $16.00 total. We went through it the next day and spilt everything up. We ended up with a full set each and doubles of most players.
The cool thing about that set is that there were no mass produced cards in 84-85 or 85-86. The only NBA cards made that are acknowledged for those two years are by Star. They were only available at the All Star game and in limited quantities at NBA games. They are so rare that the cards go for big money. There were a ton of Hall of Fame players that had their rookie years between 84-85 and 86-87. Since this is the first set that was produced and liscenced by the NBA, they are considered rookie cards. They also didn't make nearly as many of each card then as the NBA was just starting to regain it's popularity. It had Jordan, Barkley, Drexler, Olajawon, Ewing, Dumars, Stockton and Malone. The set goes for about $3000 in mint condition. I still have them all.
