These cards are valuable. 1986 Topps baseball cards are currently the least valuable of the major sports cards from 1986. Current values cannot be used to determine future value, opportunity exists for these cards all to increase in value over time.
1986-87 Fleer Basketball Michael Jordan rookie, what is not to like about this card. It is his rookie, though there are a lot of counterfeits, so when buying one you have to make sure it is authentic.
(1986-87 Fleer Basketball) This is one of the best if not the best basketball set ever produced. It includes a Michael Jordan rookie card among all of the other hall of fame rookie cards. It is very highly valued and highly sought after. If you look around enough, you can find unopened wax packs and boxes and they bring top dollar, much more than any unopened box from any year in the 1980's.
Included are many rookie cards with names like Michael Jordan, Karl Malone, Charles Barkley, Hakeem Olajuwon, Clyde Drexler, Chris Mullin, Isiah Thomas, Joe Dumars and many more. There are only 132 cards in the set and there are probably 20 cards that are highly valued if not more. If you had an unopened wax box (first off congratulate yourself because it is worth thousands of dollars) you could open the packs and probably get 3 or more Michael Jordan rookie cards. There are also sticker cards in the pack that come one per pack and there are 12 in the set. Michael Jordan has a sticker in there as well that has a book value of over $100. This set has an extremely high book value with the Michael Jordan being close to $1,000 in ungraded near mint to mint condition. Watch out for counterfeits though because there are a lot of them. Buy from a reputable seller when purchasing them (search around on Google if you want to learn more about the cards). I
If you have these cards in your collection, they are great to own. You can either save them for the future or you can sell them if you want as they are already very highly valued. Doing an ebay search can alert you to the value of them. (There is an ebay widget on the main page of our site)
Good luck in your card collections and if you have any 1986-87 Fleer cards that you did not realize you had, please do some research to find out their value before you trade or sell them without knowing how valuable they are.
We are just going to zone in on 1986 sports cards here, there are a plethora to go through.
From one basketball card collector to all of the others, here is a complete listing (as many as I can find) of Clyde Drexler rookie basketball cards from Star Company and Fleer. If I am missing any of them, please add them on in there and let's get this Clyde Drexler thread going.
1983-84 Star Company Clyde Drexler XRC (rookie card) #100
1984-85 Star Company #165
1985-86 Star Company #106

The 1986 Topps baseball card set is a good set. Despite the fact that it does not have a lot of rookie cards or high booking cards in the set, it is still a good set to have. It is very afforable right now, and at most places you can find boxes for $20 or less. Rack boxes, vending cases, wax boxes and cases are all very affordable. The set has rookie cards of Cecil Fielder and a few others that are notable and also has a second year Roger Clemens along with a Pete Rose subset within the set. For long term value, I would recommend not to expect it to go up to $100 per box, but the price doubling in time is within reason in my opinion.
I a case of cards that I ordered from Ebay - 1986 Sportflics baseball cards. These are awesome. Unfortunately, I did not get the Robin Yount error card that books at $50 in the price guide, but I did get many hall of famers. I have yet to get the Jose Canseco rookie either but that might be coming up soon as I have many unopened boxes still to open and there were 12 boxes in the case. (I since opened the rest of the packs and got several Canseco rookies, yay!)
These are still very affordable, I paid about $70 delivered for the case. You cannot beat that for cards from 1986 that include Canseco rookies. Plus, the plethora of hall of famers is exceptional. You get many Cal Ripken cards and combination cards including some old timers like Vida Blue and Dave Concepcion. I think it is a hidden gem and as I open the rest of the packs, I will post some more of what I get in this thread.
Star Company and Fleer Basketball contain rookie cards of Hakeem Olajuwon, and are among the most sought after basketball cards from the 1980's, and of all time because of their rarity. This posting will address some key issues and describe some of the many cards available of Hakeem from this time period.
Hakeem Olajuwon's XRC (rookie card as well) is in 1984-85 Star Company basketball cards in the regular issue set, and it has a book value in Beckett of about $240, possibly $200. It comes in the bagged team set of the Houston Rockets. While the cards are denoted 1984, as they were produced in that year, he also appears in other rare bagged sets from Star Company in 1984. Those can be priced a bit more affordably, with cards of his booking for around $60, as an example. In 1985-86 Star Company, the bagged set including him is readily available on Ebay most of the time, and has a great second year card that books about $85. I have one for sale in the unopened bagged set as well.
In Fleer, his rookie card came in 1986-87, and is very valuable and sought after, though books at about $40. It is less valuable than his second year card in Star Company, though is still technically considered to be a rookie card as are all of the rookies in 1986-87 including Michael Jordan. The Star Company cards were not originally widely available and the best explanation as to why they are considered XRC's and not rookies, is because they are similar to traded card sets in that they did not come in packs, but rather in sealed team bagged sets. I am not sure if that is what Beckett and the other price guides' explanation is as to the difference, but it makes sense as the Fleer cards were available in packs and boxes. Enjoy and please take a look at this page to find all of the best and rarest Star Company basketball cards of Hakeem Olajuwon.
