After many months of work in my spare time I am finally please to release the completely revamped JordanCards.com!
This post is just a quick update for regular readers of JordanCards.com regarding the website. Some have noticed I have been away from regular updates and responses to emails so I thought it best to publish a notice.
Regular readers will know that I hadn't intended to make any further updates to JordanCards.com until I completed the complete revamp which I've had slowly underway for sometime. (Apologies for the delay - I promise it is incoming!)
Regular readers will know what a big fan I am of classic re-releases of past awesome inserts. The 11-12 UD Fleer Retro takes this to a new level! This set brings back some of the most coveted classic Jordan inserts from Fleer and Skybox - only now Michael Jordan (and all other players) are featured in their college teams!

I conducted a roundtable discussion with three very knowledgeable collectors to look at the status of the 1984-85 Star #101 Michael Jordan card. The question on the table was: “Is the 84-85 Star #101 card Michael Jordan’s true rookie card and why/why not? Why is it that the card is designated an XRC by most collectors?”
A fellow collector sent in a couple of scans of his very unusual pack pulled 1996-97 SP #16 card asking if I had any information about the card's origins. This one stumped not only me but also several other collectors and resulted in varying information from Beckett and Upper Deck.
Will removable markings such as fingerprint and wax will affect your card grade and if so will grading companies clean the card for you?
