Michael Jordan basketball cards make fantastic Christmas or birthday gifts for any collector, basketball or Michael Jordan fan. But if you don’t know much about them yourself how can you know what to buy and what you should pay for it?

Don’t think it is too early to start looking for the right Michael Jordan card gift – it will take you time to successfully locate and win the right card, especially if you use a competitive marketplace such as eBay. Remember too that the closer you get to Christmas, the higher the prices reach due to higher interest so get in well before mid-November to make sure you get what you want for the price you want.
