Help with value of card..
 
1 Attachment(s)
I used to collect basketball back in the day, and I ran across a card today of which I can't find the value. It's a 96-97 Fleer Ultra Karl Malone Platinum Medallion Edition, but the card looks different than any other one I could find by eBay or Google. I was wondering if one of you guys might be able to help me out.

Its the Platinum parallel. I believe they were 1 in 180 packs. They're not serial #'d, but they have a stated print run of 250 each. Search ebay for 96/97 Fleet Ultra Platinum Medallion and you'll find them. Hope this helped :)

Were there 2 Karl Malone cards in 96-97 Fleer Ultra? the one I found is like card #120 something, but this one is #253..not talking about the /250 either- it's the card # in the set.

Malone had cards in series 1 and 2. Several teams updated their uniforms in 1996-97 and manufacturers put 2 different cards in the base sets. Same is true in Topps, and a few other sets. The difference on Series 1 and 2 is that Series 2 printed the word Platinum medallion on the front to help collectors identify the cards. They all Had a p-# on the back. but Series 2 had the name on the front as well. Neither series were serial #ed, print runs were announced.

Awesome, thanks! It's been a long time, and I had forgotten these things.
