Question Shout out for some opinions!

I currently have an Andrew Luck RPS Contenders Rookie Ticket Autograph that I got in a trade, card is in great shape, looks like a very nice pick up.

Anyways, I got offered a Michael Jordan Fleer RC for it, Raw...

Was wondering what you guys thought? Do you think it's a good trade? If I got the MJ, i'd ship the puppy off to BGS right away.

Let me know!

Ungraded the Luck is about $400. If you think the Jordan will grade at least a 6, I'd do it. MJ is MJ. Tough to turn down the greatest of all-time vs. a 1-year QB.

i would be careful, aren't there a lot of fakes of that card? And if it was the real deal, what is the condition? That is what i would want to know before i traded.

So if it was real and in at least near-mint condition i would do it.

If the Jordan is in nice condition, I would trade. I like Luck but Jordan will always be in demand. Luck might blow his knee out next year.

I don't collect any basketball at all, but I agree with you.

Like he said even if it gets around a 6 you should be good value wise.

Is it a trade where you can actually physically examine the card before the trade goes down or is it online?

Has it been trimmed? The scan shows very thin border around the whole back of the card. Here is a back of the real deal!

Get lots of HIGH QUALITY scans and ask on the basketball forum. Lots of people can tell you if they think it's real or not. Be VERY careful when dealing with a raw Jordan because there have been SO MANY fakes/reprints of that card...

As part of the deal I'd have him send it off to PSA and if it comes back as legit then do the deal.

Yea based on that pic the back is either WAY off center or its been trimmed more than likely.

I would ask for higher quality pics if I were you.

If I remember right I think one way to spot a fake is the crowd behind Jordan? If its like extremely bright and too colorful its a fake. Its tough to tell from that pic.

And the right side of the card looks trimmed to me some? Very little, but it still looks a little trimmed but that could just be the scan or just my eyes lol

Tell him to get it authenticated first. Split the price. If it comes back real, do the trade and reimburse him his half of the grading fee. May seem like alot of work but it protects you both. If you do this without knowing if the Jordan is real in advance then if you get robbed you deserve it. Spend the extra 20 bucks to cover your azz. Dont cheap out.

Only Prob with that, if it comes back a 7, it is now worth 500+ then he wouldn't want to trade

Sounds fishy for someone to trade a MJ rookie for a Luck.

You could take a gamble and lose 300.
