Michael Jordan rookie card, 1986 Fleer Wax Box highlight PWCC April auction

A Michael Jordan rookie card and a 1986 Fleer Wax Box that could include multiple Jordan rookies highlight the April auction at PWCC Marketplace.

The 1986 Fleer Michael Jordan rookie card is one of the most valuable and important cards in the sports collectible industry, helping launch the current hobby boom during the pandemic last year.

Jordan rookie cards are still in high demand, making a 1986 Fleer Basketball Wax Box equally as attractive.

With a Jordan rookie card inside, the 1986 Fleer Basketball box is one of the most highly sought-after wax boxes ever produced.

PWCC Marketplace has a sealed and authenticated 1986 Fleer Wax Box up for bid in its April Premier Auction, which ends April 16. While there are no guarantees, PWCC officials and many in the hobby believe there are an average of three Jordan rookie cards in the unopened packs. The current bid is at $90,000.
