Don't take anybody's word on here that's saying it's a fake! These people are hounds and jump at the first opportunity to call somebody's card a fake(view recent post about ray rice fake)....to me it looks off centered in the back, maybe trimmed, but a bad job at it if that was the case. Your best bet, since yes the Jordan RC is the most faked card around, go with the getting it graded option. Even then you never really know...those 'experts' grading it any company are notorious for not certifying auto's that didn't come from them, overly high grading premium low numbered cards, and you can send a card it, have it graded, crack the case resend it, get it a different grader and different grade, sad but true

Looks trimmed. Have him take a pic with a base card under it.

If you decide not to trade Luck for it, check my bucket. Lmao I'm pathetic

Blog of people opinions....yes there's ways to tell, but everybody knows cards printed in the 80's never looked the same, different ink variations, bad presses, bad cuts. If you go by his fleer logo and bulls eyes prediction the one he is trading for is 'real'. your best bet is getting it graded, at least then you are about 98% sure, if your having that serious of doubts dont do the trade

I am probally the least in the loop about basketball cards.But, i would wonder why this person has not gotten the card graded or sold it?

Not a chance I'm taking that risk on a raw Jordan.

Anyone that has a Jordan raw (OK not everyone - I'm generalizing) that doesn't get it graded has something to hide. 100% of this hobby knows it's worth much more if graded and authenticated. Why would you not grade it? No one is that lazy that they would rather just "trade it raw" when they know what the value of a good grade could be.

Like I said, I had a raw just never had it graded. Traded it and it graded 7

Sounds like you should have had it graded in the first place - which is exactly my point.

I dont think it looks trimmed.... but i would def be leary of the card... I know PSA does a quick grade on authenticating autographs.... They check a picture and give you their opinion on real or not real.... not sure if they do on cards or not tho... maybe that would be an option?

Bgs 6.5 jordans sell a bit above $500 consistantly, seen a few under, and a few more around $600. Good investment, I'd jump on it. Likelihood of Luck prices holding that high are pretty slim, Jordans have tested time and stay pretty consistent.
