Default 1990 NBA Hoops Sam Vincent w/ MJ #12

For those that don't know, MJ wore the jersey #12 for a night when his jersey was mysteriously stolen.

The 1990 Sam Vincent NBA Hoops card happened to have MJ guarding him wearing the #12.

Just saw my friend's old collection and he's wondering how much this is worth. Does anyone know? Or does anyone have this same card?

I heard about a few cards like this. I guess they won't be worth alot, because they are not that rare.

It's an SP though, Hoops did another card of vincent because they thought it was kind of bad having the leagues marquee player in a different jersey

What does SP mean? Shouldn't something like this be worth a lot at least eventually?

SP just means Short Print, thus there aren't as many of them as the regular run of player cards.

Thus rare, and should be expensive!

no. sp is short print indeed and they're worth ... ****-all.

only cards which are worth anything are jersey cards and signed cards.


and really old rookies cards.

It's a cool card, I wouldn't mind having it.

The problem with stuff like this is during the late-80s and into the 90s everyone and their gradma who collected cards/comics started putting them in cases and treating them like collectibles.

So stuff like this can't become rare, hence the value can't rise.

I remember stuff like the Death of Superman comic book and how people at the time were saying it'd be worth so much someday that you could put yourself through college on it : Ditto for things like Shaquille O' Neal rookie cards.

Agreed. I have that card with Jordan #12 and I doubt it will even be worth enough to buy me one tropical drink at whatever beach club I waste my days at once I get to retirement age.

I also have a stack of Todd McFarlane Spider-Man, some early Image issues, and some John Byrne Man of Steel Superman comics. They'll come in handy when my bowels lose their ability to hold everything tight.

Does anyone still collect ANYTHING anymore? Now that comics have been scanned and digitized, I'm thinking of ditching my collection. Takes up too much space.
