Bidding on Michael Jordan 1997-98 Metal Universe Precious Metal Gems Over $17,000

Every wonder what some of the rare Michael Jordan cards are really worth? For one such card, that question is going to be answered. A 1997-98 Metal Universe Precious Metal Gems Red Michael Jordan has made its way to eBay. Ending today, bidding is over $17,000.

Graded BGS 9.5, the card is being auctioned by Probstein123, one of the top online sellers of high-end cards. It is serial numbered 018/100. That said, there are actually only 90 copies of the Red 1997-98 PMGs. The other ten are green.

Over the years, Precious Metal Gems have become one of the hobby's landmark inserts. Despite no autographs or memorabilia, they command high prices and lots of attention, even for lesser players. But when someone like Jordan or Kobe Bryant pops up, it's interesting to watch where the price ends up. Add to that the Gem Mint grade and this card should be considered a cornerstone of the modern hobby.

In October,  a PSA 8 1997-98 Metal Universe PMG Red Michael Jordan sold for $7,099.99 on eBay. A couple of weeks earlier, a BGS 8.5 went for $11,500.

Bidding is slated to end on Saturday, November 9 at approximately 10PM EST (7PM PST).

  1. Hi,

    This card looks quite dubious and has been alleged that it has been trimmed.

    There is some discussion on hobby kings here:

    In particular a series of photos of it from a few months ago has shown some obvious white specs on the edge are now gone:

  2. Fastnbulbous, that second picture looks like from the following, #32/100

    So who know what it looked it before grading..
