Top Michael Jordan Golf Cards of All-Time

Top Michael Jordan Golf Cards of All-Time

Michael Jordan has the Midas Touch in the collecting world and that extends even to his hobbies. While he played professional basketball and baseball during his storied career, Jordan always had a special place in his life for golf. Jordan could be found on the golf course regularly throughout his active playing days and he obviously has a lot more free time now.  The golf course is also the site of many of his gambling stories, with reports that his bets would reach into the hundreds of thousands and his debts would push into the millions. When Jordan was remarried in April of 2013, the reception took place at a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf club in Jupiter, Florida. Plus, he has a sweet golf cart.

Michael Jordan golf cards do not carry the same values as his basketball cards, but collectors have still taken notice. While cards displaying Jordan's affinity for golf are not a new concept, 2012 saw an influx that captured the attention of many collectors.

The following list goes deep into the Jordan database. True golf sets are still not a regular occurrence, so several cards on the list are oddball or unlicensed cards featuring "His Airness."

Top Michael Jordan Golf Cards

1990 Aamer Sport Jordan Knows Michael Jordan

Air II Knows Michael Jordan

1990-91 Slam Dunk Best of the Best Michael Jordan

Likely the first Michael Jordan golf cards, these unlicensed cards are popular despite an unknown origin. The yellow-bordered "Jordan Knows Golf" card from Aamer Sport was printed in "Taiwain" and includes Jordan's full name on the front of the card. The black and white card alludes to Jordan's Nike shoe line and provides no background information. The Slam Dunk cards feature two different Michael Jordan golf cards. The cards are all part of larger Michael Jordan sets that mostly include basketball and baseball images.

1990-91 Skybox Michael Jordan #41

This might be stretching it a little, but the card does feature a Michael Jordan golf image on the back. These dollar bin cards helped first expose the collecting world to Jordan's love for the sport.

1994 Upper Deck Jordan Rare Air Michael Jordan

Paying tribute to Michael Jordan after his retirement (the first time), Upper Deck issued a "Rare Air" factory set that included 90 cards of Jordan. Four of these cards (#32, #33, #34, #35) featured Jordan engaging in some aspect of golf. Card #32 shows Jordan putting in work on his clubs. This less glamorous look at Jordan is a nice change from the dominant, aggressive persona he normally exudes. Also, he is wearing a crazy outfit.

1994 Sports Sensations National Convention Michael Jordan #/5000

This card always makes me chuckle. Perhaps the least intimidating image of Jordan, this was a promotional card issued by Sports Sensations for the 1994 National Sports Collectors Convention in Houston, TX. Despite being limited to 5000, these can be found for pretty cheap. This was part of a set of Michael Jordan cards issued for the event.

1994-95 Collector's Choice Basketball Pro Set Michael Jordan #204

Another cheap option for collectors, this Michael Jordan golf card came in the basketball version of Collector's Choice. Jordan was already playing baseball at this point, but Upper Deck learned quickly to include Jordan in every product possible.

1997 Sports Illustrated for Kids II Michael Jordan #571

Sports Illustrated for Kids is an interesting product that was unlikely to ever have much collectible value. However, some cards have become quite popular, namely the 1996 Sports Illustrated for Kids Tiger Woods card. This Michael Jordan golf card was actually an April Fools mashup that featured the torso of Tiger Woods and the head of Michael Jordan.

2012 SP Game Used Michael Jordan #23

This base card from 2012 SP Game Used features a nice current design. Unfortunately, as evidenced by his outfit, this card shows us that Michael Jordan cannot make everything look good.

2012 SP Authentic Sign of the Times Michael Jordan Autograph #STMJ

The first of several autographed Michael Jordan golf cards, Sign of the Times from SP Authentic is a reoccurring insert used by Upper Deck in many of their products. This rare card is part of the Group A autographs, which were pulled at of a rate of 1:2714 packs and featured five total signers. An ungraded version sold for just under $450 during March of 2013.

2012 SP Authentic Golf Parade of Stars Michael Jordan Autograph #/25

A very popular short print, this on-card autograph from Parade of Stars features a dialed-in Michael Jordan watching his shot. The card had several recorded sales on eBay during March and April of 2013, averaging around $650 per sale.

2012 SP Games Used Inked Drivers Michael Jordan #IDMJ Autograph

This very unique design made big waves when collectors first caught a glimpse. The card incorporates a slab of metal that is designed to resemble the club face of a driver. In the base silver version, Jordan signed using a blue pen. The print run was never announced but the Michael Jordan golf card was in Group B, along with four other golfers. The overall odds for Group B were 1:143 packs and the individual odds for the Jordan card fell at 1:715 packs. Other versions include Persimmon Blonde (#/15), Black (#/10), Red & White (#/5), and Persimmon Dark (#/3). All versions of this card sell very well.

  1. I have the 1994 “rare-air” card with Michael cleaning his clubs … but MY card is number 31 (not 32!?) Is that a misprint? Or … ?

    I appreciate anything you can share.

    Thanks!

    Paul

  2. Paul Lekang » Looks like an overlapping number error. The version with MJ cleaning his clubs is available as number 31 or 32.
