For all of the collectors who have been clammering for the “next” Michael Jordan to arrive on the NBA scene, Upper Deck has come up with the next best thing to his Jordan himself.
With the release of its 2006-07 NBA Fleer Basketball set, collectors will have a chance to get a hold of an autographed Jordan rookie card. Upper Deck has purchased a number of Jordan rookies from the original 1986 Fleer set and had Jordan sign them. The cards will then be inserted into the 2006-07 set, which is scheduled to release in early 2007. The set will feature 10 cards per pack and 36 packs per box with the price to be determined.
