1980’s Star Basketball - fake production insight
“With limited, location-based distribution, the Star XRC is by far the rarest of all Jordan RC's. It may also be the most controversial. Following the discovery by U.S. Marshalls of over 125,000 Star cards believed to be fakes, PSA refused to grade the cards.”
Fortunately I bought them when they came out. I was irate when this scheme was made public back in the 90’s. These original cards were destined for staggering values.
When you see a little more detail on what might have been (125K fake production!) you have to understand why everyone is not bought in..even with authentication .
