Lot # 1086 (of 1389)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1980-1981 Topps Basketball Bird/Erving/Johnson PSA/DNA MINT 9 - Signed by All Three Players!

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $720

The 1980 Topps basketball issue will always be remembered for its unique three-panel perforated strips. While that design resulted in some confusion to collectors looking to assemble a complete set, it was also responsible for the production of what is arguably the most significant basketball card in the hobby: the Larry Bird/Julius Erving/Magic Johnson card, featuring the rookie cards for both Bird and Johnson. Offered here is a rare and highly prized signed example of that historic card that has been encapsulated by PSA/DNA. All three players have signed the card in blue Sharpie upon their respective images, with the signatures having been graded "MINT 9" by PSA/DNA (only the signatures were graded by the company, not the card). The card displays only a hint of minor edge wear and is in Excellent condition overall. We have seen very few signed examples over the years and this is just the second that we have ever offered. LOA from James Spence/JSA. SOLD FOR $720
