Collector of The Week – A Michael Jordan Gold Basketball Card Set 

A new week means a new post for Collector of the Week here at The Art of Fatherhood. As a fellow geek and collector of all things Pop Culture I wanted to showcase some cool collections that dads and families share in our community. I love to see the passion in what people collect. In addition, we talk about the latest movies, sports memorabilia, a Michael Jordan Gold Basketball card set and video games that we are enjoying at the moment.

This Week’s Collector – A Michael Jordan Gold Basketball Card Set

This week’s collector is from me. Here is my story on this collection. 

Growing up in the late 80s and early 90s in the Chicago area is how I became a Bulls fan. Michael Jordan is my favorite basketball player. So of course I was always looking to get Jordan cards when I was collecting basketball cards. This Gatorade Michael Jordan Gold Card Set is 12 oversized cards manufactured by Upper Deck. It highlights Jordan from 1985-1997. In addition, there was no 1994 card made for this set. Each year highlights certain milestones in each year. It is a pretty sweet set that I was able to get back in the day that was added to my Jordan card collection. Additionally, this set is a great way to show the evolution of Jordan’s game.

I hope you enjoyed my collection. Feel free to reach out if you want to share your collection over here at The Art of Fatherhood. 

Whatcha Got? 

It can be comic books, bottle caps, records, helmets or whatever you are into! I want to see what your passion is and why you started up that collection. For me, I believe that in each collection lies a better story. Therefore, I want to share your story! Feel free to reach out to me and share your collection.  In addition, if you enjoyed this post check out another Collector of the Week article.

    • Oh no! That stinks. I feel like a lot of parents threw things out or sold them at garage sales. I get emails from people sharing comments similar to yours.
