"Precious" is an understatement when it comes to this 2008 SkyBox Metal Universe Precious Metal Gems (PMG) Green #23 Michael Jordan card. It is important to note that that these PMG cards are extremely condition-sensitive as the surface is notorious for peeling, which makes this PSA GEM MINT 10 phenomenon truly unique. The fact that this is POP 1-of-1 on the PSA registry is only the start, as this is actually the ONLY 2008 Metal Universe Green with this grade for ANY player. For reference, the set contains 100 players with a print run of 10 each, meaning that out of 1,000 such 2008 PMG Green cards that exist, this is the lone perfect specimen graded to date. This specific card is the most important Jordan PMG other than the 1997 PMG Greens, and even more important than the 1997 PMG Reds. There are also no BGS 10s or BGS 10 Black Labels for any player in the 2008 SkyBox Metal Universe PMG Green set, making this MJ the highest graded 2008 SkyBox Metal Universe PMG Green in the world of any player. Numbered 08/50 on the back, but only the first 10 are PMG Greens, while the remaining 40 are PMG reds. When there is that much to appreciate before even getting to the iconic Michael Jordan himself, it becomes clear that this is an extraordinary opportunity to acquire an elite specimen that deserves its place among the best hoops cards to ever come to market.

Estimate: $250,000-$300,000
