Quest Completed - My Holy Grail The 1986-87 Fleer Michael Jordan RC

I managed to scrape together some more money after my wife decided to do some house cleaning. After selling off some junk we had laying around, I was up to almost $1,100 dollars which was the price range I wanted to spend.

After adding every PSA 9 Jordan to my watch list, I noticed one that was hovering around the $850 mark with 12 hours to go. The only problem was that the seller only had 41 feedbacks. The upside was that they were all positive, and all from buyers. I messaged him to get more info on him and the card. Turns out he owns a card shop in Boca Raton, FL. I looked up the card shop on the online yellow pages and asked about the card (this was done more to verify the identity of the seller). After we talked, I decided to set my snipe. $1,050. It sat at the $850 mark until just a few minutes before the auction's ending. Then $915, $950, $955. I was getting nervous, but I knew I wasn't going to pay over $1050. I decided to just let my max bid stand.

At auction's end, I won it for $1,000 even. After shipping and insurance the total was $1,016. It was well worth the price to add this gem to my collection. Below are the scans...
