NFTs vs the real thing. I would rather have a Jordan 1986 Fleer Rookie
One of the holy grails of card collecting is the Michael Jordan 1986 Fleer Rookie. Michael only had one rookie card because it was 1986. Other more recent players like Kobe had dozens of rookies cards. With Mike, you know which card and its the 1986 Fleer. I purchased one a few months ago that was graded a 7. Sports cards are rated 1-10 and there are two main bodies that rate the cards. Once the card is graded, it gets sealed in a plastic case so that it will be protected and you can now trade and sell it using the grade as proof the card is legit.
I am sure that there will be a Michael Jordan NFT. It will probably sell for hundreds of thousands if not millions. I just question the value of a digital collectible when the real thing can be purchased in the 4 digit range. I would rather have an actual card. Its much harder to lose an actual card. You don't need passwords or hardware wallets. You can even insure the baskeball card and get a new one if you lose it or fuck it up.
I am not aware of insurance that covers the loss of an NFT yet.
