Confirm or Debunk: 1990-91 Fleer Dan Majerle #150A “1988”

28 Nov

Periodically, I’ll be posting short blogs about cards (usually errors or variations) that are listed in the major price guides like Beckett and SCD that I have yet to confirm whether they actually exist or not. There is a pretty lengthy list but since I’ve recently been able to confirm the existence of another 1990-91 Fleer Basketball variation, I figure that this card deserves some focus tonight:

1990-91 Fleer Dan Majerle #150A with “award in 1988.” in text on back.

(corrected version #150b)

The Beckett annual price guide lists this card, yet I have never found one in all my travels. I’ve always checked the back of this card whenever Ive come across one and they always say “award in 1989” on back. Several collectors have messaged me over the years asking if I have a copy for sale and many more have had it listed in their wantlists that they would email to me – this is usually an indicator of one of two things: It doesnt exist or exists in such low quantity (if in any quantity) that it may possibly be a proof or it’s just that rare. To add to the mystery, I’ve purchased several copies of this card from dealers via, naxcom (sportsbuy), etc and a refund for them always followed shortly after.

Can anyone confirm this card exists? Maybe a Majerle collector has some info on it? If you have a scan of one, please send me a message or post a link in the comments section, I’ll gladly repost it in this blog with a “Confirmed by” credit to you.

    I also have looked far and wide for this card. I can’t seem to find it for the life of me. Have you had any luck since the post.

    Hello, I’m a Majerle collector for years and never find one. I ask Beckett twice and they answer without answering. They said it’s on the list. I’m still looking for it. But as you said maybe it was made in low quantity and maybe people trow the card in the trash. I’m looking for it desesperatly. Contact me if you find one. Thanks

    Hi, did you ever get the photo you asked CJ for in 2018?

    The Michael Jordan in this set can appear with or without a print spot on the bottom-left of the boxy part of the name banner. Found a couple in my collection and plenty can also be found on Ebay. I’m not sure if there are more of one than the other.

    i have been looking for this card also, ever since i was a kid and started collecting with this set. Plus i have been looking for the dennis rodman and kevin johnson 1990-91 skybox errors.
