Hoopography Top 25 PC Countdown: #10

(1985 Star Co. Slam Dunk Supers Group Photo/Checklist)
The top 10 of the Hoopography Top 25 PC Countdown is finally here with a gem from the mid 80's! This 1985 Star Co. Slam Dunk Supers Group Photo/Checklist card is a Star Co. card from Michael Jordan's rookie year. It also includes some of the best high flyers of the 80's including Clyde Drexler, Julius Erving and Dominique Wilkins. Oh, and the card is also a giant 5 x 7 inch goliath. Total Awesomeness!

The Star Co. cards are some of my personal favorites, just not my wallet's favorites. They feature bold colors and some pretty decent photography. The Slam Dunk Supers set had a total of nine singles player cards of the participants from the '85 NBA Slam Dunk Contest plus this group photo for a total of ten cards. The set has a book value of $200. Much of that value is tied up in the Jordan, but the group photo card that occupies the #10 spot on the countdown has a respectable $40 book value. I've seen these group photo cards all over the price spectrum on the secondary markets like eBay, but here's a crazy Buy Now eBay auction (click here).

So what do you think, does this '85 Star Co. Slam Dunk Supers Group Photo/Checklist card deserve the #10 spot on the Hoopography Top 25 PC Countdown? Stay tuned to future posts for the rest of the top 10 in the countdown!


  1. Odd,I've never seen this card before. It's a good one though.

    This is your top 25, if you feel it belongs in the top ten, then it really does belong there.

  2. A 5x7 Star Co. card from Jordan's rookie season? Heck yeah it belongs in your top 10... Another "I want this" card. Can't wait to see what else is coming.
