The Jordan Collection Part 4: 1996 NBA Jam Session Die Cut

What's better than a tall Michael Jordan card? A die cut tall Jordan card of course. This die cut Jordan card is from the '96 NBA Jam Session product put out by the former Fleer/SkyBox trading card company. The die cut cards were inserted into packs at a rate of 1:1. So this isn't the rarest Jordan die cut ever, but purchasing a box of Jam Session doesn't necessarily guarantee the buyer one of these Jordan die cuts.

There are currently no Jam Session Jordan die cuts on eBay, and there was only one sold on eBay over the last two weeks (click here). If you clicked on the link, you'll notice the very modest $2.29 completed auction price. That's pretty inexpensive for a fun Jordan card like this one.

The Jam Session cards were a nice novelty during the mid 90's. They were very popular when they first were released, but fizzled quickly. I'm a huge fan of the Show Stoppers insert set from the '96 Jam Session product. However, this Jordan card is cool as well. I obviously like the jagged die cut pattern, but I also really appreciate the green outline used to highlight the uneven edges. Also, how can you go wrong with Jordan? You can't.

This is only the fourth post in The Jordan Collection series. I'll try to post these more frequently since Bloggers' stat feature indicates that many collectors are reading these posts. So stay tuned for more Jordan items from my collection and make sure to… "Enjoy Every Bounce of the Ball".


  1. Sweet card.

    Do you have any '80 Jordans in the collection?

  2. Thanks, I have a few late 80's. I'll post an '85 Star Company Jordan sub set card in a week.

  3. Sweet card. Hate Jordan for what he did to my Knicks, but nice card nonetheless.

  4. I don't remember this set... but any oversized Jordan is an awesome Jordan. Looking forward to seeing future Jordans.

    Btw... Charles... email me your address and I'll get that Packers Police set shipped out to you. I have a bunch of Bills cards I've been picking up for you too.
