Welcome to the Hottest Sports Cards, the NEW blog series that gives you the latest on GoCollect's sales data across baseball, basketball and football cards. Rather than relying on fair market values and ballooning price tags, these rankings are focused purely on the sales volume. What you will find below are the sports cards that had the most upward momentum during the past 30 days.

What's hot this month? Well, it's clear that we all like Mike.

During the past month, the ten hottest cards by sales volume were all Michael Jordan cards.

On GoCollect's Market Overview for Sports Cards, GoCollect ranks the hottest sports cards by sales volume across three different sports: baseball, basketball, and football. It also ranks sports cards across all three sports. When we review the hottest cards across all three sports, one common theme jumps out immediately -- Michael Jordan is clearly the GOAT. Remarkably, the top 10 hottest cards by sales volume are ALL Michael Jordan cards.

It's no surprise that Michael Jordan's 1986 Fleer rookie card is ranked No. 1 during the past 30 days. This card was also ranked No. 1 last month as well. This card would be considered the crown jewel of many collectors's collections, but the card is so expensive that many simply can't afford it. The 30-day average for a PSA 9.0 is a whopping $21,062 according to GoCollect.

Jordan's Fleer Stickers #8 is new to the Hottest Sports Cards list this month.

Many of the other MJ cards in this month's rankings are more affordable alternatives. For instance, let's take a look at the Michael Jordan 1986 Fleer Stickers card #8. His 1986 Fleer rookie wasn't Jordan's only card in the 1986 Fleer basketball set. This set also included a set of sticker cards including one featuring MJ. Because so many children peeled the stickers off of the original cards, they are now difficult to find in high-grade.

I actually love this card/sticker since we see Michael's trademark tongue hang, and we have a clear view of the iconic Air Jordan 1s he's wearing. Even though this card was also included in the 1986 Fleer Basketball set, it is MUCH more affordable than card #57. For example, while a PSA 9.0 of #57 is valued around $20,000, a PSA 9.0 of a Fleer Stickers #8 is worth only around $4,223 according to GoCollect. Considering both were released in the same set, that large of a difference in value is a bit surprising. Perhaps #57 is over-valued or Fleer Stickers #8 is undervalued? Perhaps both could be true?

The Michael Jordan 1998 Flair Showcase #13 moved up 25 spots to #7 this month.

One card that made the biggest leap was Jordan's 1998 Flair Showcase #13 which jumped an impressive 25 spots to #7 on the Hottest Sports Cards rankings. According to GoCollect, a PSA 9.0 of this card actually sells for a bit more than a 9.0 of Jordan's 1986 Fleer Sticker card (which may also be evidence that the Fleer Sticker card may be undervalued). About two months ago, this 1998 Flair Showcase #13 sold on eBay for an impressive $4,750 after receiving 58 bids:
