After leading the Michigan State Spartans to the 1979 NCAA Championship, Earvin "Magic" Johnson Jr. was the first overall pick by the Los Angeles Lakers in the 1979 NBA Draft. Magic led the Lakers to a championship 5 times, winning the NBA Finals MVP three of those times. He was also a three-time NBA MVP and 12-time NBA All-Star.

 

With an incredible basketball IQ and masterful court vision, Magic is one of the most prominent facilitators in NBA history and arguably the greatest point guard of all time. Magic's number 32 uniform was retired by the Lakers on February 16, 1992, and later inducted into the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame in 2002.

 

While this card is not necessarily considered Magic’s “rookie card” (a distinction often given to a three-panel card from a year earlier which Magic shared with Larry Bird and Dr. J), this card is coveted by collectors for being Magic’s first “solo” card.


Thesis
Magic Johnson was one of the most electrifying players to ever play in the NBA. Fitting to his name, Johnson made “magic” on the court, winning 5 NBA Championship titles throughout the 1980s. In addition to his legacy as a Laker, he is immortalized as a member of the 1992 Olympic “Dream Team”--a squad often referred to as the best basketball team ever assembled. Johnson was inducted into the Hall-of-Fame two times; once for his personal accomplishments as a player, and again for his involvement with the Dream Team. Remembered as a true icon, these sneakers represent the first season Magic won league MVP and his 4th NBA title.
The Card
Although not technically his rookie card, the 1981 Topps set was the first time players like Magic Johnson or Larry Bird got their own dedicated cards, making this card an important milestone for Johnson. Only 72 have earned a PSA 10 grade.
Recent Sales
The most recent sale of this card in a PSA 10 was for $59,040 in March 2021, which is also the 12-month high. The 12-month low was for $3,119 in May 2020.
Macro
PWCC tracks an index of the Top 100 sports cards, and notes a Return on Investment of 313% from 2008-2020, outperforming the S&P 500 by 178%.
Risk
Despite still maintaining close ties with the Lakers, Magic Johnson is no longer an active player. Limited future catalysts or declining overall relevance could negatively impact the value of his cards.
