Here’s a crazy story — Dominique Wilkins opened a pack of old NBA cards recently … and as luck would have it, he pulled his own rookie card!!
The whole thing was documented on video … when the Hawks legend joined OTIA Sports CEO Jason Koonce to break an unopened batch of 1986 Fleer basketball cards in hopes of finding a Michael Jordan rookie in the pack.
FYI — the ’86 Fleer set is filled with a ton of rookie cards of that era … including MJ, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Hakeem Olajuwon and, of course, Dominique Wilkins.
The pull was pretty cool — the Human Highlight Film reminisced about playing against several players as he revealed the deck … which featured big names like Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Bill Walton.
Once Wilkins came across his own face, the group of guys started freaking out … with Koonce swearing up and down the card was not planted.
“This was sealed, this was not planned,” Koonce said in the video. “That is insane.”
“On my kid’s life, that was not set up!”
The card could be pretty valuable depending on its condition … some in great shape are currently listed online for thousands of dollars!!
Sorry ya didn’t pull an MJ, Dominique … but you were a pretty damn good player, too!!
