From when I collected back in the 86-87, I bought an 86-87 Fleer Basketball complete set (which was collated and actually, they messed up and put two Dominiqe Wilkens).

Since it is hand collated and not "factory Sealed", should I get my Jordan professional graded?

If it's real, it's definitely worth grading in almost any condition. That card was heavily counterfeited back in the day, so my advice is to post a scan so we can authenticate it first. There are some very easy to tell differences between the counterfeit one and a real one. Got a scan?

Here's some info on how to spot the fake...

The first thing I always look at is the "Fleer Premier" logo. That's the easiest to spot, even with a bad scan.

How do I post the picture I took with a camara?

Going by all those things, it is definatly real. I knew it was, I bought it literally during the 86-87 season. I remember it well.

The picture I took stinks, but it does show the clearity of the Fleer logo and the clearity of the "Michael Jordan".

So how much does it cost to "Grade" and how do I go about doing it? Should I go to a dealer in town and ask his assistance?

If you've checked it against all the indicators and it's good, probably no need to post a pic. Besides, if you purchased yours in 1986-87 then you're good because they weren't counterfeited until about 5 years later - I beleive 1991 was the first year I saw one,

You can do an on-line submission with SGC. IMO, you should use the "Grand Slam" service which is $25 with a 5 day turnaround.
