A game-worn Michael Jordan jersey worn during his NBA championship-winning 1997 season is hitting the auction block and if we all consolidate our stimulus checks, we can throw in an offer.
According to Goldin Auctions, the black and red pinstripe uniform was “matched to the April 13, 1997 game by Resolution Photomatching, where the Bulls lost on the road to the Detroit Pistons 108-91 and Jordan scored 18 points.”
This was a shitty game for Jordan, who played all 82 regular season games in ’96-’97 and averaged 29.6 points per contest. Game highlights can be found here.
Auctioneers are expecting the game-worn jersey to fetch over $250,000, which is far from a stretch seeing as a 1986 MJ rookie card (1 of only 312 cards in perfect condition) just sold for $96,000 at an auction.
