Air Jordan XX3: “Chicago” – Michael Jordan Autograph Available on eBay

Air Jordan XX3: Chicago   Michael Jordan Autograph Available on eBay

The Air Jordan 23 had to be a memorable silhouette for the Jordan signature series given the number that it represents, and JB didn’t disappoint with an intricate design that looks to hold up through the test of time. While sneakers like the “Titanium” edition and “Finale” were reserved for incredibly limited releases (the Air Jordan 23 “Titanium” alone would only see 529 pairs) today we get a look at a very special “Chicago” pair. The shoe that features the colorway of the Bulls in a Home aesthetic may have released in a wider rendition than the aforementioned pairs, but with Mike’s signature, this is a rare find to say the least. Hit the click for a better view and grab it today via worldofstarsplus on eBay.

Vintage Gear: 30,000 Points Patch Michael Jordan Autographed Wizards Jersey

Vintage Gear: 30,000 Points Patch Michael Jordan Autographed Wizards Jersey

Although his time with the Wizards is primarily forgotten in the grand scheme of things, his time in Washington as a part-owner turned player did serve as a significant bench mark for a couple of reasons. Not only did MJ still prove that he could hoop, (he reached over 40 points on a number of occasions and had the Wizards contending for a playoff position each season) but he also surpassed the 30,000 point mark, an achievement only matched by four other players in history. Today we get a very rare vintage gear in the form of this signed home edition of a Washington Wizards jersey that features a 30,000 point patch with the date His Airness reached the feat: January 2nd, 2002. Be sure to check out more images of this find in our gallery, and if you have any intentions of owning this piece of MJ memorabilia know that the item is available today via djteshno on eBay.

Vintage Gear: Michael Jordan Game Issued Olympic “Dream Team” Away Uniform

Vintage Gear: Michael Jordan Game Issued Olympic Dream Team Away Uniform

In 1992, the Olympic committee voted to allow professional players belonging to the NBA to participate in the Barcelona Olympics and in doing so, opened the floodgates of basketball’s popularity potential worldwide when Michael Jordan and a bevy of stars suited up for America for the first time. Today’s vintage gear takes us back to one of the most influential sports teams in history with this game issued (meaning that it hung in MJ’s locker and was either used for a photo opportunity or a backup) uniform set complete with Michael Jordan’s signature on his number 9 jersey. The stars avoided wearing their regular numbers to avoid player’s doubling up on numbers, and the tradition has continued today. Still in pristine condition, the set is the less popular Away jersey in navy blue (the American team was the top-seed and that meant their number of home games in the tournament allowed them to wear their white set more often). Be sure to check out this rare 1992 Barcelona Olympic find in the gallery, and if you have the extra $10,000 hanging around your bank account to pick up this exclusive piece of Michael Jordan memorabilia, then pick it up today via sdb23 on eBay.

Michael Jordan’s Mom Disputes Authenticity of UNC Recruitment Letters

Michael Jordans Mom Disputes Authenticity of UNC Recruitment Letters

A few weeks ago news of Michael Jordan’s official transcript at the University of North Carolina along with his original letters of recruitment were found in an abandon storage unit and made their way to auction. Of the most interesting finds, a personalized note by legendary Tar Heels head coach Dean Smith was included (which may or may not have led to Michael Jordan’s enrollment at the University). It’s safe to say that if these rare pieces of MJ memorabilia are authentic, and at the time of the news they were deemed official, that they are set to be sold off for an exorbitant fee. Now, the documents have come into question by none other than Michael Jordan’s own mother, Deloris Jordan, claiming that the letters are replicas and that she has the official documents herself. Current bids for the diploma are at $8,250 while the letters from Dean Smith and Assistant Coach Guthridge range from $11,794 and $2,500 respectively. Hit the click to get a full synopsis of the situation via ESPN and let us know your thoughts on the potential counterfeiting of Michael Jordan documents in the comments.

Grey Flannel Auctions rolled out all of the stops to promote the the shoes, including releasing the original details about how the shoes were acquired by the Jazz ball boy (an interesting tale dealing with the specific request for some apple sauce).

What do you think of the final bidding price for the historic shoes?
