23/23 Michael Jordan JSY Serial - Must See

**Auction #6, Round 2** Presented here is an earth shattering, late career Michael Jordan autograph jersey example which could very well be classified as a holy grail piece. In 2001, at the age of 38, Michael Jordan came out of retirement for the second time to help rejuvenate the Washington Wizards; a team that he was president and minority owner of. During his two-year tenure with the team, he finished out his career with an average 21.4 PPG and 5.9 TRB. Truly unimaginable given his age and the fact that he did not play basketball for three years prior. Truly a living day immortal who is incomparable and irreplaceable. The offered masterpiece lies firmly within a coveted Beckett 9.5 holder and oh boy is it special. Firstly, we want to highlight that this is a one-of-one, jersey number 23/23 example. We really do not need to stress just how important these jersey number examples are to the market; especially when it features 'His Airness'. On top of this incredible quality, the card is perfectly maintained with four untouched corners, faultless edges, and fabulous centering. Clean borders with thick gloss and stunning registration. In addition, the jersey swatch is a brilliant, solid white example. Finally, equally as important as a high-grade assessment and a jersey number serial, the autograph has been assessed as pristine and is struck directly on the card in blue ink. From the very beginning, Michael Jordan partnered with Nike to create a worldwide brand, "Air Jordan", that far surpassed those of his contemporaries. The Air Jordan brand became synonymous with Basketball and made everyone want to 'Be Like Mike'. To this day, Michael Jordan is a household name and perhaps the most recognized athlete in the world. As the trading card marketplace matures towards its destiny as a leading alternative asset class, it is cards like this that seem positioned to ascend towards a status competitive with present-day fine art markets.
