Was there a better time to be a basketball fan than the mid-to-late ’90s? This was the reign of Michael Jordan, a GOAT before the term GOAT was even invented. Think of the 1998 NBA Finals. This was Jordan’s last season with the Bulls and his sixth championship. He won MVP that year. This was the Bulls’ second 3-peat. It was a good year to be a Chicagoan.
Now, you have the chance to own a bit of sports history with Sotheby’s. They’re auctioning off the jersey Jordan wore during Game 1 of the championship – and the Sports Illustrated June Cover later that year. Along with the jersey, you’ll get a certificate of authenticity and an original copy of the mag to go with your winnings. All for the low, low price of an estimated bid at $3,000,000.
The auction starts September 6, but you can view the listing now.
