When Michael Jordan returned to basketball (for the 2nd time) after a three-year "retirement" in which he became part owner and President of Operations of the Washington Wizards, it was as if the “His Airness” didn’t miss a beat. Even at the "old" (for an athlete) age of 38, Jordan still found a way to dominate on the hardwood, averaging 22.9 points for his own Wizards during the 2001-02 season. This white heavy mesh Wizards home jersey was used by Jordan for that comeback season, and shows moderate game use. The right chest of the jersey features a 9/11 memorial ribbon and American flag embroidered in red, white and blue stitching. “WIZARDS” appears across the chest in blue on brown-and-black tackle twill, with “JORDAN” across the back in blue-on-brown tackle twill. Jordan’s famed number “23” is found on both sides of the jersey in blue on brown-and-black tackle twill. The front tail of the jersey features a “Nike” manufacturer’s tag, size 50, and boasts an affixed “LENGTH +4” tag indicating size modifications, which are consistent with Jordan gamers. A fantastic game used jersey hearkening not only to Jordan's unexpected return to the court, but also appropriately commemorating that year's 9/11 terrorist attacks as we have just passed the 15 year anniversary of that fateful day. Accompanied by a full Letter of Authenticity from Grey Flannel Auctions.
