It all ended with a fade-away jumper in Game Six of the NBA Finals, perhaps Air Jordan's most defining moment, earning the Chicago Bulls their sixth and final NBA Championship under his leadership. The following year found this legendary team scattered to the wind, and Jordan claiming retirement, but this monumentally important home white mesh gamer lives on to help us remember the magic. The offered jersey derives from a season that saw Jordan do far more than bring home yet another World Championship, as he tallied his third straight scoring title and tenth overall, his second triple crown with his fifth MVP award, third all-star game MVP, and sixth Finals MVP award.

This timeless home white Chicago Bulls uniform (jersey and shorts) was worn by the greatest basketball player of all-time during that last, triumphant season. The white mesh jersey features “BULLS” sewn across the chest in red-on-black tackle twill. Jordan’s iconic number “23” is sewn on the front and back of the jersey in red-on-black tackle twill. “JORDAN” is sewn across the back shoulders in red-on-black tackle twill. An NBA logo patch is sewn on the upper left chest of the jersey. Red, black, and white bands ring the sleeve openings and the collar. A Nike size 48 tag, flanked by “NBA AUTHENTICS” and “Chicago Bulls” logo tags are sewn on the front left tail of the jersey. The Nike tag has a “LENGTH +4” flag attached. Sewn on the interior is a white Nike tag with “1997-98” printed in black. Jordan has signed his name diagonally on the “2” on the front in bold black marker.

The matching white mesh shorts have red and black accents. Bulls logo patches are sewn on each leg on the red diamond area that has black and white borders, with an NBA logo patch sewn on the right front leg. A Nike size 42 tag is sewn on the inside of the waistband with Jordan’s number “23” handwritten in black marker. An “INSEAM +2”, washing instructions and “1997-98” flags are attached to the Nike tag, which has the “NBA AUTHENTICS” tag on the left and “Chicago Bulls” logo tag on the right. The waist and leg ends have red/black/white/black/red striping. Both the jersey and shorts come with a LOA from the Chicago Bulls, authenticating that Michael Jordan wore this uniform during the 1997-98 season. Additionally, there is a LOA from MEARS for the game use, who have graded this jersey its highest grade of A10 along with a Letter of Authenticity from Sports Investors Authentication. Finally, the autograph is verified with a full Letter of Authenticity from the experts at Beckett Authentication Services (BAS).
