    1990 Michael Jordan Original Artwork by LeRoy Neiman. The two greatest practitioners of their respective fields of endeavor are linked by the presented lot, leading sports artist LeRoy Neiman's dynamic figure study of basketball's greatest star. Michael Jordan is captured in four separate poses during a battle with the New York Knicks, as Neiman states below his 1990 signature at bottom right, noting "Madison Square Garden '90." Verso is also signed, "By my hand, LeRoy Neiman," in black sharpie.

    The mixed media (watercolor and ink) work on artist's paper measures 14x18.5", elegantly matted and framed to final dimensions of 28x32". This one of a kind studio proof is reproduced on page fifty of the 2003 retrospective volume LeRoy Neiman, Five Decades, adding even greater appeal to a piece with no lack thereof.

    While the sports collectibles hobby has been inundated with countless lithographs, serigraphs and other various production pieces over the past twenty years, original works continue to draw the attention of savvy collectors and investors alike. This distinctive work picturing the most popular and widely recognized athlete of his generation is sure to bring them to the bidding table. A rare opportunity. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
