    1996-97 Michael Jordan N.B.A. Finals Game Worn Jersey. While any Chicago Bulls jersey sanctified by the touch of His Airness is worthy of respect and awe, the appearance of one that saw action on basketball's greatest stage carries the appeal to an unearthly realm. Here we present one of the finest Jordan gamers ever made available for public sale, worn as the greatest basketball player of all time steered his Windy City club to their fifth World Championship under his command. In most respects, this historic shirt presents identically to those we much more typically see: "Bulls 23" is sewn in black and white tackle twill on the chest, with "Jordan 23" doing time on verso. The proper labeling in tail has "96-97 Bulls Exclusivity" tag in tail with "Body Length +3" identifier. "Champion [size] 46" label is to the right. But the two small patches at the upper shoulders set this monumental offering apart. At upper right is the patch of the N.B.A. Championship Finals, never made available for public consumption and only seen on authentic Finals gamers. And the upper left features the NBA logo in gold, making note of the Fiftieth Anniversary of the league, which notably saw Jordan named as one of the fifty greatest players of all time. Any jersey featuring this golden logo is exceedingly difficult to come by, much less a Finals jersey by the game's greatest star. Wear is appropriately light but definite for a jersey that saw use only at the thrilling climax of yet another dominant season. Picture perfect in every way, this is one of only a tiny handful of Jordan playoff jerseys ever to reach the auction block, and as such should find a home in only the most serious basketball collection. LOA from Lou Lampson.
