    1997-98 Karl Malone Game Worn Utah Jazz Jersey. "Every day I don't build myself up, I know there is somebody out there trying to tear me down." - Karl Malone

    Karl Malone's work ethic and Adonis-like physique redefined the meaning of power forward, adding an inside-out scoring ability and blinding quickness skill set to the standard prerequisites of defensive toughness and rebounding, which the position traditionally required. It was like stepping from a by-plane into the space shuttle.

    Strictly 'special delivery' for nineteen NBA seasons, The Mailman averaged 25.0 points and 10.1 rebounds over that tenure. A testament to durability and being prepared, in his first eighteen seasons, he missed only ten games. In the 1996-97 and 1998-99 seasons, he added extra postage which earned him two MVP awards.

    On offer here is Karl's gamer from the 1997-98 season when his 27.0 points per game led the Jazz to the NBA Finals. Funky, road purple mesh comes alive with a cornucopia of colors. The Rocky Mountains backdrop, trim, and team/player identifiers appear in purple/white/blue/green/brown with correct size/year/extra length tagging in attendance. Displays light game wear. LOA from MEARS, A5. LOA from Heritage Auctions.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $2,000 - up.
