    1997-98 Michael Jordan Game Worn Chicago Bulls Jersey. 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.

    If there was ever a jersey worthy of a home in Springfield, it's this one. "Bulls 23" is sewn to the chest in red and black tackle twill, giving way to "Jordan 23" on verso. The player name letters are correct at 3" in height. It should be noted that the positioning drop of the name on back is critical in differentiating game worn jerseys from the "Pro Cut" versions, which often are mistaken for gamers. While the wear of the jersey is light, this is not abnormal for a Michael Jordan representation. There is slight puckering in the two color numerals and tagging. In determining game authenticity of a jersey of this ilk, there is usually an inconsistency or two or three in the areas of numeral and letter font, size, positioning, yoke cut, arm/neck trim, tagging, etc. All are correct here. Jersey was originally purchased from Jimmy MacKinnon, nephew of Bob MacKinnon, who has been involved in coaching at both the collegiate and pro level for almost 45 years. A quality representation of America's greatest athlete from his final season in Chicago. LOA from MEARS, A5. LOA from Heritage Auctions. LOA from Jimmy MacKinnon.
