    1990's Michael Jordan Single Signed Basketball from the Robert C. Scarpetti Collection. Beautiful Spalding "NBA Indoor/Outdoor" basketball is signed "Best Wishes, Michael Jordan" on the panel directly above Spalding. The autograph is signed in vintage 10/10 black sharpie and the ball is Mint. The "best wishes" sentiment form Mike is a tough find in this format and, as such, tends to be a favorite among collectors. Letter of provenance from Robert Scarpetti.

    Note: PSA/DNA declined to authenticate this autograph, but this lot will be accompanied by a notarized letter of provenance from Robert Scarpetti, a former Chicago police detective who served as part of Jordan's six-man security detail for the entirety of his career with the Chicago Bulls (1984-95). Scarpetti attests that he personally witnessed Jordan sign this item.
