Michael Jordan Final Chicago Bulls Regular Season Game-Used Jersey

By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor

The jersey Michael Jordan wore in his last regular season game for the Chicago Bulls sold for $173,240 over the weekend. In doing so, it set a record for game-used Michael Jordan memorabilia.

The previous record was set in December, 2013 for the shoes Jordan wore in the infamous Flu Game in Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals. They went for $104,765.

Goldin Auctions sold the jersey, which is also signed, to an unnamed buyer.

Jordan wore the jersey on April 18, 1998 during a 111-109 win against the New York Knicks. In typical Jordan fashion, he drained 44 points in the win.

The jersey is backed up by a lot of provenance. It comes with a letter of authenticity from the Chicago Bulls from when it was originally purchased from the team in 2004. MeiGray has also photo-matched the jersey for additional documentation. The autograph is certified by Upper Deck Authenticated.

This wasn’t the only piece of Michael Jordan game-used memorabilia to sell during Goldin’s October Legends and Americana sale. A pair of signed Air Jordan XI sneakers worn by Jordan in Game 3 of the 1996 NBA Finals went for $34,160.

A partial uncut sheet from the 1952 Topps Baseball High Series with both a Mickey Mantle and Jackie Robinson closed at $86,620. A PSA 6 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle sold for $81,740.
