MJ’s final Wizards jersey could sell for $500,000 on auction originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
The last jersey Michael Jordan ever wore in an NBA is set to go up for auction and it could bring in a lot of money.
The item for sale is Jordan’s blue Wizards jersey he wore in the final game of his career in 2003. It turns out he wore the same jersey for the last two months of that season and it could bring as much as $500,000, according to TMZ.
In his last NBA game, Jordan scored 15 points, grabbed four rebounds and dished out four assists in a loss to Allen Iverson and the Sixers.
What’s even better is the story reportedly behind the owner of the jersey. According to TMZ, when he entered the league in 1984, Jordan met the owner of a limousine service and became close with him over the course of his career.
So when Jordan took off his Wizards’ jersey for the final time, he gifted it to the limousine owner. After 17 years, he’s decided to sell the signed collectible.
Along with the jersey, which is scheduled to go to auction on November 23, more rare Jordan collectibles are set to go on sale as well. The collection includes a signed pair of Air Jordan 1’s from Jordan’s rookie season and a signed, game-worn Birmingham Barons jersey from his days in minor league baseball.
The three items together are valued over $1 million.
