Did you know?

In September of 2001, Jordan came back from his second retirement and announced that he would return to NBA to play with the Washington Wizards. During his time with the Wizards, Jordan passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the all-time leading scorer in All-Star Game history (a record that only LeBron James and Kobe Bryant have since broken). On December 29, 2001, Jordan scored 51 points against the Charlotte Hornets to become the oldest player in NBA history to reach the 50-point threshold in a game.

By the time Michael Jordan retired, he was a 6 time NBA champion, a 6 time NBA Finals MVP, a 5 time NBA Most Valuable Player, a 14 time All-Star, a 3 time NBA All-Star Game MVP, a 10 time scoring champion and a 2 time Slam Dunk Contest Champion. He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2016, among the highest civilian awards in the United States.

Michael Jordan is today widely considered as one of the greatest athletes in American history, and Sotheby’s is excited to offer this item to honor the ongoing legacy of Mr. Jordan.
