SCP Auctions: 


The Chicago Bulls shooting guard led the NBA in scoring that year at 29.6 points per game while adding 5.9 rebounds, 4.3 assists, and 1.7 steals per contest. Jordan led the Bulls to a 69-13 record, just three games behind their record win total from the season prior. Jordan upped his game in the playoffs, dropping 31.1 points per game with 7.9 rebounds and 4.8 assists. The Bulls swept the Washington Bullets in the first round of the playoffs before dispatching the Atlanta Hawks and Miami Heat in five games apiece in the next two series. Jordan was, unsurprisingly, the difference for the Bulls in their six-game victory over the Utah Jazz in the Finals. Jordan’s most significant moment came in Game 5, “The Flu Game,” when Jordan dropped 38 points over the Jazz in Chicago’s 90-88 victory, despite playing the game with a bad case of the flu.

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
