Are you a diehard Bulls fan? Sucker for Michael Jordan nostalgia? Got $500,000 lying around?
Well, today might just be your lucky day.
According to a report from TMZ Sports, Goldin Auctions is putting a game-worn Jordan jersey from Games 3 and 4 of the 1998 Eastern Conference finals on the block this summer - and it's expected to sell for $500,000. Ken Goldin, founder of Goldin Auctions, told TMZ he expects the jersey to break the record for "most valuable Jordan jersey ever sold."
Jordan's lines from those games:
Game 3: 30 points (9-for-22 FG, 2-for-3 3P), 7 assists, 4 rebounds
Game 4: 28 points (12-for-27 FG, 1-for-3 3P), 2 assists, 5 rebounds
While the Bulls lost both contests by two points apiece, they went on to win that series in seven games and epic fashion. From there, a six-game victory over the Utah Jazz clinched their sixth and final title of the dynasty. But you knew all that already.
Jordan and those Bulls' influence evidently endures to this day - on television screens across the world in the form of "The Last Dance" and on the auction market.
