Michael Jordan Signed 1996-97 Chicago Bulls Game Issued Jersey JSA & MEARS COA


Offered here is a Michael Jordan jersey dating to MJ’s spectacular 1996-97 season. The Chicago Bulls shooting guard led the NBA in scoring, at 29.6 points per game, while adding 5.9 rebounds, 4.3 assists, and 1.7 steals per contest in the regular season. He led the Bulls to a 69-13 record, just three games behind their all-time 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 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.
