The 1997-98 season saw Michael Jordan bringing the second phase of his extraordinary career to a close. Not one to fade away gradually, Jordan played as if he were 10 years younger, averaging 28.7 points a game and leading the Bulls to another NBA Championship. His 2-point jump shot with 5 seconds left to play all but destroyed the morale of the Utah Jazz as the Bulls completed the last of their second “Three-peat” NBA Championship runs. The final laurel awarded to Michael Jordan was the honor of being named the Sporting News NBA Player of the Year for 1997-98. Jordan had previously won this prestigious award six times and this one, his seventh, would be the last of his Hall of Fame career. The lead crystal award was crafted by Tiffany & Co. and is etched with “NBA PLAYER OF THE YEAR 1997-98 MICHAEL JORDAN CHICAGO BULLS.” The crystal is mounted on a black base on which an etched plaque repeats “NBA PLAYER OF THE YEAR 1997-98 MICHAEL JORDAN CHICAGO BULLS.” The award measures 14 inches tall with a 7 x 2 x 3 3/4 inch base and is in very good condition with minimal wear from display and age. Examples of this coveted award rarely appear on the public marketplace, and to find one whose recipient is a player of Michael Jordan’s stature is quite extraordinary. No Michael Jordan championship ring or award has ever come to market and this may be the only such award to ever be offered. Goldin Auctions has verified with both Tiffany & Co. and the NBA that this is an original award and not a replica or reproduction. This was discovered in a famous storage locker find several years ago. We have attempted to reach Mr. Jordan through his representatives to discuss this award and to date have not been successful  A rare, perhaps once in a lifetime opportunity to obtain an original Michael Jordan NBA award.
