Encapsulated and graded GEM MINT 9.5 by BGS, with signature graded "9" by Beckett. Hall of Famer. This is one of eight examples at its tier (with none graded higher) among a total of 14 copies recorded in BGS's census reporting.

Often and fittingly characterized as "The Greatest of All-Time," Michael Jordan set standards against which all other players continue to be measured. His accomplishments forever altered the parameters of his sport and the definitions of success in that highly competitive realm. At the onset of Jordan's participation, he took home the Rookie of the Year award. He became a six-time NBA champion, five-time NBA MVP and six-time NBA Finals MVP. Additional entries on his seemingly limitless tally of accolades include 14-time NBA All-Star, three-time NBA All-Star MVP, ten-time All-NBA First Team and 50th Anniversary All-Time Team. Finally, and without question suitably: enshrinement at The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

Michael Jordan did remarkable things on the court, but he also transformed the culture. Fathers and sons bonded over shared enthusiasm for Jordan's exploits. The sports pages were filled with daily news about his latest heroics. His presence in a game rendered moot any question of team loyalty: the fans first-and-foremost wanted to see this amazing player. In many ways, for many people, "MJ" became the game. Even now, years later, the observer's reaction upon viewing a highest-level Jordan tribute piece, as presented here, is an almost intoxicating, certainly priceless mixture of wonder, appreciation and nostalgia.

The obverse of this ultra-premium collectible displays the extraordinary sight of a red, game-worn jersey swatch relic bearing the vivid ink signature of Michael Jordan. The card's BGS condition report: Centering: 9.5, Corners: 9.5, Edges: 9.5, Surface: 9.5. A congratulatory statement on the card's back attests to the authenticity of the signature and genuineness of the patch component, and serves as Upper Deck’s COA. The limited-edition piece is serial-numbered "02/25." Stunning Gem Mint condition.
