The second phase of Michael Jordan's career saw the Bulls superstar continue to dominate the NBA. 1997-1998 was Jordan's last season with the Bulls and he made it count: an average of 28.7 points per game, NBA All-Star First Team honors and the last of his five NBA MVP Awards were among his many achievements that season. In addition, Jordan led the Bulls to another NBA Championship, where his 2-point jump shot with five seconds left struck a dagger into the heart of the Utah Jazz. It was the second run of three consecutive championships by the Bulls and Michael Jordan's crowning moment. Jordan would retire again for the second time, playing his last season for the Bulls before coming out of retirement in 2001 for the Washington Wizards.

This timeless home white Chicago Bulls jersey was worn by the greatest basketball player of all-time during his last, triumphant season with Chicago. This jersey has been photo matched by Sports Investors Authentication and Resolution Photomatching to the February 23rd, 1998 game between the Bulls and the Cleveland Cavaliers where Jordan had a game-high 17 points that helped lead the Bulls to a 97-75 victory - their 8th straight win.

This white mesh jersey features “BULLS” sewn across the chest in red-on-black tackle twill. Jordan’s iconic number “23” is sewn on the front and back of the jersey in red-on-black tackle twill. “JORDAN” is sewn across the back shoulders in red-on-black tackle twill. An NBA logo patch is sewn on the left breast of the jersey. Red, black, and white bands ring the sleeve openings and the collar. A Nike size “50” tag, flanked by “NBA Authentics” and “Chicago Bulls” tags, are sewn on the front bottom left portion of the jersey. The Nike tag has a “LENGTH +4” flag attached. On the inside of the jersey adjacent to the wash tag is a “NIKE 1997-98” tag. This jersey displays moderate use with evidence of laundering, loose threads and puckering of the letters and numbers throughout. This jersey is original with no alterations. This comes with a LOA from the Chicago Bulls for the game use, along with LOAs from Sports Investors Authentication (200521E3) and Resolution Photomatching (426774), who have both photo matched this jersey to the February 23rd, 1998 game.
