It was Halloween night, 2003 and Michael Jordan came dressed as the MJ of old. Now, the jersey he wore on the night he and his Washington Wizards teammates scared the Boston Celtics into the worst loss in franchise history is headed to the auction block.
Lelands will offer the autographed home white jersey in its upcoming catalog. It’s expected to sell for at least a five-figure price.
The jersey, photomatched to the October 31, 2002 game, dates to Jordan’s first home game in his final NBA season. The 39-year-old icon scored 21 points, while dishing out five assists, four rebounds, two steals and a block in just 21 minutes of action in the blowout win. The Wizards beat the Celtics by 45 points with the 114-69 shellacking standing as the worst loss in Boston history.
Jordan signed the jersey on the back in black Sharpie and it comes with an Upper Deck Authenticated hologram.
It’ll be among the top lots in the 1,300-lot Lelands Premier Auction, set to open November 15 and run through December 11.
