Several one-of-a-kind historic pieces from some of Michael Jordan’s most memorable games have now been certified by CSG.
Last year, the Florida based authentication company certified six single sneakers from each of his six championship-clinching games that are believed to have come from the collection of former Bulls’ PR man Tim Hallam. “The Dynasty Collection” was on display at the National Sports Collectors Convention.
CSG recently certified two items from Jordan’s career-best 69-point game on March 28, 1990. Following the victory, the perennial All-Star signed and inscribed a copy of the box score and the official scorecard from the record-setting game.
CSG also certified Jordan’s 1990-91 NBA Awards Official Player Ballot, which Jordan himself signed and completed in his own handwriting. Players weren’t allowed to vote for themselves or their teammates, so Jordan chose forwards Charles Barkley and Karl Malone, guards Kevin Johnson and Joe Dumars and center David Robinson. Jordan added forward Derrick Coleman as his pick for Rookie of the Year, and he selected Charles Barkley once again as the Player of the Year before signing his name and writing ‘Chicago Bulls’ at the bottom of the ballot.
What became of the last ball thrown by Tom Brady as a member of the New England Patriots? It was a pick six against the Tennessee Titans, returned for the score by former teammate Logan Ryan.
Ryan apparently kept the ball and the two are teammates once again in Tampa. Earlier this week, Brady shared a funny social media post, showing off the ball, which is signed and inscribed.

Hundreds of dealers and thousands of collectors turned out for the first major Dallas Card Show of the year. Here’s a drone flyover of the main room (silent video):
After a young girl had her autographed Memphis Grizzlies basketball stolen, Ja Morant came to the rescue. The team hooked 11-year-old Ellie Hughes and her family up with courtside seats and afterward, Morant paid them a visit, turning over some pretty nice gifts.
