"This is really one of the most iconic Michael Jordan jerseys that a collector could have. So this is the 1998 NBA Finals jersey from Game 1 of the 'Last Dance' finals. So when you think about Michael Jordan contests and the heat of that moment, the 1998 NBA Finals going into Utah in what was ultimately actually still to this day the most viewed NBA finals contest. This really captures that spirit. And I think for Michael Jordan, captures that incredible competitive edge that he had."

"I think they're like this unique document of a period in time. They're a unique moment, whether it's Michael Jordan's debut game or LeBron James's 81-point scoring game. They document the exact day that this hugely memorable moment in sport happened. They have the date, they have the venue. So I think they really encapsulate a really exciting moment in time that people look back on with fondness."
