If Michael Jordan memorabilia from his time in Chicago doesn’t excite you, then check this out — a ticket stub from his first-ever game as a UNC Tar Heel has just hit the auction block … and, it’s believed to be the only one in existence!
The extremely rare piece is from the November 1981 UNC vs. Kansas game — which was Jordan’s debut on Dean Smith‘s Tar Heels hoops team.
The ticket is tattered and torn and has been given a poor 1 grading … but since it’s believed to be the only surviving stub from the night — it could net a small fortune.
Jordan ticket stubs have been hot on the auction block recently … earlier this year, a Chicago Bulls stub from Jordan’s 1984 debut (one of 23 available) sold for $99,000.
As for Jordan’s career at UNC, it was legendary … during his three seasons, he averaged 17.7 points per game and shot 54% from the field. He also won the Naismith and Wooden College Player of the Year awards in 1984.
Of course, MJ’s most memorable Tar Heels moment was when he made the game-winning shot in the 1982 NCAA Championship against Patrick Ewing and the Georgetown Hoyas.
Auction for the ticket ends on June 25 … happy bidding!
