Vintage Washington Wizards "Michael Jordan" #23 Champion Jersey
Michael Jordan retired for the second time in 1999 after taking the Chicago Bulls to their second three-peat. There was no question that he was the best to play the game, so he took himself out for what seemed to be for good at age 36. He found a new role within the NBA, part owner and president of basketball operations of the Washington Wizards. Two years later, he had enough of standing on the sidelines. Jordan came back to play as #23 for the Wizards in 2001. Despite sustaining multiple injuries, Jordan became the leading scorer and went to his 14th All star game. He eventually retired after only two seasons, but his quick return was loved by fans. Even though the Wizards had a losing record, all of their home games were sold out. This original Michael Jordan Champion brand jersey, lightly worn, is from his short stint on the Washington Wizards.
