The phrase “The Last Shot” is popularly connected with Michael Jordan and his memorable performance in Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals. The Chicago Bulls were playing the Utah Jazz, and the series was deadlocked at 2-2. It was the dying seconds of the game, and the Bulls were down one-point. With only a few seconds remaining, Michael Jordan dribbled the ball towards the top of the key. He made a rapid move to his right, then crossed over to his left, creating space from defender Bryon Russell. Jordan stood up and launched a picture-perfect jumper from the top of the key with 5.2 seconds remaining. Michael Jordan’s final shot in the 1998 NBA Finals is widely recognized as one of the most iconic moments in basketball history. It was the ideal finish to Jordan’s tenure with the Bulls, since he would retire shortly after, establishing a lasting legacy as one of the greatest basketball players of all time. To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Michael Jordan’s last Championship Upper Deck has designed a one-of-a-kind logo that is printed on the acrylic of the show.
This overall 46” x 20” framed piece includes Jordan’s large signature on a piece of p-velvet paper underneath the iconic action image from that magical moment. This is the gold edition of “The Last Shot 25th Anniversary Gold” that is limited to just 23. Jordan’s signature is deemed authentic by virtue of Upper Deck Authenticated’s Five-Step Process.
