Michael Jordan is known for wearing the number 23. When he returned from early retirement and a dalliance with baseball, however, he wore jersey number 45. Jordan wore the number for only 22 games, including a home loss to the Orlando Magic on Fri, Mar 24, 1995, that would foreshadow the Bulls' playoff struggles against the Shaq-and Penny-led team. This autographed photo is from that game and shows His Airness in his Jordan 10s gliding in, tongue out, for a dunk between Brian Shaw and Nick Anderson (the latter of whom sparked his return to #23). The signature is certified authentic by Upper Deck, as evidenced by the hologram in the lower right corner and the certificate of authenticity that accompanies it, and the print arrives in a black custom frame with black acid-free mats and backing and a UV protective acrylic cover.
