Jordan Finals jerseys are notoriously rare, with the 1997-1998 Finals arguably the most coveted of them all.”, comments Bram Watcher with every reason in the world, since, according to this expert, the price they estimated to raise at first ranged between 3 and 5 million dollars, the normal price that is usually paid at auction for a shirt of the NBA, but of course, they did not think, not remotely, that it would even be possible to double the initial estimates.
