How Much is a Michael Jordan Autograph Worth?



Michael Jordan memorabilia is some of the most sought after sports memorabilia because many believe he is the greatest basketball player of all time. Jordan's many illustrious awards and titles include 14 All-Star, 5 MVPs and even an Olympic gold medal. There's no doubt that a Michael Jordan autograph is valuable, especially now that Jordan is retired. Another reason a Jordan autograph is so valuable is because he wasn't a big autograph signer. The frenzied fans clamoring for his signature were deemed a hazard, therefore he did not sign for fans at sporting events very often.



On average, an authentic Jordan autograph is going to be worth more than $1,000. Exactly how much a particular autograph is worth will depend on the condition of the item, its rarity, the time period when it was signed, and what the item is.



For example, there are autographed jerseys, balls, plaques and other memorabilia items that are going to be worth more than a simple signed piece of paper.



When buying a Jordan autograph, proper authentication is very important. Upper Deck (UDA) is one of the finest authentication agencies for sports memorabilia and is trusted by collectors everywhere. If an item you're considering comes with UDA authentication, you can trust that it's the real thing. Buying an item without this authentication is more tricky. You may get a certificate with your item but unless it is from a verifiable authentication agency it may not be legitimate.



You'll find many celebrity autographs for sale on Ebay, including those from Michael Jordan. When purchasing an autographed item online, go with sellers that have a history of positive customer feedback. Ideally, the item you purchase should come with a lifetime guarantee of authenticity. That way, you can get the item authenticated and return it if it's a fake. If a seller cannot provide a certificate of authenticity from a legitimate agency or a lifetime guarantee, you should probably think twice about buying.



If you are the owner of an authentic Michael Jordan autograph, you may be thinking about selling. You may want to reconsider, because many autographs will increase in value over time. If you're a big Jordan fan, selling a piece of autographed memorabilia may never cross your mind. Make sure you keep your Jordan autograph protected in a Mylar sleeve and stored in a safe place away from heat, light and moisture. A safe deposit box is a storage good choice for an autograph that is valuable.

i have a tshirt signed by all the bulls when they played the Vancouver Grizzlies and Dennis Rodman was there but not dressed for the game and the entire team and Phil Jackson and Rodman signed the tshirt for the brother of Bill Winnington who also took video and stills and had the VIP pass which was all given to me because of favor I did for Winnington's kid brother was broke down with his car in British Columbia and I towed his car and stored it at no charge and fixed it for no charge while he was on his way to a summer job in Alaska and he was broke. At the end of the summer he came to redeem his car and said that he was first going to fly to Vancouver as a guest of his brother at the last - Bulls,Grizzly game ever played and when he got back from the game he gave me all of this for being kind to him. It has been in a safety deposit vault ever since

I have a very cool true story about meeting
Michael Jordan, I was a kid(13), my brother in law was coaching for the elmhurst collage football team at the time. My sister and brother in law, lived in the dorm and also served as dorm mangers. Michael Jordan had his Flight school there. We went up to visit them that same weekend and stayed in my sisters dorm. Michael Jordan was also in the same dorm. We hung with MJ, played pool, watched t.v. I'll never forget that. At the time we were there, i had gotten his autograph on notebook paper (Best wish's Michael Jordan) and one of that years flight school (87') tee shirts. What would that be worth??????

There are a couple times a year in which you can send your own items in for MJ to sign. I keep a running post here:

I have a Sports Illustrated with Michael Jordan and Sam Perkins on the cover, 1983. I was a Freshman at UNC and bought it at the Student Union. I was in the pit looking through it after I purchased it. I looked behind me and there stood Michael. I asked Michael to sign it and he generously did with a smile. One of my most prized possessions!!

I have a jersey that's autographed by Michael Jordan. It's not inside the number 2 though. It's above his name. Doesn't Michael only sign inside the number 2?
