Sometime back in the 1990s, the Gibson Guitar company presented Michael Jordan with a custom-made Bulls-themed guitar. It has the Bulls logo, says “Chicago Bulls” and the serial number is CHI (CHICAGO) 23…in honor of MJ’s jersey number! Heck, it even has Mike’s signature. (Jordan probably had to put his name on the guitar to keep Jud “Sticky Fingers” Buechler from walking off with it.) MJ graciously accepted this totally sweet gift, but then one thing led to another and now it’s being sold on eBay for $10,000.
If ten grand is little outside your “ridiculous Michael Jordan-related collector’s items” budget, may I suggest this “Return to Greatness” 12-plate collection from the Bradford Exchange? The set was produced on hard-fired porcelain to the highest quality and artistic standards, and each plate is surrounded by 22 karat gold and a replica of Mike’s autograph. That’s right: A real imitation of MJ’s signature. A steal for $250. (And by that I mean you’ll be the one being robbed.)
