Michael Jordan's record 1-year Bulls contract up for auction

Michael Jordan made headlined after headline throughout the 1990’s, but in 1997 he set a then-NBA record for biggest single season contract. That season Jordan signed with the Chicago Bulls for one year and $33 million.

It became one of the most famous contracts in sports history, and now you could be the owner of the actual signed contract.

Heritage Auctions has put the contract up for bidding, and you could be the owner of the contract for a cool $7,500 as of this publication.

Only Michael Jordan could top himself though, as he signed a one-year deal in 1996-97 for $30 million and delivered championship No. 5 to the Bulls. He leveraged that season in to a pay raise and once again didn’t disappoint.

That season Jordan delivered the sixth NBA championship of the era to the Bulls. It also was the last season we would see Jordan in a Bulls jersey and he averaged 28.7 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game.

According to Heritage Auctions, this contract is the only Jordan contract to ever surface on the collecting hobby circuit. That would make this an extremely rare piece and you could be the owner of this contract by the end of July if you’re the lucky winner of the auction.
