“I think the one shot really put me on the map…that changed Mike Jordan to Michael Jordan.” – Michael Jordan
More than just a mere shot in a collegiate basketball game, it was the shot that secured the 1982 national championship title for UNC Tar Heels and a turning point for one CONVERSE-wearing UNC freshman “Mike” Jordan. A game between two schools with formidable basketball traditions, Jordan’s final score at 15 seconds to buzzer helped University of North Carolina triumphed over Georgetown at 63-62. Now 30 years later to the date, CONVERSE and Jordan Brand are marking occasion with a Limited Edition Commemorative Pack. As with the very same outfit worn by Jordan at that historical game, each of the commemorative pack comes with a specially design CONVERSE Pro Leather in Size 13 and a UNC jersey in Size 40. Individually numbered and signed by Jordan himself, both are beautifully packaged in a polished wooden case lined with acrylic display, a numbered plaque in golden brass, as well as a certificate of authenticity. Out of the 30 packs produced, 7 were given to individuals connected that game. The rest of the 23 packs are available now on eBay with all proceeds from the auction going to James R. Jordan Foundation, charitable organization established by Michael Jordan’s mother, Deloris Jordan, in the honor of Jordan’s late father. Auction starts today and scheduled to end Good Friday, April 6th. For more information or place your bid, visit the eBay listing HERE.
