2001 marked the second year in which basketball enthusiasts were blessed with the opportunity to pull a card with swatches of jerseys and signatures of Chicago Bulls Hall of Famer Michael Jordan and 2021 Hall of Fame Inductee Kobe Bryant. At the time, Kobe was playing in his sixth season while MJ was playing in his 14th, so collectors were waiting years for something this special. This 2001-02 Upper Deck Legendary Jerseys dual autograph features swatches of game worn jerseys worn by the two legends, and sports perfect 10/10 signatures right underneath. There is not a single sale of this Legendary Jerseys dual auto to be found in the archives of any major auction house, so this example is most likely the first of its kind to be offered in the last decade, if not longer. The icing on the cake is the fact that even though MJ was playing on the Washington Wizards in 2001, Upper Deck had the awareness to show him in a Chicago Bulls uniform and put a swatch from one of his game worn Bulls jerseys. The first MJ/Kobe dual auto jersey card, 2000-01 UD Combos, is also numbered /10 and recently made headlines with the 6/10 example in BGS 8.5 form selling for over half a million dollars, thus confirming the importance and severity of these once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. Graded BGS MINT 9 - Auto 10 with subgrades: 10 centering, 8.5 corners, 9 edges, 9.5 surface. One of two BGS MINT 9's in the world with NONE graded higher!
