Presented is a ticket stub to the 1981-82 NCAA Basketball Championship Game. This game marked the time when Michael Jordan started to become famous as his North Carolina Tar Heels won their second NCAA National Championship. The Louisiana Superdome hosted the event, played on March 29, 1982, between North Carolina and Georgetown. Both North Carolina coach Dean Smith and Georgetown coach John Thompson were seeking their first NCAA title. The Georgetown star was 7'0" center Patrick Ewing, only a freshman. Georgetown led 32-31 at the half. The lead kept changing hands many times, and the Tar Heels passed the ball around as they trailed 62-61 in the last minute. Then, with only 15 seconds left in the game, Jordan hit a jumper from the left side to give the Tar Heels a one-point lead, which they held, for a 63-62 victory The clutch shot became known as "The Shot." Jordan explains. "When I hit that shot, I went from being Mike to being Michael Jordan." Later on would be Jordan's phenomenal success with the Double Threepeat Champion Chicago Bulls. Then, during the Covid pandemic, the television documentary The Last Dance, was watched by so much of the world, creating unprecedented interest all memorabilia involving Jordan. Now MJ is the consensus GOAT, but this ticket stub is from the game when he first became a household name. The ticket stub, for Section 637, Row 37, Seat 14, has been encapsulated and graded by PSA 1.5 FR.
