Two seasons removed from an NBA Championship "three-peat," the Chicago Bulls again sought to reassemble the pieces to a title puzzle. With legendary superstar Michael Jordan having returned from what was close to a two-year hiatus, the Bulls took, well, the bull by the horns and acquired rebounding guru Dennis Rodman from the San Antonio Spurs. The rest is three-peat "repeat" history. Rodman fit like a glove (he covered opponents in similar fashion), finishing second, third and first, respectively, in rebounding during his three-year Bulls tenure. Offered here is a collection of Rodman's game used Bulls apparel. Included are: 1) 1998 NBA Finals Game Worn Jersey - a red mesh road jersey donned by Rodman in both his and Jordan's final game as Bulls (the latter player draining a jump shot with 5.2 seconds remaining to give the Bulls an 87-86 triumph and the NBA title). Four tags upon the front left tail respectively reveal "NBA," "NIKE," size "50" and "CHICAGO BULLS" (with a flop tag indicating "LENGTH +4"). Sewn on both the back and front in black-on-white tackle twill is Rodman's number "91." Arched above the numbers are "BULLS" and "RODMAN" on the front and back, respectively. Sewn near the left shoulders is an NBA logo and on the right shoulder is an "NBA Finals" patch. Inscribed in black Sharpie on the lower front portion is "Dennis Rodman - Game Used - NBA Finals 97-98 vs Utah - NBA Champion - End of a Dynasty"; 2) 1996/97 Game-Worn Shorts - a pair of red mesh, size "36" road shorts with snarling Bulls logos sewn over a diamond-shaped, white background on the side of each leg. The shorts also feature a white-black-and-red elastic waistband, a gold-colored NBA logo sewn on the right leg and interior tags (a Bulls tag indicating "RISE +2" and "INSEAM +2" and a "Champion" tag with "91" inscribed in black marker). Inscribed on the front of the shorts in black marker is "Dennis Rodman - Game Used 96-97 - 16.1 RPG - NBA Champion - Led NBA in Rebounding"; and 3) Game-Worn Sneakers - a pair of red-and-white leather "CONVERSE ALL-STAR, CHUCK TAYLOR, REACT" shoes (size "14") with white laces and red-and-white rubber soles. The words, "Dennis Rodman - Game Used - NBA Champs," appear as a hand-written, black Sharpie inscription on the back of each shoe. All items show light wear and are accompanied by LOAs signed by Rodman. All of the items are Graded A10 by SCD Authentic. Additional LOAs from Lou Lampson, Dan Knoll & Dave Bushing/SCD Authentic, and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA.
