Editor’s Note

The summer of 1993 was a tumultuous one for Michael Jordan, as he completed his first three-peat with the Chicago Bulls, then dealt with the murder of his father the following month. That October, MJ retired from basketball, and would pursue his father's dream of being a Major League Baseball player the following spring. He spent the season on the Birmingham Barons, the Double-A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox (who just happened to share an owner with his former NBA employer.) This rare Type 1 photo was taken by Phil Velasquez for the Chicago Sun-Times and features His Airness in his Barons uniform, signing autographs for fans. Verified authentic by PSA, it arrives slabbed in a protective hard case.

A Type 1 photograph is a historical photograph that was developed from the original negative during the time period in which it was taken, usually by a publication.
