If you watched the last Dance which featured Chicago Bulls legends Michael Jordan, Dennis Rodman and Scottie Pippen last year you will appreciate that Scottie Pippen played a big role in the Chicago Bulls winning championships.
Scottie Pippen was born on the 25th of September 1965 which makes him 55, he was born in Hamburg, Arkansas to Ethel and Preston Pippen who are no longer with us.
In 1992 Pippen was a part of the Olympic Dream Team which beat its opponents by 44 points which makes him the only NBA player to have won an NBA title and Olympic gold medal in the same year. During his 17 year career he played one season with the Houston Rockets, four seasons with the Portland Trail Blazers and twelve seasons with the Chicago Bulls.
Chicago Bulls coach Phil Jackson has described Scottie Pippen as a “One Man Wrecking Crew” capable of guarding anyone from the point guard to the center position.
Some contacts and I in the memorabilia industry have tried several times to arrange a signing with Scottie Pippen but he has so far refused, he rarely signs anything and has been offered huge amounts of money to do a signing which makes anything signed by Pippen very rare and a great investment. At the time of writing this I could only find one other signed Jersey online for sale but did not have any authentication.
This signed Pippen jersey is stunning, the signature is perfect, its also authenticated by one of the leading authenticators in the world Upper Deck Authentication. I am currently having it framed and will be ready for sale in the coming days, But I do have another idea for it which I will post soon.
