BURNABY, BC, October 20, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Hall of Fame and Legendary shooting guard, Michael Jordan, who won no less than six NBA titles with the Chicago Bulls during his esteemed 15-year-career, led the Bulls to two unprecedented three-peat championships during the 90s that saw the Bulls dominate the NBA and Jordan ascend to greatness.
An MVP Gold Wilson Basketball signed by six-time Finals MVP Michael Jordan is rarely up for auction. However, Direct Liquidation has managed to present not one but 2 precious pieces of authenticated Michael Jordan collectibles that will be going up for auction on October 24, 2021. One signed Gold Basketball and a special piece of the original Chicago bulls stadium floor, sighed by Michael himself.
Jordan left an indelible mark on the NBA with his five NBA MVP Awards, 14 All-Star Game selections, while also earning 10 NBA scoring champion honours and is widely considered the greatest basketball player of all time. Jordan's staggering six Finals MVP Awards are still an NBA record, and Jordan was enshrined in the Naismith Hall of Fame in 2009.

About the collector:
"We are honoured to bring to you a super extraordinary and desirable collection of sports memorabilia collected over the life of Rick More." - Jeff the Liquidator
The story about Rick and his amazing collection will be auctioned off Oct 24 and Nov 6, 2021, through Direct Liquidation:
Rick was born in Toronto, Ontario Canada. He was born a collector. His lifelong passion for sports led to this elaborate collection. During his life as a printer & publisher, he has relocated from Toronto to Denver Colorado and Dallas Texas. His passion for golf and hockey expanded into Football, baseball and NASCAR.
He also loved antiques and saw the value. Travelling allowed Rick to expand his search for collecting. His wife Sandra and 3 children, Leanne, Ryan and Melissa were involved in facilitating his passion or as they often thought enabling him to pursue this passion. Rick's personality was larger than life. He had a vast interest in EVERYTHING!
He was active from an early age in hockey and golf and enjoyed athletics right up until the end of his life. He never lost that passion throughout his life and could turn his hand to anything. During retirement, he renovated a beautiful estate home for his family and the happiest moments were spent "at the lake" with his favourite people who called him Papa.
Rick was very concerned as to how his lifelong collection would be handled. Adding to someone's collection or passions of interest would please Rick as he was a generous man who was dearly loved.
