It's not exactly a pair of his original Jordan 1s, a coveted Championship ring or even one of his priceless Chicago Bulls jerseys.

But this latest piece of Michael Jordan memorabilia set to go to auction is perhaps one of the rarest.

One lucky fan will have the chance to purchase Michael Jordan's jersey from his final NBA game - and it's expected to go for a fair bit of cash.

The jersey up for grabs is the Washington Wizards' navy blue away strip for the 2003 season.

Even at the ripe old age of 39, MJ still put on a show for the Washington fans by dropping 15 points to accompany his 4 rebounds and 4 assists.

And even though the Philadelphia 76ers came out on top on the night, the game itself will still go down as a historic moment in NBA history when arguably the greatest player of all-time left the game for good.

It turns out the six-time NBA champ gave the jersey to the owner of a local limousine company after the duo had struck up a friendship.

Fast forward to today and the jersey Jordan was wearing that very night is up for auction.

Although it's understood he actually wore that same jersey during the final 2 months of his star-studded NBA career.

The iconic number 23 shirt will be sold through the well-established Goldin Auctions company, who are reportedly expecting for the memorabilia to be sold for upwards of $500,000 (AU$691,000).
