The Michael Jordan/Yvette Prieto nuptials are history now with the lovebirds back in their 35,000' ft. nest in the elegant Bears Club in Jupiter, Florida. Guests are still talking about the wedding tent, which, according to my sources, was one of the world's largest at 40,000' ft! It was even bigger than their house! I can only imagine the wedding gifts they must've received. After all, what would you ever buy for Michael Jordan that he didn't already have? Well, I bet none topped this idea for the legendary basketball superstar and his model wife! Get this! Upper Deck (the world's leading sports memorabilia company) created a one-of-a-kind Michael Jordan wedding card. The oversized card, named "Shining Moments", is signed by 16 athletes and celebrities who are friends of the famous couple.
Upper Deck's marketing manager, Chris Carlin, said, "Upper Deck has enjoyed a fantastic relationship with Michael Jordan over the years. We wanted to create something that would be meaningful, not only to Michael, but to his new wife Yvette as well. Over the past few weeks we have worked to collect a variety of autographs from sports legends and personalities who are close to both Michael and Yvette. Our Athlete Relations Team did an amazing job of collecting 16 autographs." Carlin pointed out that this is also the first collectible to feature the couple together.
This unique gift is signed by Ahmad Rashad, Brandi Chastain, Brett Hull, Chris Chelios, Dwight Freeney, Flex Alexander, Julius Erving, Ken Griffey, Jr., Mario Lemieux, Richard Dent, Ron Harper, Salli Richardson, Toni Kukoc, Vince Coleman, Wayne Gretzky and Winn McMurry.
It's good to be King!
