Few moments in sports history have taken on enough of a life of their own as to incorporate language as part of their lore. Willie Mays' 1954 World Series grab is "The Catch" and Bobby Thomson's 1951 home run is "The Shot Heard Round the World." In basketball if you say to a fan "The Move", they know exactly what you are talking about; the mid-air change of hands from Michael Jordan against the Lakers in the 1991 NBA Finals. The next morning after this event, millions of children across the world tried to replicate it on the playground and it was the subject of countless discussions around water coolers. It seemed to come out of nowhere, but came to personify the athleticism of Michael Jordan. The offered 11x14 full color masterpiece is the only vintage example of "The Move" we have ever seen and it presents like a work of art in oversized form. Stamped on the back by photographer Carl Sissac and authenticated by PSA as a Type 1, this is a truly iconic image that ranks among the best of Jordan to ever hit the market. The condition and quality are both outstanding!
