Dirk Nowitzki didn't let a torn finger tendon, a serious sinus infection or Miami's vaunted "Big Three" stand in the way of his first NBA title, earning 2011 Finals MVP honors by averaging 26.0 points and 9.7 rebounds against the Heat. “This is a very special day. We waited a very long time for this,” he said just before the banner was raised to the rafters in Dallas on Christmas Day. As any Mavs fan can attest, Dirk Nowitzki will go down as one of the greatest players in team history. This jersey is as rare as they come given the Finals MVP wore this the night the Mavericks celebrated their NBA Championship on December 25th, 2011.
This Dirk Nowitzki Dallas Mavericks game used jersey includes a Panini Authentic certificate of authenticity with a unique hologram number that corresponds to the hologram on the actual collectible. These holograms protect the integrity of the product and serve to guarantee the authenticity of the signature it bears.
