Michael Jordan apparently hit up the casino the day before a 105-97 win over the Indiana Pacers in 1998, and one fan will have the evidence to prove it.

Action Network's Darren Rovell reported that a $15,000 signed check from Jordan to the Trump Casino in Gary, Indiana, is up for auction:

JUST IN: A $15,000 signed wire from Michael Jordan to the Trump Casino Indiana during the 1997-98 “Last Dance” season has just hit the auction block https://t.co/i0HEXjucFd

Jordan's gambling habits were among the subjects touched on during The Last Dance last week. The documentary shared footage from an interview he gave to Connie Chung in which he said he had "a competition problem, a competitive problem."

The check is dated Feb. 16, 1998, which lines up with when the Chicago Bulls were in Chicago to face off with one of their Eastern Conference rivals. They beat the Pacers on Feb. 17 before heading north of the border for a matchup with the Toronto Raptors on Feb. 19.

The obviously didn't hurt Jordan's performance, as he finished with 27 points, six assists and four rebounds against Indiana.
