1982 men's basketball Final Four program signed on the interior in blue ink by the following ten members of the NCAA Champion North Carolina Tar Heels: Michael Jordan (grading "8"), Sam Perkins, Matt Doherty, James Worthy, Warren Martin, Timo Makkonen, Jeb Barlow, Jim Braddock, Buzz Peterson, and Lynwood Robinson. All of the signatures, penned in the area of each player's respective photo, grade "8" or "9."
