Michael Jordan may have retired from the basketball world, but he is still making a big impact in the basketball community.

Last month a short video (below) showing a fan playing basketball head to toe in Jordan gear went viral. The guy in the video was quickly tracked down and it turns out he is a major Jordan fan. The man, whose name is Jeffery Harrison, is from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and is also autistic.

Harrison has two Jordan uniforms and normally rotates between the two of them when he plays basketball. Now, thanks to a local news station, Harrison will have plenty more to choose from.

Local news station KREM reached out to Jordan’s representative where they informed the all-star basketball player of his mega fan. Jordan then sent Harrison two boxes filled with clothing and shoes. Jordan also made sure to include a personalized letter in the care package telling Harrison to “play hard and remember to enjoy the game.”

Jordan even made a special phone call to Harrison to check in and make sure that he received his gifts.

“I love it! Yup even the cologne, even the sweats, I love it!” Harrison told NowThis.

See Harrison open all of the gifts below!
