     There are only a select few players that come along that can transform a sport and leave lasting legacies for decades after they are done. Baseball had stars like Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays and Hank Aaron. Football had Jim Brown, Johnny Unitas and Joe Montana. Hockey had Gordie Howe and Wayne Gretzky. Basketball, had Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, and arguably the greatest player of all time, Michael Jeffrey Jordan. Jordan not only turned the fortunes around of the struggling Chicago Bulls franchise when he entered the league in 1984, “His Airness” ushered in a new era of basketball with his un-paralleled athleticism and clutch play. Amazingly, Jordan was drafted third overall by the Bulls in 1984 as both the Houston Rockets, who selected Hakeem Olajuwon and Portland Trail Blazers, who selected Sam Bowie, passed on Jordan.

     Jordan’s rookie season did not disappoint as he averaged 28.2 points per game and led the Bulls to a playoff appearance. Jordan’s highlight reel dunks also started to draw attention in opposing arenas and helped the Bulls to become a marquee draw and began the era of “Air Jordan”. Offered is one of the finest examples of rookie Michael Jordan game used Bulls jersey. This all mesh off-white jersey has “BULLS” silk-screened across the chest and Jordan’s famous number “23” is heat-pressed in red and black on the left front center. The open shoulders and collar are lined with a ribbed material featuring red, black and white color patterns. The back of the jersey has “JORDAN” in all red with his number “23” in red and black all heat-pressed on the mesh material. The bottom tail of this jersey is tailored has a red Rawlings tag with a white “4 INCH EXTRA LENGTH” flag sewn on the bottom front left. This jersey displays considerable game use and presents in a cream colored white. The numbers and “JORDAN” on the jersey are still solid while the “BULLS” on the front of the jersey have the mesh holes. This impeccable jersey comes with a full LOA from noted Chicago Bulls jersey expert Alan Meza, who notes in his LOA that “It is one of the finest Rookie Jordan gamers I’ve ever seen” and a LOA from Mears, who have graded this jersey an A5. Please note that Alan Meza and Mears have differing opinions on the amount of use displayed in this jersey.
