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 size 42 Rawlings all mesh red road jersey has “Chicago” silk-screened across the chest in cursive script and Jordan’s famous number “23” is heat-pressed in black and white on the left front center. The open shoulders and collar are lined with a ribbed material featuring white, black and red color patterns. The back of the jersey has “JORDAN” in all white with his number “23” in black and white all heat-pressed on the mesh material. The Rawlings tag is sewn on the inside back collar and this jersey displays light to moderate game use. The numbers and “JORDAN” on the jersey are still in excellent condition while the “Chicago” on the front of the jersey have the mesh holes. This jersey comes with a detailed letter of authenticity from the game used experts at Mears, who have graded this Michael Jordan rookie jersey a solid A8.
