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 Jordan.

Jordan not only turned the fortunes of the struggling Chicago Bulls franchise when he entered the league in 1984, “His Airness” also 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”.

Goldin Auctions is proud to offer the finest examples of a rookie Michael Jordan game used Bulls jersey ever put up for Auction. This jersey has been fully authenticated by the game used experts at MEARS, who have graded this jersey its highest grade of A10. This is the only game used  Michael Jordan rookie jersey to have ever been given the A10 grade by MEARS. This is ALSO the only SIGNED rookie Jordan game used jersey that was certified by MEARS.

This size 42 Rawlings all mesh red road jersey was worn by Jordan during his rookie season and 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 size 42 tag is sewn on the inside back collar and this jersey displays moderate game use, which is consistent with Jordan gamers from that era. Some of the wear on this jersey includes a mark on the top of the “J” and puckering to the anchor stitching where the Rawlings tag attached to the neck. Adding to this already remarkable jersey is the black marker full signature of Michael Jordan. Jordan signed his name in between the “Chicago” and “23” on the front towards the right side. A complete gamer from the legend – signed by the legend! This jersey comes with a detailed letter of authenticity from the game used experts at MEARS, who have graded this Michael Jordan rookie jersey its highest grade of A10. There are also LOAs from JSA (BB37672) and Beckett Authentication for Jordan’s signature.
