1990-91 Michael Jordan Game Worn Jersey
You’re looking at one of the most important Michael Jordan game worn jerseys on the market. It is, of course, from a season in which Jordan and the Chicago Bulls won it all. This was notably the Bulls’ first-ever NBA title. In true Jordan fashion, he won the league MVP award for his second time, as well as his fifth straight scoring title, topping 40 points in 11 games. That season Jordan can also boast of winning the NBA finals MVP and making the All-NBA first team, all-defensive first team, and the NBA All-Star starting line-up. But the jersey is made even more significant by the fact that 1990-91 was the last season in which the Bulls used the screened on lettering and numbering from Champion. “Bulls 23” on the front, and “23” on verso. “JORDAN” on the verso is plastic pressed in solid white (pre-sewn-on period). Red road jersey is consistent with Champion’s late 1980’s entry into NBA uniforms. The Bulls now use Nike versions (started in 1997-98). This jersey has a softer feel as opposed to its Nike counterpart. Jersey shows light signs of use, a common occurrence with this style jersey, as the plasticized numbers & letters repel sweat and phosphates with minimal cracking, although slight cracking is visible. Tagging & cotton neck & arm trim show minimal signs of wear and washing. Tagging on front tail is “Champion [size] 46” with a “Custom Designed Chicago Bulls” tag printed with “year 90 sleeve length 0 body length +3”. Lower left inside gusset side seam holds the “100% nylon” flap tag. Complete with red, white & blue NBA dribbler patch on left front shoulder. A monumental jersey from the last year the Chicago Bulls used the style, emanating from America’s greatest athlete. Authenticated by Lou Lampson, a renowned expert and authenticator of game used basketball equipment, who has included his personal LOA. Additional LOA from the President of Legends of the Game in Wheaton, IL explaining that this jersey was purchased directly from an NBA team source in the early 1990’s. No better time to get in than the present, as Michael turns the Washington Wizards into playoff contenders. LOA.
