    1981 Michael Jordan Handwritten Signed Love Letter. Eighteen years old and lovestruck, a young legend in the making pens a two-page letter to his girlfriend Laquetta. For some unknown reason, Jordan dates this letter, and the other love letter presented within this auction, in Spanish ("17 de Mayo de 1981"), and signs his name on the first page's top margin as "Miguel Jordan." The balance of the letter, written on looseleaf notebook paper, is in English. An excerpt: "Laquetta, I would love to stay around you for the rest of my life. Maybe, someday it will come true. Laquetta, my heart bleed (sic) for your love." The letter concludes, "With Love, Michael Jordan," supplying a second autograph in the rarest early format. All ink rates 9/10 or better, and pages exhibit original mailing folds but no other issues to note. Included is a 4.5x6.5" print of the couple's prom photo, with Michael and Laquetta in matching white outfits. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
