    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 ("5 de Mayo de 1981"), though, to be fair, it was Cinco de Mayo on this occasion. The balance of the letter, written on looseleaf notebook paper, is in English. An excerpt: "I want you to know that when I called you today and you were [with] that boy I could have cry (sic) because my heart just fails to pump anymore. You hurt me just talking to another boy, especially that boy." The letter concludes, "Sincerely Yours Sweetheart, Michael Jordan," supplying an autograph that suggests the early stages of the one we've all come to know. 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.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
