    1983 Michael Jordan Vintage Signed First Sports Illustrated Cover. The first of forty-seven appearances on the cover of this fabled sporting periodical came with the November 28, 1983 issue, as MJ asserted the Tarheels' dominance of the NCAA with his friend and teammate Sam Perkins. Each has signed this cover, removed from the body of the magazine, in 10/10 black sharpie. More importantly, these autographs date to the era of the magazine's publication, offering a much tougher and more valuable Jordan signature than those commonly seen on the market. Short of the remnants of the mailing label's removal, the cover presents as NRMT, with no creases, tears or stains. LOA from PSA/DNA.
