    MJ's sole 3,000+ point season!

    1986-87 Michael Jordan Game Worn Chicago Bulls Jersey, MEARS A10. It's widely considered one of the greatest seasons in American history, for any sport. Jordan's primary legacy may be his six NBA Championship rings, but from a purely statistical standpoint, the 1986-87 campaign from which this home white mesh jersey derives stands as his finest. Only one player in NBA history--Wilt Chamberlain--had ever recorded more than 3,000 points in a single season until Jordan's stunning third year in a Bulls uniform, the start of a seven-year reign atop the NBA scoring rankings, likewise linking Jordan to Chamberlain in a brotherhood of two.

    In the backcourt, Jordan left even The Stilt in his wake, becoming the first player in the history of the league to record 200 steals and 100 blocks in a single season. Many sportswriters regarded the awarding of the NBA Most Valuable Player Award to Magic Johnson at the close of the season as a gross miscarriage of justice.

    Here we encounter the finest relic from that peerless campaign we've had the good fortune to offer, a garment that earns the highest assessment possible from leading uniform authentication service MEARS. While late-career Jordans typically saw no more than one game's action before transition from wardrobe to collectible, the presented early model is deeply infused with sweaty Chicago Stadium wear.

    The classic styling is unmistakably Jordan, with "Bulls 23" screened in bold red and black across the chest, and "Jordan 23" in place on verso, with the proper "drop" (or positioning below the collar) for genuine NBA gamers--replicas and samples have a much shallower drop. All tail tagging is likewise correct in style and placement, with dual "Sand-Knit" labels designating "Bulls Exclusivity" and "[size] 44." The essential "3" LB" tailoring designation appears as an embroidered swatch to the left.

    While a decade since Jordan's final retirement has seen a number of megastar contenders to the crown from Kobe to LeBron, none has been able to snatch it from MJ's head, and it's likely none ever will. Jordan remains at the pinnacle of the American pantheon with the likes of Babe Ruth, Wayne Gretzky and Muhammad Ali, a fact that bodes well for the enduring investment prospects of upper echelon memorabilia like this. LOA from MEARS, A10. LOA From Heritage Auctions.
