    1986-87 Michael Jordan Game Worn Jersey. This season began a seven-year run atop the NBA's scoring charts for basketball's most recognizable star, a feat matched only by the legendary Wilt Chamberlain in the history of the league. While the man who would be King had certainly shows flashes of greatness in his two years with the Chicago Bulls prior to this one, it was the 1986-87 season that truly put the basketball world on notice that Jordan was a breed apart. This road red mesh jersey shows definite wear from that important season in this first-ballot Hall of Fame career, with the classic styling that is unmistakably Jordan. "Bulls 23" is screened in bold black and white across the chest, with "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," with "3" LB" tailoring designation in embroidered swatch to the left. Early career Jordan gamers are much tougher than those dating from the second half of his NBA tenure, and collectors realize that there is a definite premium attached to jerseys like this one. And, understanding that Jordan will be remembered throughout history in the way that only a tiny handful of iconic athletes are (Babe Ruth, Muhammad Ali, etc.), the investment outlook here is very encouraging. LOA from Lou Lampson.
