    1989-90 Michael Jordan Game Worn Chicago Bulls Jersey. When one becomes so familiar at the pinnacle, it's easy to forget the climb. Part human, part super-human, part global marketing brand, Michael Jordan is properly remembered as the sport's consummate winner, but the offered garment finds the iconic Hall of Famer still at the brink of that destiny. It could be argued that the 1989-90 Bulls season from which this garment derives was the most consequential in the building of the Jordan dynasty, despite the fact that the team would, for the third consecutive season, find their route to the NBA Finals blocked by the Bad Boys of basketball, the tough Thomas/Dumars-era Detroit Pistons. With the signing of legendary coach Phil Jackson, the Chicago Bulls had all the components necessary to build a juggernaut.

    Presented is the most recognizable athletic garment of American sports' last quarter century, a white mesh home gamer immortalized over the course of a decade of utter NBA dominance. "Bulls 23" is screened to the chest in red and black, with the digits repeated in identical format on reverse. "Jordan" spans shoulders in red. Lower left front tail holds the full compendium of manufacturer's tagging: "MacGregor Sand-Knit [size] 44" with Bulls Exclusivity secondary label, and embroidered swatches reporting vintage (89) and tailoring modifications (3" LB). The experts at MEARS assess game wear as "moderate," which is far greater than the average for Jordan, who changed jerseys often.

    Jordan would lead all NBA players this season with 33.6 points and 2.8 steals per game, as solid evidence as any of his supremacy on both ends of the court. He'd find still another gear in the postseason, once again leading the pack with 36.7 points per game, the second-highest of his playoff career. LOA from MEARS, A5. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
