Home, Away or Alternate; Which Jordan Jersey is Your Favorite?

Vintage Michael Jordan Jersey Champion Chicago Bulls

13 years in Chicago and 6 NBA Championships later, Michael Jordan established himself as one of basketball’s all time greats.

In a time before sleeved jerseys or Christmas alternates, MJ spent most of his career wearing the familiar #23 Chicago Bulls red, white and black uniform. Yes, Jordan did sport #45 during his comeback season from baseball in 1995, however the GOAT will always be remember for making the number 23 famous.

My question today is, which Michael Jordan jersey is your favorite? His home white uniform, the road red uniform or the alternate black uniform that was introduced during the 1995-96 season?

Michael Jordans Game Worn 1992 Olympic Jersey Sells for Almost 33K!

michael-jordan-dream-team-used-uniform-01

What’s the most you would be willing to spend for an authentic NBA basketball jersey? Two hundred? Three hundred? Four? Okay, but how much would you spend for a chance to own Michael Jordan’s game worn 1992 Olympic Basketball jersey from the Dream Team? Try $32,682.63!

That’s right, MJ’s uniform (jersey and shorts) were just sold by Goldin Auctions last weekend. Both made by one of Rare Vintage Wear favorite brands, Champion. The jersey was a size 46 and shorts size 36. I’m sure the winning bidder plans to frame the set, but if I were him I would throw on the uniform ASAP and take a few jumpers in the driveway!

michael-jordan-dream-team-used-uniform-02 michael-jordan-dream-team-used-uniform-01Interestingly enough, many fakes of the 1992 Jordan Olympic jersey pop up on eBay and the second hand market. It is EXTREMELY difficult to find an Authentic version of the jersey, making this jersey more rare in my opinion. Lucky for me, I know a former Champion employee holding an entire set of Dream Team Authentic jerseys from the whole team. He’s not selling them anytime soon. Sorry!
