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?

Once in a blue moon baseball fans get to witness a talent like Derek Jeter. After his 20th Major League season, Jeter hung up his spikes for good, retiring as the Yankees all-time leader in games played, hits, doubles, stolen bases, times on base, at bats, and plate appearances. His accolades don’t stop there; The Captain also won 5 World Series Titles, 5 Gold Glove Awards and made the All Star Team 14 times during his illustrious career in pinstripes.

Rare VNTG has chosen to honor Jeter with a high quality custom creation, “The Captains Jacket”. The jackets are all original 90’s Starter Satin’s, and feature Jeter’s #2 sewn on the back. They also include an Authentic 2000 World Series patch on the sleeve. The 2000 Subway Series was the only time Derek Jeter won a World Series MVP in his career.

2014 Miami Heat new alternate uniforms throwback all red

Lebron James has always enjoyed having a plethora of uniform combinations to choose from. In Cleveland, he brought back just about every Cavaliers throwback jersey in history. Not only did it help with jersey sales, the frequent jersey switches allowed Nike to add several additional colorways to popular Lebron James sneakers.

Now in Miami, King James still likes to switch up jerseys on a nightly basis. The Miami Heat wore 8 different jerseys last season; in 2013-2014 they’ll have 2 more jeresys in their uniform arsenal. Lebron and D-Wade showed off the Heat jerseys on instagram. One is an all red jersey similar to the Christmas uniform from last season, the other is a black jersey modeled off the uniforms the Heat wore during the early 90’s. Check out the jerseys and let us know what you think!
