Michael Jordan 25th Anniversary Rookie Jersey

Michell And Ness Jordan Rookie Jersey

To commemorate “The Moment The Game Changed,” Mitchell & Ness re-released Michael Jordan‘s rookie jersey. The jersey itself is tailored to the exact specifications of the one that Jordan wore in 1984-85. These jerseys will release exactly 25-years after MJ graced the NBA hardwood (October 26, 1984). The Mitchell & Ness store in Philly, NBA Store in NYC, The Chicago Bulls team store, and will be the only places to buy the jerseys, which retail for $375.

Mitchell & Ness delivered one of these jerseys to me last week. Upon removing the dust cover and opening the meticulously designed Mitchell & Ness box, I found one of the greatest gifts/perks that I have ever received. Mitchell & Ness produced 1,264 jerseys to reflect the number of games Jordan played as a pro. This number includes the regular season, All-Star, and playoffs. Each jersey is stitched with a number from 1-1264, to represent a specific game. An elegant plaque fastened inside the commemorative box is etched with the specific details of the date and game. For example, I received game number 879 of 1264. My plaque reads, “Your jersey represents game #879 in the career of Michael Jordan. Game #879 was held March 18, 1996 as the Chicago Bulls defeated the Philadelphia 76ers 98-94. Michael Jordan’s stat line that day included 38 points, 11 rebounds, and 4 assists.” I was hoping to get the game where MJ dropped 55 on the Knicks right after his first comeback… so I could burn it! Oh well…
