1986-87 Michael Jordan Chicago Bulls Team Issued Jersey

The jersey is a Chicago Bulls regular season home, pull over, white mesh jersey manufactured by Sandknit. The jersey features the NBA league logo on the chest. The jersey tagging is appropriate for Sandknit NBA jerseys 1985-89, tagged on the outside tail with the “Exclusively for the Chicago Bulls” tag.

The tagged size on the label is 44” body length, however the jersey measures to a 44 +2” size. This is unusual because most +2” Sandknit jerseys have an additional tag displaying 2” LB. The chest measurement is 20” and the torso measurement is 32.5”.

The front of the jersey has the team name “Bulls” in 4.375” applique lettering and back player’s name “Jordan” printed in 2.875” applique lettering. The jersey is number 23 6” applique on the front and 8” applique on the back.

There have been no alterations to the jersey and it shows light wear with slight stretching of the piping around the neck and arms and light perspiration marks on the white mesh.

This jersey dates to the 1986-87 NBA season based on the NBA logo on the left chest and the Sandknit jersey not having the year tag applied to the tail of the Bulls jersey. Prior to the 1986-87 NBA season, Rawlings manufactured the Chicago Bulls jerseys, and following the 1986-97 season the Sandknit jerseys featured the year tag.

The jersey matches other examples of Michael Jordan Chicago Bulls issued and game used jerseys, in numbering, lettering, and measurement, however it is missing the additional 2” LB tag.

The results of the jersey photo-match by Resolution Photomatching have come back "Inconclusive."
