The 1989-90 season was another magnificent one for Hall of Fame Chicago Bulls high flyer Michael Jordan as he captured his fourth consecutive scoring title & lead the Bulls to the Eastern Conference finals for the second year in a row. While the end result, getting bounced from the postseason for the third straight year by the Bad Boy Detroit Pistons may have been hard to swallow for Chicago hoops fans at the time, it provided Michael with just the motivation he would need to take the Bulls on a legendary run of their own.

1989-90 Michael Jordan Chicago Bulls Signed Game Worn Home Jersey (MEARS A10/JSA)

Style: White mesh full body shell with red/black/white/black/red sleeve and shoulder trim. Square cut tail. “BULLS” and “23” (front/reverse) are red on black applique. “JORDAN” appears on reverse in red block applique. The style of the shirt is consistent with period images and examples which have entered the hobby.

Supplier (Mac Gregor Sand Knit): Per the Official MEARS Tagging database, the style of the tag is correct for the 1989-1009 season. Mac Gregor / Sand Knit was the correct supplier of the Bulls for the 1989-1990 season.
