Vintage jersey and nostalgia company Mitchell & Ness has released a timely authentic retro of Michael Jordan‘s 1984 Team USA Olympic jersey and shorts, just in time for episodes three and four of ESPN’s critically-acclaimed The Last Dance docu-series.
The red uniform is notable because Michael wore it during the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, years before the Dream Team’s international fame and before professional athletes were permitted to compete (he was currently enrolled in classes at the University of North Carolina when he led the team to that year’s Gold Medal). The release keeps the deep-V neck-line popular from that era and features a ‘USA Basketball Classics’ patch complete with the year and Michael Jordan’s name (which doesn’t appear on the back of the jersey). Mitchell & Ness also debuted a matching pair of shorts with ‘USA’ written down the side piping, available now in select quantities.
You can purchase Michael Jordan’s No. 9 Team USA jersey from the 1984 USA Olympics today for $275 USD via Mitchell & Ness.
