Michael Jordan’s jersey has always been a popular collector’s item for fans around the world. Now, Nike is bringing back the ever so iconic jersey back to life.
Judging from the picture, the jersey looks nearly identical to the classic adidas model in the Chicago Bulls “Away” colorway. However, the jersey pictured below will feature the NFC chips that enable fans to access the unique experiences on the NikeConnect app. You can read more about the brand’s new connected jerseys here.
Nike NBA jerseys will become available in retailers beginning September 29 but pricing has yet to be announced.

Sorry Nike, this is a big NO from me. MJ never rocked with the newer style jerseys with the Swoosh on the front and NBA logo on the back. As a Jordan jersey collector since the mid 90s, MJ's jersey is a classic and it needs to done right. Could be said for a lot of things but I'm very disappointed.
