On Thursday it will be 20 years since Michael Jordan returned to the NBA for the first time. The NBA’s best player returned in style faxing in a letter that simply said “I’m Back”.

But that wasn’t the only thing that was unique about Jordan’s return. He sported the #45 for that season due to the Chicago Bulls retiring his #23 jersey already. To help commemorate the anniversary, Mitchell and Ness will release a special limited edition Michael Jordan #45 jersey.
The jersey will cost $300 and will release this Thursday.
Via press release:
Jonathan Yuska, Head of Mitchell & Ness, comments, “Michael Jordan’s return to the NBA on March 19, 1995 is a memorable and iconic moment in the history of the NBA. We are proud and honored to be able to commemorate this moment by recreating Jordan’s number 45 jersey. We hope fans of MJ and the NBA enjoy wearing it as much as we enjoyed bringing it back.”
