The Michael Jordan Collection, Part 1

Last week I posted The MJ Challenge -
Think you have a big collection of MJ memorabilia/collectibles?

I feel confident saying that (assuming you're just an amateur collector like me) I have more MJ memorabilia than you. I've told plenty of people about my collection, but no one has ever really seen all of it.

In response to articles like this (claiming that the MJ shrine is a corporate sham), I want to post a completely non-corporate tribute to the NBA's G.O.A.T.

I'll start with an extensive post of my collection, and then feel free to send in pics of any cool MJ collectibles that you have, and I will post them on the blog.





And here is The Michael Jordan Collection, Part 1 ...
I started with all of the random / odd things that I had collected over the years. I then get into newspapers and magazines.
"The Michael Jordan Collection, Part 2" will be posted next week, featuring: the actual collectibles and limited-edition memorabilia, then finish things off with the MJ cards, easily my favorite part of my collection. Enjoy!




My first Jordan t-shirt, "Why drive? ..." -

And the greatest coat of all-time. I think I wore this everyday from 1991-1998, and might start wearing it again -

None of these pictures are showing up on my computer or phone. Anyone else having this problem?

It worked for me before, but now I don't see them either. I guess I will have to figure it out and re-post. Sorry about that.
