Beautiful 1983 University of North Carolina studio portrait photograph in uniform of young Michael Jordan who was set to make the jump the next year to the NBA and change the world. Condition and quality are both outstanding and this is being offered here for the first time ever, fresh out of a North Carolina newspaper archive and removed directly from the envelope sent to the paper by the University as part of their "press kit" in 1983 and the envelope comes with the photo which has a 1983 postmark! Condition and quality make this a 10/10 and it was issued (similar to a basketball card) and would fit nicely into even the most advanced collection of sports memorabilia. Items like this (of which there are maybe 30-40 known in the world) remain a tremendous value as this is three times rarer than a 1986 Fleer card graded a PSA 10!
