1980 Michael Jordan Signed Junior-Year High School Yearbook
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,410
Michael Jordan's stardom on the court was already well established in high school, giving this yearbook a great significance to his early years of his preprofessional career. Celebrity high school yearbooks have become an extremely popular area of collecting in recent years, and, because they were generally limited in number (the distribution normally dictated by the size of the senior class) they also tend to be quite rare. Offered here is a 1980 Emsley A. Laney High School yearbook dating from Michael Jordan's junior year that has been inscribed by Jordan to one of his classmates. Jordan's blue-ink inscription appears on page 167, located just to the right of an action photo of him dunking a basketball. In full: "To a very nice young lady who I will always remember. See you next year and stay sweet/Love Michael Jordan." Both the scripted text and Jordan's signature grade "10." Jordan is pictured four times in the yearbook; once among the individual portraits of his junior class, and three times in the section covering the basketball season. The leather-bound yearbook, titled Spinnaker 79-80 Volume 4 , is in Excellent to Mint condition and displays numerous interior inscriptions to the original owner. 9 x 12.25 inches. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,410
