Jordan, however, did wear two different numbers during his iconic career. He wore No. 45 when he returned to the Bulls in 1995 after a brief retirement. But Jordan switched back to No. 23 later that season and continued to wear the number for the rest of his career.
However, in a Valentine's Day game against the Orlando Magic during the 1989-1990 season -- before he even wore No. 45 -- the Bulls great was forced to wear the No. 12. It was the only instance he donned a jersey number outside of 23 and 24. And interestingly enough, Jordan's name wasn't even on the back of the jersey.
Here's how the story goes: Somehow Jordan's game jersey went missing and without a replacement No. 23 top, the Bulls had to give him the only jersey they had available before the game, which was a non-specific No. 12. The number change didn't make much of a difference to Jordan, as he scored 49 points but the Bulls still lost, 135-129.
In honor of that moment in Jordan's career and because of Valentine's Day, throwback retailer Mitchell & Ness are selling authentic No. 12 Bulls jerseys, which retail for $300. Just like Jordan's No. 12 jersey, it doesn't even have his name on it.
And while $300 may seem like a lot, especially since the jersey doesn't even have Jordan's name on it, hardcore Bulls fans will definitely be interested in the one-of-a-kind memorabilia.
