The Jordan Collection (Part 8): '91 Sports Illustrated Michael Jordan Sportsman Of The Year Hologram Proof

In this 8th installment of The Jordan Collection post series, I'm featuring this commemorative printer's proof of the Michael Jordan hologram featured on the 1991 Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year cover. The proof is exact in every way to the hologram on the cover of the magazines, with the one exception of the proof being double sided. You can read an earlier post I did on the actual Sportsman of the Year Sports Illustrated magazine by clicking here to get a background on the item.

The printers proof hologram featured in this post is rare. How rare you might ask? I've only seen three of these on eBay in the three years I've been searching for one of these. So although I don't have an exact number to provide you, I'm assuming there aren't too many of these out there. That makes this approximately 5' x 3'' Jordan hologram a very unique item.

The slide show above includes 18 images of the hologram in which I tried to capture as many of the images in the hologram as possible. Hopefully you can see the clarity, detail and vivid colors this awesome Jordan hologram possesses.

Happy collecting and… "Enjoy Every Bounce of the Ball".


  1. Cool & unique item... how much do these usually sell for?

  2. @Fuji, I bought mine, shipped, for under $12. Not crazy expensive. I know there is a seller that had a $100 price tag on one of the 3 I've ever seen. He wouldn't go any lower than $50. That was just too much for me.

  3. Interesting... I'll have to keep an eye out for one of these... you know me.. I'm a fan of 90's technology... and holograms fit the bill.
