The collectible figurine has not been officially released yet but there has been sightings on eBay that this is being sold. But no confirmation if it was legit though you won’t be seeing this in person not until August 31, 2013 at the Singapore Toys, Games, and Comic Convention (STGCC) which would be one of the exclusives to be in display at the ENTERBAY booth.
History behind the black jersey is being first worn in 1996 during the Chicago Bulls run to the 72-10 winning season which they have won their fourth NBA title this includes countless awards to become the greatest Championship team.
The next story behind the black jersey is where MJ break out his own pair of the original Air Jordan sneakers against the New York Knicks on March 8, 1998 scoring 42 points, eight rebounds and six assists at the Madison Square Garden celebrating his last game as a Bull using padded foam ankle collars to keep him protected on his way to the rim. He also has 3 steals and a block on the defensive end as he harassed New York star shooting guard Allan Houston all night long.
The "EB 8th Anniversary Edition" comes with two pairs of sneakers (Jordan 1 and Jordan 13 “Home” colorway), eight different hand gestures, a base, warm jersey, NBA ball, black jersey, red arm band, black with red strip knee protector and Michael Jordan figure with a different facial expression.
