When’s an NBA game program different? Steiner Auctions knows …

This probably looks like many other NBA game programs from the late 1970s and early 1980s but it’s very different than other simple pieces of memorabilia picked up at a game from the past.

It’s from a Washington Bullets game — the cover showcases the visiting team in this case — played on Oct. 26, 1984, and it’s on the block now via Steiner Auctions.

Why?

This game marked the NBA debut of Chicago Bulls star Michael Jordan — the greatest to play the game — and it was a 16-point night in a 109-93 victory for his team.

The program is even dated by its previous owner, a team statistician, and carries a hefty price tag despite its being listed in “VG/EX” condition by Steiner.

It opens at $1,000 and that’s where it sits with about eight days remaining in the auction at this time.
