Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson needs no introduction. One of the best NBA players ever, he remains a very popular athlete many years after retiring. He won 5 NBA titles and three MVP awards during his incredible career. 

Magic’s enduring popularity and regular TV appearances have resulted in strong demand for his Lakers jerseys, shirts, collectibles, basketball cards and signed memorabilia. We’ve reviewed the best items and provided links to buy. If you’re a fan of Magic you’re going love this guide.  

Magic Johnson Jerseys

Like all retired players, getting your hands on a classic Magic jersey requires research and good timing. We have the research part covered – the best officially licensed jerseys are listed below. 

Limited edition jerseys can be stocked at any time, so check back often for updates. We review the top retailers daily looking for new releases. 

Men's Los Angeles Lakers Johnson Mitchell & Ness Gold 1984/85 Hardwood Classics Authentic Jersey

This premium, authentic Magic Johnson jersey provides you with an exact match of the jersey he wore on the court during the 1984/85 season. One of Magic's best seasons, it ended with a championship after a legendary NBA Finals against the Celtics. An incredible item for any Lakers fan.  

>>> If you want this gold colored jersey at a lower price point, you can buy the Mitchell & Ness "Swingman" version. It's a replica version of this jersey - you get the same color and style from the 84/85 season. 

Men's Los Angeles Lakers Johnson Mitchell & Ness Purple 1984 Hardwood Classics Authentic Jersey

The authentic Mitchell & Ness Magic jersey can also be purchased in the purple edition of the Lakers 1984/85 jersey.  Sizes are currently limited, so if you like this one and see your size don't wait! 

Men's Los Angeles Lakers Magic Johnson Mitchell & Ness White 1983 NBA All-Star Game Hardwood Classics Authentic Jersey

Rare throwback jersey alert! This Magic Johnson all star jersey was just released by Mitchell & Ness. It's from the 1983 NBA All-Star Game played in L.A. where Magic put on a show finishing with 17 points and 16 assists. It's an authentic jersey meaning it's the same quality as the Magics's on court jersey. It could be years before this edition is for sale again. 

Men's USA Basketball Johnson Mitchell & Ness Navy Home 1992 Dream Team Authentic Jersey

Finally, we found the original Magic Johnson Team USA jersey from the 1992 Dream Team. Rarely available for sale, it's currently available in a full selection of sizes. A great jersey that honors the best Team USA squad ever created.  

Magic Johnson Shirts and Fan Gear

Similar to jerseys, the inventory of shirts, hoodies and other fan gear for a retired legend like Magic changes frequently. Only limited runs of products are stocked and items can end up out of stock for up to a year or longer.   

Below we’ve listed our top picks with links to see additional items. All products we review are sold by licensed sellers of NBA products. 

Men's Los Angeles Lakers Johnson Mitchell & Ness Purple Mesh T-Shirt

One of the best, high quality name and number shirts you can buy. A premium shirt made my Mitchell & Ness. They launched the mesh shirt line during 2020 and it's been a huge hit. As a result we highly recommend grabbing one of these before they're gone. 

Men's Johnson Mitchell & Ness Red Western Conference 1988 All-Star Hardwood Classics Mesh Name & Number T-Shirt

Another mesh Magic Johnson shirt made by Mitchell & Ness, this one honors his 1988 NBA All-Star Game appearance. An awesome looking shirt that likely won't be stocked again. So if you're looking for a rare and collectible Magic shirt this is a great pick. 

Men's USA Basketball Johnson Mitchell & Ness Navy 1992 Dream Team Name & Number T-Shirt

Almost sold out - a slick 1992 Team USA shirt from the original Dream Team. We are hoping a full set of sizes will be restocked soon. This shirt has been one of the most popular Magic items at the NBA Store the past few months.

Rookie Card

1980-81 Topps #6 Larry Bird Rookie / Magic Johnson Rookie BGS BCCG 9 Near Mint+

You're looking at the top Magic card to collect - his 1980/81 rookie edition from Topps. The '80s card market was very different than the market today where a top player will have 10+ different rookie cards. This one holds unique value to collectors because it also represents Larry's Bird's rookie card. And to top it off, you get a photo of Dr. J included as well. If you can find one in your price range this is an awesome card to own.

1981 Topps #21 EARVIN MAGIC JOHNSON PSA VG-EX 4 LAKERS First Solo Card
