Michael Jordan signed, game-worn shoes from rookie season with Bulls could sell for $600,000
A pair of game-worn Air Jordan 1s, which are also signed by the Bulls icon, is up for sale and they could fetch up to $600,000, per TMZ:
“The game-worn, autographed pair of red, white and black AJ 1’s — donned by Michael Jordan during the ’84-’85 NBA season — already has a $122k bid on Goldin Auctions website … with over 18 days left in the auction.
“But, there’s something special about GA’s pair … ’cause Jordan actually signed the sneakers on-camera during a television interview with a local L.A. sports reporter 7 years after he donned them in an NBA game.
“The auction runs through August 22 … and we’re told the final number could be over $600k!!”
Jordan had one of the best rookie seasons in NBA history with the Bulls back in 1984-85. He averaged 28.2 points, 6.5 rebounds and 5.9 assists, en route to winning Rookie of the Year.
All Jordan memorabilia tends to do really well at auctions since His Airness is universally recognized as the best basketball player of all time, and the release of “The Last Dance” has only helped that this year.
The run Jordan had with the Bulls is the stuff of legends. MJ won six titles, six Finals MVPs, five regular-season MVPs and one Defensive Player of the Year Award in Chicago.
Overall, Jordan averaged 30.1 points, 6.2 rebounds and 5.3 assists during his NBA career with the Bulls and Washington Wizards. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2009.
