Michael Jordan autographed baseball bat resurfaces after 26 years
We all know how the great Michael Jordan took a hiatus from basketball during his prime to play baseball. “The Last Dance” made sure to highlight this significant juncture in MJ’s career. The show also caused any and all Jordan memorabilia to skyrocket in value.
One such item is a game-used baseball bat that was autographed by MJ himself. Hollywood actor/stuntman Tony Todd is the proud owner of this piece of sports history, and as it turns out, he completely forgot he even had it:
“My God, I had totally forgotten I had the M.J. bat to be honest,” Todd said, via Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY Sports. “When the guy mentioned it, I sprinted through the house like Carl Lewis.
“I’m running around the house, going, ‘Where’s the bat? Where’s the bat?’ I couldn’t find it.”
Todd learned that it was lying inside the trunk of his car all along. The Michael Jordan bat had been there for 13 long years.
Todd has no idea how much value this unique piece of memorabilia has, and he’d like to find out. Todd will be cashing in on it, with the bat set to be auctioned in the near future.
“I’m not in desperate need to sell it, and I don’t want to give it away,” Todd said about his intention to put up the item for auction, “but there can’t be that many Jordan bats signed.”
Todd is about to get a nice chunk of change for this piece of Michael Jordan memorabilia.
