You could own a pair of Michael Jordan’s shoes from Game 2 of the 1998 NBA Finals if you have a few million bucks lying around.
A two-part auction of game-used sports collectibles is being held by Sotheby’s, and Michael Jordan’s autographed sneakers are the centerpiece of a strong collection of priceless lots.
The projected price range for the game-used Air Jordans is $2 million to $4 million. The price to beat right now is a cool $1.8 million.
The sale can smash records if bids increase significantly. Kanye West’s Air Yeezy samples were thought to be the most expensive sneakers ever sold when they fetched $1.8 million at a private auction in 2021.
The “Victoriam” sale, which includes items like Tom Brady’s 2004 uniform and the shooting shirt Kobe Bryant wore the day of his historic 81-point performance in January 2006, is a gold mine for wealthy sports fans.
Pelé’s 1975 New York Cosmos debut jersey, which contributed to soccer’s increased popularity in the United States, is one of the other famous pieces up for auction.
The Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles’ football that was utilized for the Super Bowl this year will also be auctioned off.
Various memorabilia from NBA stars Carmelo Anthony and Luka Doncic, as well as that of tennis legend Rafael Nadal, is also up for auction. The auction ends on Tuesday.
