Pair of “Last Dance” Jordan Sneakers Sells for Record-Breaking Number
Michael Jordan keeps breaking records.
According to ESPN, Sotheby’s auction house recently sold a game-worn pair of Jordan sneakers for a record-breaking $2,238,000 million. The Chicago Bulls legend wore the sneaker during the second half in Game 2 of the 1998 NBA Finals, which the Bulls went on to win 93-88. Jordan scored 37 points in that performance with 13 of those points coming in the 4th quarter to help the Bulls even the series.
The shoes now join a long list of crazy pricetags for Jordan memorabilia. In September of 2022, Jordan’s jersey from Game 1 of the 1998 NBA Finals sold for $10.1 million. This marked the highest price ever paid for a piece of sports memorabilia. A Jordan rookie card also topped a million within the last year, while a complete ticket from his first-ever NBA game was going for upwards of $200,000.
