Michael Jordan’s Game-Worn Championship Air Jordans Set Global Auction Record

In a historic auction moment, a complete set of Michael Jordan’s championship Air Jordan sneakers, worn during the clinching victories of all six NBA titles and six NBA Finals MVPs, has sold for a staggering $8,032,800. The sale, facilitated by the renowned auction house Sotheby’s, stands as a global record for game-worn sneakers, underscoring the enduring legacy of one of basketball’s greatest players.

The iconic shoes were worn by Michael Jordan during the decisive moments of each of his six career NBA Finals championships, adding significant historical value to the collection. The auction price not only reflects the scarcity and significance of these game-worn sneakers but also cements Michael Jordan’s unparalleled impact on the sport of basketball.

This sale follows the trend of high-value transactions for Michael Jordan memorabilia, with the basketball legend’s 1998 NBA Finals opening game jersey from the famed “Last Dance” season still holding the world record for any game-worn sports memorabilia. The jersey fetched an astonishing $10.1 million in a previous auction held in September 2022.
