‘Basketball Emperor’ Michael Jordan’s 6 sneakers worn in the final game, which confirmed his 6 NBA championships, came out on the market.
The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reported on the 27th (local time) that auction house Sotheby’s will unveil six Nike Air Jordans worn by Jordan in the 1990s NBA Finals in Dubai.
Dubbed the “Holy Grail” by sneaker collectors, Chicago Bulls publicist Tim Hallam personally received one of the sneakers from Jordan right after the Finals and kept one of them.
At the time, after the final game, you can see Jordan smiling while wearing only one sneaker on the data screen that contains the situation in the locker room.
Jordan even left his signature on the sneakers.
Hallam sold six pairs of sneakers to other collectors. However, the sale price and purchaser were not disclosed at the time.
Experts predict that these sneakers, nicknamed the ‘Dynasty Collection’, will sell for astronomical prices as they have a clear source and historical value.
Jordan Geller, who was recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records as the ‘World’s Largest Sneaker Collector’, said, “It’s at least $20 million, and it could be as much as $100 million.” .
Also, at last year’s Sotheby’s auction, a uniform top worn by Jordan in the first game of the 1998 NBA Finals was sold for $10.1 million (approximately 13.3 billion won), the highest price among collectible items actually worn in a sports game. 온라인바카라
Sotheby’s is also said to be expecting six of Jordan’s sneakers to be sold at a higher price than the uniform.
