Ever wanted to own a pair of Michael Jordan’s game-worn basketball shoes?
Now you can ... if you’ve got a couple thousand dollars to spare.
Leland’s, a sports auction house, recently listed a pair of game-worn shoes from Jordan’s freshman season at North Carolina in 1981-1982. The shoes are also signed and inscribed by Jordan, who hit the game-winning shot in the national championship against Georgetown that season.
Bidding starts at $15,000 and will continue until March 23.
Never miss a local story.
During Jordan’s freshman season, he averaged 13.5 points and 4.5 rebounds for the eventual national champions. Jordan was also named ACC Freshman of the Year that season.
Jordan played two more seasons under legendary coach Dean Smith at UNC before being selected No. 3 overall by the Chicago Bulls in the 1984 NBA Draft.
He would go on to win six NBA championships as a player with the Bulls before retiring for good in 2003. Jordan is now the majority owner of the Charlotte Hornets.
