The full monty hoop from Michael Jordan’s “last shot” a bit too rich for your wallet? Maybe a pair of MJ’s Concords from the 1995-96 season will be a bit more feasible. And storable.
Heritage Auctions, who is handling the hoop auction, is hosting this pair among its vast memorabilia offerings. As you can see from the photos here, these look incredibly crispy at 20 years old – nylon uppers still mostly white and the soles even carry hints of iciness. Not only did MJ wear these size 13.5 XIs during the historic Bulls 72-10 run, he signed them, and they’re authenticated by Upper Deck.
Heritage estimates the value at upwards of $20,000 – but if the $71,554 that MJ’s Nike Air Ships fetched in April is any indication, these could leap past $100K without breaking a sweat. For context, his Air Jordan 12 “Flu Game” shoes sold for $104,765 in 2013.
