Air Jordan 11: “Black Leather” Prototype

July 30th, 2014 By

Air Jordan 11: Black Leather Prototype

The Air Jordan 11 became one of the more iconic sneakers in the Jordan Brand arsenal. In fact, when Tinker initially showed MJ his first sample, word has it that Mike couldn’t wait until the next season and instead laced up the patent leather beauty in a playoff series against the Orlando Magic against the designer’s wishes. But what if the sneaker had a leather build instead of that cordura mesh to contrast the patent leather mudguard? And what if one of the most recognizable outsoles had been given a more traditional look at the time? Today’s rare sample comes from collector Randy Fernandez, and gets an all black treatment which looks like it came form the early stages of development of Mike’s eleventh signature. What do you think? Stick with us for a full rundown of this rare find after the jump.

July 24th, 2014 By

Michael Jordans Record $33 Million 1997 Bulls Contract Goes to Auction

Michael Jordan set a number of records in the NBA, but one that the business man in MJ is probably most proud of is garnering the most expensive contract in the league’s history – a record that still stands today. During the 1997-1998 season, Mike took home $33 million from one season of basketball, one that proved worth it as the Chicago Bulls brought home their 6th championship. The original contract is signed by Michael Jordan and the former Bulls general manager in Jerry Krause. According to ESPN, if you factor in inflation, that $33 million MJ made would be worth upwards of $49 million today. Hit the click for more info on this legendary piece of paper and head over to Heritage Auctions to start your bidding (that is if you have about $25,000 laying around).

Air Jordan 11: “Bred” – Game-Worn NBA Finals Autographed Pair

June 3rd, 2014 By

Air Jordan 11: Bred   Game Worn NBA Finals Autographed Pair

We’ve seen a plethora of Michael Jordan autographed pairs over the years, but it’s a well known fact that the man’s favorite sneaker was his eleventh – a silhouette that almost didn’t happen if the MLB strike hadn’t led Mike to switch back over to basketball. He loved them so much that he broke them out against Tinker’s wishes in the 1994-95 playoffs, a year when the Bulls fell disappointingly short of their goal to the Orlando Magic. The next year the Bulls would clinch the best record in NBA history at 72-10 and faced off against the Seattle Supersonics in the Finals. Game 3 was a blowout thanks to Mike’s 36 points, and he did so wearing this exact Air Jordan 11 “Bred” pair. Grey Flannel Auctions got a hold of this rare find and they’re autographed in silver on the back heel. Get a better look after the click and head over to Grey Flannel Auctions today to put your bid in on this historic pair of sneakers.

Upper Deck Releases 223 Michael Jordan Autographed Rookie Retro Jerseys

When Michael Jordan entered the NBA, it was hardly with the scrutiny that other star-caliber players do in today’s game. And while that’s partially due to the work that Mike put in during his legendary career that new players are analyzed so heavily, it’s always a nice nostalgic reminder when we see an apparel item hit market referencing Mike’s time in the 80s. Today we get word that Mike partnered with Upper Deck once again to release 223 authentic and autographed Mitchell and Ness jerseys from his rookie season (you  might notice that the look is a tad different than the Bulls jerseys today, as the number placement and arc was changed after MJ’s first year). Each jersey will be available for around $1,900. Hit the click for more info and let us know if you plan on grabbing a jersey in the comments.

Air Jordan 1 AJKO: “Chicago” – Original Pair from 1985 on eBay

April 25th, 2014 By

Air Jordan 1 AJKO: Chicago   Original Pair from 1985 on eBay

The Air Jordan 1 AJKO recently saw a number of retros to start February. And unlike the iterations from a few years back, these renditions of the all canvas upper didn’t feature that pre-yellowed midsole for a vintage look but instead opted for the fresh out of the box aesthetic. Just incase the actual vintage feel was your thing, today we get a look at a leftover straight from 1985, that features the classic “Chicago” colorway and seems to be in fairly good condition. The sneaker features cracking around the ‘Wings’ logo but the Nike Air branding and midsole still remains intact with only a bit of yellowing. Add in both pairs of laces and this pair is definitely a piece of memorabilia worth checking out. Find more of this 1985 gem after the click and if you’re truly feeling this Air Jordan 1 AJKO pair then know you can pick them up via elanacorleone on eBay.
