Signed Michael Jordan Converse Sneakers from 1984 Olympics Could Fetch $100K at Auction (Pic)
A pair of Converse sneakers worn by Michael Jordan at the 1984 Summer Olympics are currently up for auction, and it is believed the final price could reach six figures.
Jordan wore the shoes during the USA’s gold medal game against Spain. They are the last shoes he wore as an amateur basketball player. They are also the last shoes he wore in a game before signing his endorsement deal with Nike the following year‚ which of course went on to become the most important endorsement deal in the history of sports, seeing as how it led to the creation of the multi-billion dollar Jordan Brand.
The size 13s are considered to be in excellent condition. Both feature Jordan’s signature.
Take a look:
The auction for Jordan’s ’84 Converse kicks opened on Wednesday with a bid of $10,000. As of 11:30 a.m. ET on Thursday, the bidding was already up to $31,368.
