The things people will pay for can sometimes gross you out, but whatever floats their boat.
Somewhere out there may be a Michael Jordan superfan who is willing to shell out hundreds of dollars in order to obtain his “personally worn” boxer shorts.
An auction insider told Page Six that the Bulls legend’s shorts were “regularly” worn by Jordan and show signs of “heavy use.”
Via the report:
“The blurb also says that this item is “about as close to greatness as one can get,” which seems fair enough but only if what you mean by “greatness” is MJ’s sweaty Chicago Bulls.
The good news — or the bad news if that’s “your thing” — is that they have a dry cleaning tag in them, so they’ve probably been washed.
The reserve price is $500 which, we’re just going to go ahead and note for no particular reason, is also about the cost of a couple of decent therapy sessions. Spend wisely.
The shorts are part of a sale of Jordan’s belongings that ended up in the hands of his one-time bodyguard, John Michael Wozniak (who was memorably seen beating Jordan in a game of coin-toss in the Bulls doc, “The Last Dance”). Other items in the sale include coats, suits, ties and golf clubs that once belonged to the GOAT.”
John Michael Wozniak has previously sold items related to Jordan through the same auctioneer. How he even ended up with Jordan’s used boxer shorts is between him and Michael Jordan.
