Good luck shooting for Christie’s next coveted collector’s item up for auction.
The auction house announced that it will be selling a pair of Air Jordans worn by His Airness at a game on April 18, 1998 – Jordan’s last regular-season game in his final championship season, pictured in a documentary The last dance.
The kicks – specifically, the Air Jordan XIII in âWhite / True Red / Blackâ, a colourway affectionately known as âHe’s Got Gameâ – are signed by MJ and come with a certificate from Sports Authority Authentication Services.
Jordan initially gifted the sneakers to Hall of Fame basketball player and sports commentator Isiah Thomas, who covered the game MJ played while wearing the said shoes. Thomas then passed the Air Jordans on to his son, Joshua, as a birthday present.
Valued between $ 300,000 and $ 500,000, the shoes will headline Christie’s next online sale, Handbags x HYPE: The Luxury Remix.
The auction will feature a mix of classic fashion collectibles, such as limited edition versions of HermÃ¨s’ Birkin and Kelly bags, as well as streetwear-focused items including Supreme’s famous pinball machine, a motorcycle. Supreme x Honda and a full set from Kanye West. adidas YEEZY 350.
The auctions start on November 24 and end on December 9.
