An unworn pair of the 1985 Air Jordan 1, autographed by Michael Jordan as a rookie, is on sale for an asking price of US $ 1 million.
The value of collectibles for GM items has peaked lately. A pair of 1986-87 rookie Fleer Michael Jordan cards were recently sold for $ 738,000 each. These cards were priced at a perfect Gem Mint 10, but the card value jump was astounding. They earned over $ 500,000 in the month of reselling a December auction.
Last week, a Mint 7 Jordan card sold for almost $ 1.5 million. It features a clear signature and a piece of the jersey Michael Jordan wore in the 1992 NBA All-Star Game.
Apparently one of two verified pairs with MJ’s rookie signature. https://t.co/m7SJQGmxTn

Details of this rare Air Jordan 1 sneaker for sale on Ebay
The original 1985 Air Jordan 1 sneakers have become rare in the sneaker world. Hypebeast reports that there are only 15-20 pairs of “dead” shoes (unworn and unopened) available in this first reference of the urban legend’s most iconic streetwear piece.
The shoe has an â850204 TYPSâ tag, where PS stands for âplayer sampleâ. This suggests the idea that these sneakers were personally designed for Michael Jordan himself. The pair are said to be mismatched, one at size 13 and the other at 13.5 – although this is unconfirmed.
The shoe is in the Air Jordan 1’s “Chicago White” colourway, which is one of its most popular looks. You can find the link for the shoe listed here.

The Air Jordan 1 shoes are by far the most styled sneakers in shoe history. This color is among the most emblematic of the shoe. It was designed by Tinker Hatfield for Jordan as a rookie. The other very famous colorway of the Air Jordan 1 shoe is the Royal Blue, which Michael himself loved to wear in public.
