    Jordans Catch Some More Air

    Posted on December 23rd, 2013 by Goldman Buyer

    A bidding war at Grey Flannel Auctions in New York ended when an unidentified client offered up $104, 765 for a pair of red and black Air Jordans, worn and signed by none other than Michael Jordan himself.

    Michael Jordan's Red & Black Air Shoes

    The sneakers were worn in a June 11, 1997 NBA Finals game five between the Chicago Bulls and the Utah Jazz, where the Bulls won 90 to 88. The game has been called the “flu game” because Jordan almost didn’t play due to nausea and fatigue. After the game the Bulls went on to win the NBA championship.

    The bid is the highest price ever paid for a pair of game-worn shoes from any sport. The previous record-holder was also a pair of Jordans, which sold for $31,070 in November.

    Customer Testimonial

    Had a Great Experience

    I have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

    I'll be back

    Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.

    I would do business with them again

    I found the Chicago Gold Gallery to be a very honest and reputable shop. I would highly recommend this store to anyone buying and selling their possessions.
