Christie’s Shines a Light on Michael Jordan’s Career with Its ‘Six Rings’ Auction

Before Tom Brady started parading around with seven rings, Michael Jordan’s career was (and still is) often heralded as the most impressive in the world of professional sports. Now, that’s not to say championships are everything, but we’d be lying if we said they didn’t play a pretty significant role. That said, Christie’s has set up its wildly exclusive Six Rings: Legacy of the GOAT auction in dedication to His Airness’ unrivaled on-court mystique.

The Six Rings lots befittingly consist of six different relics, including a signed pair of OG Chicago 1s, a game-worn pair of uber-exclusive XIII lows from the 1998 NBA Finals, and, standing out amongst the fray, a signed Upper Deck Fleer rookie card that is expected to go for more than $2 million. Moreover, there were only 23 of these cards released, and this particular example is one of 14 known to be graded, boasting the second-highest rating in existence.

As far as the rest of the auction is concerned, there are other fan favorites that sneakerheads have gawked at for decades. These include the iconic Bordeaux VIIs, Fire Red Vs, and Tinker Hatfield-designed Flint XIIIs, each of which is embellished with MJ’s signature for the sake of the lot. If you thought picking up Jordans on the SNKRS app was difficult, then this auction forces you to think again.

With the Eastern Conference Finals just kicking off, it seems appropriate to acknowledge the man who dominated the conference for the better part of a decade. The bidding wars for each of these lots begin on June 1 and are expected to last two weeks until June 14, with the lowest estimate sitting at $10,000.

Purchase: $10,000+
