A Pair Of Michael Jordan’s Game-Worn ‘Chicago’ Air Jordan 1s Are Up For Auction

In 1984, Peter Moore was tasked with penning a new pair of sneakers exclusively for a 21-year-old Michael Jordan, ultimately resulting in the now-legendary Air Jordan 1. Now on its 34th generation, the original Air Jordan is one of the most influential sneaker designs of all-time, and though it’s been produced in hundreds of variations, one of the most significant pairs of Air Jordans in existence has just hit the online auction block: a game-worn pair of Michael Jordan’s 1985 Air Jordan 1s.

These autographed Air Jordan 1s are adorned in the “Chicago” color scheme and were worn by the sports legend in the 1985-86 season – the same period where Jordan set his still unbroken record for most points in a playoff game with 63 (a feat achieved against the era’s extremely competitive Celtics). Inside the shoe is emblazoned with the coding: “850204 TYPS,” with the “85” denoting its year of production, the “0204” representing that it was between February and April, “TY” standing for “Tom Yang” factory and “PS” denoting “Player Sample.” Michael Jordan’s Game-Worn 1985 Nike Air Jordan 1s are currently up for auction online through Sotheby’s, where, as of the time of writing, bidding has reached $160,000, with well-over five days remaining on the sale.

Purchase: $160,000+
