A Signed Pair Of Original Jordans From ‘Space Jam’ Are Up For Auction

LeBron James’ new Space Jam sequel might be conquering the box office right now, but nothing can ever top the original Space Jam starring Michael Jordan. The family sports-comedy remains a favorite 25 years after its release, and now a significant piece of memorabilia from the original film is up for auction.

A pair of Air Jordan 11 player samples made by Nike for Michael Jordan to wear in Space Jam have gone under the hammer at Sotheby’s, and they’re expected to fetch a king’s ransom. The shoes are in deadstock condition, meaning they’ve never been worn. But they were designed for Jordan’s specifications, produced in a colorway that was only ever worn by him and never sold in stores, and the Chicago Bulls great even signed them for good measure. The size 13 kicks come in a custom Tune Squad-branded wooden box with velvet lining, along with a certificate of authenticity. Sotheby’s states that only a handful of similar shoes exist in the world, making them some of the rarest and most coveted Air Jordans on the planet. The auction is live now at Sotheby’s, with bidding already reaching $100,000 with six days to go.

Purchase: $100,000+
