Michael Jordan Game Used Shoes on Auction
The world of sports memorabilia rarely offers an artifact as coveted as game-used equipment from a player who is unarguably the GOAT. Today we're sharing one of these treasured finds: a pair of 1992-93 game-used, twice-signed Air Jordan 8 sneakers from the legendary Michael Jordan himself.
The 1992-93 NBA season was truly remarkable for Jordan, as he completed his astounding trifecta of three consecutive NBA championships. It was the pinnacle of a spectacular year that saw him leading the NBA in both points per game (32.6) and steals per game (2.8).
This marked the close of a breathtaking seven-season streak where MJ stood at the apex of NBA points. Not only did this seal his legacy as one of the greatest players in the game's history, but it was also the year before Jordan's shocking move to leave basketball for a stint in professional baseball with the Chicago White Sox.
These size 13 Nike Air Jordan 8 sneakers were an integral part of his uniform during this iconic season. Time has taken its toll on the shoes, with the soles beginning to degrade over the intervening years, resulting in a mostly detached right sole and a modestly degraded left sole.
Yet the passage of time has not diminished their appeal. The allure lies in Jordan's signatures – a dual-autograph on the outstep of each shoe, inscribed in black marker. These sneakers come with a Letter of Authenticity (LOA) from the Chicago Bulls for the 1992-93 game use and Certificates of Authenticity from UDA (BAH55290, SHO35381) for Jordan's signature.
This is more than just a piece of sports memorabilia; it's a piece of history, a testament to an era of basketball that was dominated by the transcendent talent of Michael Jordan. It's a testament to a year of thrilling victories, record-breaking performances, and the unrivaled legacy of a player who soared both on the court and in the hearts of fans around the world
