Michael Jordan’s “Last Dance” T-shirt sells for a record $10.1 million

Sept 15 (Reuters) – Michael Jordan’s jersey from the 1998 NBA Finals opener went up for auction on Thursday for more than $10 million, making it the most expensive piece of sports memorabilia in history. .

The previous record was set earlier this year at Sotheby’s, with Argentine footballer Diego Maradona’s shirt in the 1986 World Cup quarter-final match against England, which fetched a staggering $9.3 million.

“In the weeks since we announced the auction, there has been a palpable excitement not only from sports fans, but also from collectors, who are eager to own a rare piece of history,” said Brahm Wachter, Head Street Wear and Modern Collectibles at Sotheby’s.

“Once again, today’s record cements Michael Jordan as the undisputed GOAT, proving that his name and unparalleled legacy are as relevant today as they were nearly 25 years ago.”

Jordan’s jersey was expected to fetch between $3 million and $5 million at Sotheby’s “INVICTUS” auction and eclipsed the $3.7 million for a Kobe Bryant Los Angeles Lakers jersey, the record for a basketball jersey for auction

The record for any Jordan item has also been broken, after an autographed card from 1997-1998 sold for $2.7 million.
