An unworn pair of 1985 Air Jordan 1s featuring Michael Jordan‘s rookie signature has appeared on eBay with an asking price of $1 million USD.
The shoe, in its original make and colorway, has become scarce in the sneaker world and according to the listing, there is only 15 to 20 deadstock pairs of these Air Jordan 1s in this particular SKU ever made. The pair on eBay is reportedly one of two verified in “pristine condition.” The MJ signature was authenticated by PSA/DNA.
Since the shoe features an “850204 TYPS” label, where the PS stands for the “player sample” it suggests the shoe might have been personally designed for Jordan. The shoes come mismatched, with one size 13 and the other size 13.5. It should be noted that this claim has yet to be confirmed.
With the continual rise in sports memorabilia over the past few months, the pair of shoes could have a chance to “outdo a pair of game-used Jordans that sold for $615,000 USD last year.” Just recently, the Chicago Bulls legend’s rookie card sold for $738,000 USD at auction, so the $1 million USD selling price for the shoe comes as no surprise.
The Hall of Famer was a six-time NBA champion with the Chicago Bulls and is currently serving as the governor of the Charlotte Hornets.
