There apparently is no limit to the Michael Jordan memorabilia market.
The jersey he wore in his final Bulls regular season game — not his last game, that was in the Finals, just from an April 18 game against the Knicks where he dropped 44 — went for crazy money, reports Darren Rovell of ESPN.
The jersey that Michael Jordan wore in his final regular-season game with the Chicago Bulls sold for $173,240 early Sunday.
The amount paid is the highest price paid for a Jordan collectible at auction, surpassing Jordan’s “flu game” shoes, which was sold last year for just under $105,000.
More than the flu game shoes? I’ll admit it, I don’t get it. I’m not much of a memorabilia guy, I admit, but that seems like crazy money for any jersey.
But as Nike will be more than happy to you that anything Jordan still sells. Like crazy.
