NEW YORK (AP) — Sneakers worn by Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Scottie Pippen while they played for the Dream Team are being auctioned.

The sneakers, each signed by the Hall of Fame wearer, are part of the Lelands 2020 Spring Classic Auction that runs through June 19. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the sneakers will benefit COVID-19 relief efforts.

Jordan, Johnson, and Pippen wore the sneakers during the Tournament of Americas, which the U.S. team won to qualify for the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona. The Americans won gold there in the first Olympics to feature NBA players.

The sneakers were given to a team staff member in the locker room after the tournament championship game in Portland, Oregon.

Also on the auction block are signed Jordan sneakers from his days at North Carolina, plus a White Sox warmup jersey from Jordan’s time in the baseball minor leagues.

More information and items available in the auction can be found on Lelands’ website.
