Michael Jordan Signs His Jordan x Converse Sneaker, Talks About His Historic Shot In 1982
Didn’t we tell you that it’d be next to impossible to get a pair of the Jordan x Converse sneakers that Michael Jordan is currently auctioning off on eBay? That’s what we said yesterday when we featured the sneakers, which you see above. Well, guess what? We weren’t lying. As of last night, the sneakers were selling for upwards of $4000 on the auction site. And there are still four days left before the auctions for the sneakers will end, so…yeah. Unless you’ve got a major bankroll, you won’t be getting your hands onto a pair. At this rate, those things could end up going for upwards of five figures.
All good, though. Because while you might not be able to get the Jordan x Converse sneakers, you can get a closer look at MJ signing the sneakers recently and talking about the shot that he made during the 1982 NCAA Championship Game between MJ’s University of North Carolina Tar Heels and the Georgetown Hoyas when he wore them. While he put his John Hancock on all 23 pairs of the sneakers that are up for auction, he also took some time to talk about how he made history back in ’82 as “Mike Jordan.”
Take a look at the video below. It’s short. But, at this point in his career, we’re happy to hear MJ talking about some of the things that he’s been able to accomplish over the years. He might not be doing very much with the Charlotte Bobcats right now (check out the sports post we put up today about it!) but he obviously has plenty of stories to tell about his career. And the one about the 1982 game is legendary. So check out the video and then go check out the Jordan x Converse auctions to see how much his classic sneakers sell for.
