A pair of Michael Jordan’s Converse Fastbreak Mid that he wore during the 1984 Olympics were sold for a whopping $190,373, which set a new auction record for game-used sneakers (by SCP Auctions). This record passes the game-worn and autographed Air Jordan 12 “Flu Game” that sold for $104,765 back in 2013.
“The record-shattering price proves that Michael Jordan has no equal in the marketplace for game-used basketball memorabilia,” said Dan Imler, vice president of SCP Auctions, which sold the shoes.
The historic sneakers are the last pair Jordan ever wore in amateur competition and represent perhaps his crowning achievement before turning pro. It marked the last time MJ was ever seen wearing a pair of Converse in a game.
