Expected to sell for $150,000 to $200,000, the pair is a ‘Player Sample’ or ‘Player Exclusive’ pair, meaning that it was cut by Nike with Michael Jordan in mind and to his specifications.
Per Sotheby’s description
The pair here is in perfect deadstock condition, and never used. The coding on the interior states BBMN04-950112-FTPS. BBM means “Basketball Mens” and “950112-FTPS” references that the shoes were produced in 1995 (“95”). “FTPS” means that they were made out of the Feng Tay (“FT”) factory, and are Player Samples (“PS”) made for Mr. Jordan. The shoes are in Michael Jordan’s Air Jordan 11 size 13 (Jordan would wear 13, 13.5, and a combination of both at different points in his career), and have been signed by Michael Jordan in silver ink. They are offered in a custom wood and velvet box.
The bid is currently at $65,000, approximately R900 000 in rands.
