Michael Jordan’s final Chicago Bulls basketball jersey has sold for a whopping $173,240 at an auction.
ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that an unnamed individual bought the jersey at an auction on Sunday, making it the highest paid price for a Jordan collectible at an auction.
“No one who has been out of the game fewer than 15 years has had items sell for these kinds of prices,” said Ken Goldin of Goldin Auctions. “Michael Jordan is the collectible equivalent of Babe Ruth.”
Jordan played for the University of North Carolina Tar Heels in college and shot to massive international fame while playing for the Chicago Bulls in the NBA.
He is currently the principal owner and chairman of the Charlotte Hornets.
