Oldest known game-worn Michael Jordan Nike’s sell for $1.5M

A top-of the-line collectors item sold at a Sothebys auction in Aria, Las Vegas for nearly $1.5 million. He had a pair of Michael Jordans' game-worn Nikes, which he wore in his rookie year.


Tommie Tim III Lewis was a Denver Nuggets ball boy in 1984, when Jordan wore the white and red Nike Air Ships during his fifth NBA game on November 1, 1984. Jordan signed the shoes and gave them to Lewis. This is a rare item. Many people believe Jordan wore only one shoe on the court. The Air Jordan 1 did not make its debut on Jordan's feet until a few weeks later, against the Philadelphia 76ers on November 17, 1984. The public didn't see the first Air Jordan shoe until 1985.

These sneakers would fetch a lot of money from sneakerheads, but I don't know many who would be willing to pay $1.47 million to own them. You don't have to worry about your income if you spend that much money on collectible sneakers.

In case you were wondering, Nick Fiorella, a collector, is the lucky man who owns this rare pair Michael Jordan shoes according to Sothebys Auction House. This is business as usual for Fiorella. Nick purchased a rare Luka Doncic rookie card in March for $4.6million. Yes, that's right.

Fiorella should have paid cash and made it rain. This is the only way to celebrate such a win. You need to play C.R.E.A.M. Wu-Tang Clan to officially make it official. I don't think it would have gone down this way.


This rare sneaker find will probably end up in a glass case for the next few decades until Fiorella or a relative can cash in on it. These are the things that humans spend their money on

Cash rules all around me, C.R.E.A.M. Get the money, dollar bill yall.
