Earlier in the month, we showed you an auction for a pair of Michael Jordan signed, game-worn “Playoff” XIs. The sneakers, which were being auctioned by former NBA player Eric Snow, are from Game 3 of the 1996 NBA Finals where the G.O.A.T. dropped 38 on the then-Seattle Supersonics.
The auction recently came to a close and let’s just say we’re not shocked at how much the sneakers fetched. The collectible Air Jordan sneakers sold for a total of $17,126. Considerably lower than the $104,765 that the “Flu Game” Jordan XIIs went for, but still far from chump change.

The Chicago Bulls’ historic run in the ’95-’96 season is one of the best years any NBA team has ever had. From setting an NBA record with 72 regular season wins to capturing the championship, this was Michael Jordan’s way of putting the Bulls back on the map. Now, you have a chance to own a piece of history from this magical season. Take a look at MJ’s signed, game-used “Playoff” XIs from Game 3 of the Finals against the Seattle Supersonics. If you remember, this was the game where he dropped 36 points.
The size 13.5 sneakers feature Jordan’s autograph on the medial side of the right shoe and the patent leather still looks shiny as ever. As of now, the current bid is at $6,655 with over 15 days left to go. If you have the money and want to own a piece of history, then head over to Grey Flannel Auctions.
