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 Air Jordan XI Retro Low has been one of the most wanted and popular sneakers of the year and looks to continue that trend with the upcoming release of the “Infrared 23.”
Dubbed by some as the “Un-Space Jams,” the shoe does bear a striking similarity to the revered “Space Jam” XIs made famous by Jordan’s appearance in the animated movie of the same name. Highlighted by a near all black upper, cement print hit on the back heel, and a clear blue outsole, the demand for the shoe will be high. Make arrangements now as this shoe is set to drop this Saturday, June 14th.
The release date of the Nike “What The” LeBron XI is in limbo. As of now, Nike has not announced the official release date of the sneaker (or one that it’s sticking to).
Are you anticipating the release?

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.

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.
