Michael Jordan’s game-used Converse shoes from 1984 Olympics already setting record via SCP

Update (June 11): The shoes sold for $190,373 after the auction closed this weekend.

They’re not Air Jordans but they’re already in some rare air as an SCP Auctions clock counts down.

They’re Michael Jordan’s game-worn and dual-signed Converse shoes from the 1984 Olympics — specifically the gold-medal-winning-game against Spain — and they’re on the auction block and already have set a record for a pair of game-used shoes. And that’s with more than two days remaining before the auction closes.

How much?

After 18 bids, they are already at $144,222.

According to SCP, the shoes “come with impeccable provenance from the ballboy, who worked nearly every USA game at the Forum” in Inglewood, Calif. That ballboy is the son of Hall of Famer Gail Goodrich, who supervised operations for the Olympic tournament. Each shoe also comes with full letters of authentication from PSA/DNA.

According to SCP, the previous record — also one held by Jordan’s shoes — was $104,765 for his Jordans from Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals. Click here to view the auction.
