UPDATE 2/2/24: Sotheby’s recently concluded the sale of The Dynasty Collection, a set comprising six championship Air Jordans worn and autographed by Michael Jordan.

The auction, held at Sotheby’s New York City location, achieved a groundbreaking price of $8 million, setting a new record for the most expensive game-worn sneakers ever sold. This collection, nearly a year in the making since its initial announcement, has captured the attention of sports enthusiasts and collectors alike.

Brahm Wachter, Sotheby’s Head of Modern Collectables, expressed admiration for the significance of The Dynasty Collection, hailing it as a testament to Michael Jordan’s unparalleled legacy in the world of basketball. He emphasized the collection’s symbolic importance and its recognition as a pinnacle of sports memorabilia. The auction’s success, surpassing initial estimates, reflects the enduring popularity and cultural impact of Michael Jordan and his iconic footwear.

Prior to the auction, the historic sneakers were displayed at various locations worldwide, further enhancing their historical value and resonance within the sports community. While the sale fell slightly below the record set by Jordan’s 1998 NBA Finals Game 1 jersey, which sold for $10.1 million in September 2022, it stands as a remarkable testament to Jordan’s enduring influence and the enduring allure of his championship sneakers.
