Michael Jordan has been buzzing since the release of the ESPN documentary “The Last Dance” that reminded everyone why many proclaim him the “GOAT” of pro basketball. Everyone saw Jordan and the killer instinct he was known for during part 1 of the series.
Number 23 was also apart of the iconic Dream Team from 1992. Of course, this was the first USA Olympic Basketball team that featured athletes from the NBA. Superstars like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, and Charles Barkley were all on the roster, making this the greatest basketball team of all time.
It was just two weeks ago, Robert Edward Auctions began an auction for a game-worn autographed MJ jersey from the Olympics, with bidding starting at $25K. In the end, the jersey sold for a whopping $216,000.
“Michael Jordan is arguably the most iconic athlete of all-time, winning six NBA titles and two Olympic Gold medals,” Robert Edward Auctions president Brian Dwyer explained. “Collectors relished a rare opportunity to own Jordan’s jersey from the 1992 Dream Team – the greatest basketball team ever assembled.”
