Michael Jordan, fourteen-time NBA All-Star and six-time Chicago Bulls champion, signed a patch card that sold for a record $ 2.7 million in an auction. Air Jordan memorabilia never comes cheap, but that high price tag could potentially hurt the pockets of even the rich.
Additionally, Upper Deck 1997-98 cards are rare, especially those signed by the GOAT itself. There are only 23 legitimate copies. The patch card includes a sample of Jordan’s 1992 NBA All-Star jersey and his autograph. Needless to say, this is a rare card.
NBA antique dealers believe this particular card is the first to feature Jordan’s game jersey and signature. Ken Goldin, president of Goldin Auctions, commented on the sale after it was auctioned on Monday.
Goldin said, “Owning this card is like owning a piece of MJ’s legacy, and we were very proud to have trusted this record-breaking transaction.” Another card, initially numbered 21/23, has set a high cost record when it sold for $ 2.1 million at Goldin Auctions earlier this year. The record was broken today.
Below, the model number is 0013364868. It also says “Beckett 8 Autograph”. The key words to look for are also “GAME JERSEYS”. The gray number 23 watermark is also perfect. Only something like that could sell that much. Of course, MJ’s autograph raised the price.
