Game-worn Michael Jordan sneakers selling at auction for exorbitant prices is hardly a new phenomenon, but the pair you’re about to see has the potential to be one of the most shocking sales yet.

Offered by sports memorabilia specialists SCP Auctions is a pair of Converse sneakers worn and signed by NBA icon Michael Jordan during the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. The pair in question is said to be worn by Jordan during an August 10, 1984 Olympics final round showdown against Spain.

During the early ’80s game, which took place at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., Jordan led the United States in scoring with 20 points en route to a 96-65 blowout win. Notable for being the final American amateur squad to capture an Olympic gold medal, Jordan was flanked on the 1984 team by other future Hall of Famers such as Patrick Ewing and Chris Mullin.

More than three decades later, the sneakers worn by Jordan during the August ’84 victory have found their way to auction. Although the autographed Converse sneakers have seen better days — the shoes have deteriorated and yellowed considerably with age — they’re still a rare piece of sneaker history, and the current bid price is proof.

With just over three days left on the auction as of 3 p.m. ET, the highest bid sits at $144,222. For a chance to own this piece of sneaker history, visit SCP Auctions.
