The number 9 jersey sported by Michael Jordan during his remarkable stint on the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Fantasy Team officially sold for an astonishing $3,030,000.
Jordan wore this jersey on August 6, 1992, when the United States team battled against Lithuania. In that iconic game, Jordan achieved an impressive 21 points, 4 assists, and 3 rebounds. The jersey, a Champion brand size 46, bears the basketball legend’s black autograph on the upper left chest.
The “Dream Team Collection” auction, a collaborative effort between Goldin Auctions and 1992 Dream Team member Karl Malone, facilitated this historic sale. Besides Jordan’s jersey, the auction also features items from other Dream Team members, including Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, John Stockton, Scottie Pippen, David Robinson, and Karl Malone himself.
Fans and collectors intrigued by the memorabilia of these iconic athletes should keep a close eye on this auction. Not only does it offer a chance to own a piece of basketball history, but it also provides a unique glimpse into the stories and the careers of these legendary sportsmen.
