Michael Jordan’s ‘Last Dance’ jersey sells for a record $10.1 million

A Michael Jordan jersey just set multiple sports memorabilia records.

Jordan’s jersey from Game 1 of the 1998 NBA Finals was auctioned off at Sotheby’s for $10.1 million, the company announced on Thursday.

The jersey, which was not even signed, first went up for auction on September 6. The original estimate for the jersey’s worth was only $3-5 million.

The “Last Dance” jersey went for more than any other Jordan item, game-worn piece of sports memorabilia, or basketball jersey.

A pair of game-worn Jordan sneakers, for example, went for less than $2 million at a Sotheby’s auction last year.

The identity of the wealthy fan who bought the jersey was not disclosed.
