An Air Jordan IX "Black/Mesa Orange" look-see sample has made its way to eBay with a price tag in line with its rarity. 

Offered by long time collector and shop owner, thecoolshoeshine, comes this pretty exclusive Air Jordan IX whose tag markings indicate the shoe was originally scheduled for a 2012 Holiday release. Could this colorway have been just delayed or scrapped altogether? The latter would make this shoe a true collectible and much more valuable in the eyes of collectors. 

The official colorway is listed as "Black/Mesa Orange-Dark Grey" and for those interested, carry a current price tag of $5,177.99. There is an option to "make an offer" so you might save yourself a few bucks if you go that route. Click here to check out the auction.
