Autographing sneakers might seem like the go-to commendable move for athletes to do today, but way before Kevin Durant or Stephen Curry blessed the sneakers of fans, there was Michael Jordan. Now, up for sale are a pair of original "Bordeaux" Air Jordan VIIs autographed by MJ himself.
Listed on eBay, vhalen1 described meeting Michael Jordan through the Make-a-Wish, a foundation that specializes in granting one wish of young people that suffer from some sort of disease or illness. The listing reads:
"They were signed prior the Bulls/Heat game in December 30, 1992 at the Miami Arena. A game which MJ made 2 NBA Records in attempts/made free throws in a half shooting 20 of 23 and a great blocked shot to Harold Miner! I think he try to do what I asked him, a new scoring career high. Now returning to the shoes. I used the shoes prior being signed. I was able to get them signed by MJ because I was a Make a Wish wish-child at that time, my wish was meet Michael Jordan!"
The seller is also including a video and a picture of Jordan signing the sneakers on his feet. While the sneakers are more than likely not wearable due to old age, at only $725, this is a great chance for a collector to own Jordan's 1992 All-Star sneaker.
