In the latest episode of One of One, Steiner Auctions Sales Manager Efrain Reyes takes us up close with an Air Jordan that was worn by Michael Jordan when he briefly stepped away from basketball in the 90s.

This Air Jordan 9 Player Exclusive was retrieved from Bill Schmidt, former Vice President of Global Sports Marketing at Gatorade, who worked closely with Jordan during some of his earliest marking campaigns for the sports drink. The cleat was worn by Jordan when he suited up as a member of the Birmingham Barons minor league baseball team in 1994 and is one of many pieces procured by Steiner for premium auction lots.
