“No autographs for ball boys after the game if I don’t get my applesauce.”

It’s no “Spectacular move . . . ” but this quote does indeed represent one of the finest NBA Finals moments from Michael Jordan’s storybook career. Mike had just finished fighting off illness in a heroic effort that saw the Chicago Bulls seize control of the 1997 championship series, and he really needed some sustenance. One young man came through for MJ and His Airness was so grateful, he saw to it that the game used ‘Flu Game’ Air Jordan XII would end up in the hands of that conscientious ball boy. Sixteen years later, the pair is being put up for auction, complete with Jordan’s signature with the bidding to begin on Monday, November 18th. They’ll start at $5000, and given how exceptionally rare and historically significant this size 13 pair is, how much do you predict they’ll top out at? Let us know after you’ve looked them over after the jump, then get your account in order and submit a bid with Grey Flannel Auctions.

Damn, I just wish I could get my hands on a pair of retro Flu Games with proper leather in size 13. I have hope for 2014.

@chicityop @hrbomber1113 Yup...I had the Taxis and they were amazing. I think it was 2004 the last time Flu Games dropped with leather. 10 year is a long wait considering we've seen all 4 other OG pairs in the last 4 years.
