What would you pay for the original Air Jordan 12 “Flu Game” pair? No no the retail version-but the actual shoes that Michael Jordan wore in that infamous game. It turns out the magic number is $104,765. That’s how much the shoes went for over at Grey Flannel Auctions after starting out with a hefty minimum bid of $5,000. Sure there will no doubt be many more retros of this Jordan 12 down the years, but none of those can touch this game-worn, autographed piece of history. See the condition that the sneakers are in below and let us know if you think there’s any other MJ memorabilia out there that could possibly fetch this much.

@Sizzlin_XZa i know i saw that shit last night, insane
the buyer paid for a piece of basketball history not just a pair of shoes. When MJ passes away these will just go up in value.
No doubt it's an ICONIC shoe that marks one of the greatest feats in basketball but geez $104,765?? I mean damn . . .
@sneakernews that's crazy
first i thought they sold for $104 and i was surprised then i saw the other 3 figures and then i wasn't.
