Sports memorabilia is a multi-million dollar industry, with tiny pieces of cardboard selling for thousands. Here’s a look at a piece of Michael Jordan collectible history that is definitely worth more than its own weight in gold; this solid sterling silver Air Jordan 1 shoe was given to Michael as a gift from his wife for his 32nd birthday. It was created after Michael’s rookie shoe – the Air Jordan 1 – and just ten pieces exist, belonging to most serious collectors (and a few lucky others). This auction for the Air Jordan 1 Sterling Silver Shoe is extra special because it comes with an autographed ’94 Retro Air Jordan 1 shoe as well! Check out the images below and if you’re interested in purchasing (or curious about the asking price), check out the auction from eaglesflyby on eBay.
