Last night was the official start to the Nike Mag 2011 Limited Edition auctions on eBay, and in just a few short hours, each of the 150 pairs released for bidding quickly rose up to tens of thousands of dollars. That much was understood by Michael J. Fox, who made the televised debut of the Nike Mag 2011. Michael’s exact words:
“It’s kinda cool because it brings together three populations of people with major joneses; the sneakerheads, who love sneakers, the Back To The Future guys, who, believe me, are out of their minds – and in a good way, thank God for them, and also the people in the Parkinson’s community that have an interest in research.”
Another great piece of information that Michael disclosed was that the all of the auctions proceeds would be matched up to $50 million by Google, essentially doubling the projected millions that would be amassed by the Nike Mag 2011 auctions.
