Before the NBA Championships, MVP Awards, and All-Star Game appearances, Michael Jordan achieved the pinnacle of greatness at UNC, when he won the National Title in 1982. If you thought Michael was clutch with the Bulls, his go-ahead jumper with 19 seconds to go in the winding moments of the game gave Dean Smith and the Tar Heels the victory – a moment that wrote Michael’s name in the history books and began a legend that would later sprout into the greatest basketball career of all-time. During that game, Michael Jordan wore the Converse Pro Leather, but as soon as he arrived into the NBA, Michael would connect with Nike in a partnership spanning nearly three decades and twenty-seven signature models, but as a special treat, Jordan and Converse are getting together to commemorate one of Michael’s greatest on-court moments in history.
Jordan and Converse team up again for another game-winner – the Jordan x Converse Commemorative Pack. Each pack is numbered (just thirty Packs are made) and features an autographed North Carolina jersey as well as an autographed pair of the special edition Jordan x Converse Pro Leather sneakers. All of the shoes are Michael’s sneaker size of 13 and the jerseys are all size 40, and only twenty-three of the thirty packs will be up for bidding (seven went to Jordan’s friends and family), with all proceeds going toward the James R. Jordan Foundation. Continue reading for a detailed look at the Jordan x Converse Commemorative Pack and if you’re interested in placing a bid, the auctions are now live on eBay!
