Michael Jordan basketball card breaks record at auction originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
Michael Jordan broke tons of records on the court over the course of his 13 years with the Bulls (and two with the Wizards). He’s got the most points in a playoff game, most scoring titles in NBA history, and most Finals MVPs, just to name a few. But now, a basketball card is setting a new record for Jordan.
Bidding for the Jordan card closes on May 22, so there’s still time for the price to climb even higher.
Last year, a pair of MJ’s game-worn Air Jordans set a record for most expensive gym shoes ever sold at auction when they went for $615,000. The highest price ever paid for a basketball card was $5.2 million for a LeBron James rookie card.
