Space Jam: Michael Jordan uniform heading to auction block
Here’s one way you can be like Mike — if you have $10,000 to spare.
The uniform Michael Jordan wore in the hit 1996 cartoons-and-basketball film Space Jam is going up for auction this fall.
Profiles in History is auctioning off the jersey with “TuneSquad” emblazoned on the front and Jordan’s signature No. 23 on the back, along with a matching pair of size-38 shorts.
The listing says Jordan wore the uniform during the showdown between the TuneSquad and the alien Monstars to win the Looney Tunes’ freedom — and notes the item is in “fine condition” but has “signs of wear and minor staining.”
Bidding on the uniform, which is being done via Invaluable, is expected to reach between $10,000-$15,000.
Space Jam opened in 1996 and went on to earn $230 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing basketball movie of all time. Rumors have swirled for years of a potential sequel — possibly with LeBron James involved.
You can head here to bid on the uniform when the auction opens on Oct. 1.
