Sotheby’s To Auction Off Game-Worn Nike Air Ships
Sotheby is well known for auctioning iconic sneakers, most of which are player-worn, samples or one-of-one pieces. A few such pairs include the Air Jordan 11 sample made for Michael himself for the filming of Space Jam. Speaking of Jordan grails, Sotheby is all set to auction the game-worn pair of Nike Air Ships and a player sample of the Air Jordan 1 “Chicago” later this month.
As per Sotheby’s, the Nike Air Ships are from Jordan’s 5th NBA game of his rookie season and are the earliest regular-season pair to be auctioned off. The Air Ships were gifted to the Denver Nuggets ball boy after the game and were signed by Michael himself. The Air Ships are reckoned to be sold for $1-1.5 million, making it one of the most valuable kicks ever. Also, a deadstock pair of Air Jordan 1 “Chicago” player sample of Michael Jordan is also going to auction off, for an estimated price of $50,000-$70,000.
The sneakers will be auctioned off at the ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas for Sotheby’s Icons of Excellence & Haute Luxury event on October 24th. The exhibition will be open to the public from October 21st-24th and the live auction will begin at 11 AM PT where bidders can participate in person or online via Sothebys.com.
