Michael Jordan’s 1984 Olympic sneakers set a record at auction, but can’t top Honus Wagner card

Jun 11, 2017

Michael Jordan’s used sneakers had game, but they didn’t stand a chance against Honus Wagner.¬†One of the iconic, exceedingly rare T206 Wagner baseball cards, the most famous card in sports collecting, may have been worse for the wear over the years, but it was the big winner, fetching $609,294 at auction Sunday. The dirty, presumably smelly Converse¬†sneakers Jordan wore during the 1984 Olympic gold-medal game against Spain set a record, too, although it was far less: $190,373, according to SCP auctions.
