So how much do you really like Michael Jordan? Not as much as this guy, who parked his hover car long enough to buy the most expensive basketball jersey ever! Â This unknown huge MJ fan, boughtÂ Jordanâ€™s 1983 North Carolina Tar Heels, game-used, jersey at an auction held atÂ the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass for a dizzying $114,000 US.
This was the same jersey that Jordan wore as a Freshman when he hit the game winning shot against Georgetown to give the North CarolinaÂ Tar Heels aÂ 63-62 victory and theÂ 1982 NCAA championship. Save for LeBron’s 2003 jersey, available in 2028 now my friends!
After the jump, more Jordan collectibles you can’t afford unless you regularly wear aÂ monocleÂ and never complain about gas prices.Â
