    1992-93 Michael Jordan Game Worn & Signed Air Jordan VIII Chicago Bulls Sneakers. When Michael Jordan retired suddenly in October 1993, not long after completing a glorious three-season NBA Championship run, and suffering the tragic and mysterious murder of his father, many identified an apparent gambling addiction as the dark side of his own competitive drive. Hanging up his Nikes at the absolute height of his profession, Jordan confounded a basketball world struggling to make sense of the stunning desertion. It would be no hyperbole to consider this glorious and terrible time to be the biggest turning point in the life of the sport's greatest figure.

    Consequently, educated collectors are particularly drawn to relics bearing this special vintage, a season that nearly left the second act of the greatest story in modern basketball unwritten. This well-worn pair of Air Jordan VIII's are consigned with a letter on Bulls letterhead identifying the shoes as "Michael Jordan autographed game-worn sneakers from the 1992-93 championship season." While Jordan would commonly change shoes after every game upon his return from that premature retirement, the offered pair clearly exhibits multiple games of action from the third of Jordan's six NBA Championship seasons. Each shoe is labeled size "13" at interior tongue with "920112 FT2" coding. The right shoe is autographed in 9/10 black sharpie. Please note: due to the aged air pockets in the shoes, the bottoms of each have almost completely deteriorated. A pair, which is a great candidate for restoration. Letter of provenance from Chicago Bulls. COA from UDA (autograph). LOA from Heritage Auctions. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic.
