    1985-86 Michael Jordan Game Worn & Vintage Signed Sneakers. Whether as a basketball player or a marketing icon, there's little question that Michael Jordan should be included high on the short list of the greatest of all time. And no partnership between athlete and corporation has been more successful than the marriage of Jordan and Nike, who fed off one another to create a culture of consumerism unprecedented in the sporting goods universe. In that regard, few modern pieces of sports equipment could be considered more historically relevant than the pair of sneakers presented here, the Original Nike Air Jordans, worn on the court by the man who would come to rule the basketball world. Sneaker-philes will assure you that this style is the hottest of commodities in the complete absence of any direct ownership by the man who gave them their name. But Original Air Jordans from the feet of Jordan? It doesn't get any better than that!

    This pair of size thirteen shoes holds the interior inventory code of "850810TH," assuring 1985 vintage. Jordan played only eighteen games this season due to an ankle injury, making this game used pair all the more rare. Wear is light but apparent, proper for an athlete who even at this early stage would wear sneakers for only a single game. Each heel bears the early and far more desirable version of Jordan's autograph, applied with 8/10 black ink to the outside heel. The style, the use and the autographs together make this offering arguably the most desirable Jordan shoes on the face of the earth. LOA from Lou Lampson. LOA from PSA/DNA (autographs).
