The Jordan collection has been referred to as the Mona Lisa of the sneaker collecting and sports memorabilia communities

The Dynasty Collection is being introduced to fans by Sotheby’s. The renowned auction house has acquired six pairs of the Nike Air Jordan shoes that NBA star Michael Jordan wore throughout the 1990s Chicago Bulls’ six championship victories. A 1991 Air Jordan 6, a 1992 Air Jordan 7, a 1993 Air Jordan 8, a 1996 Air Jordan 11, a 1997 Air Jordan 12, and a 1998 Air Jordan 14 are among the items up for sale, according to Robb Report.

“This set represents the most valuable and significant collection of Air Jordan sneakers ever brought to market,” Sotheby’s wrote on Instagram with a photo of the sneaker lineup. “The NBA legend’s unprecedented success as an athlete is well-documented and may never be replicated–6 NBA championships, 6 Finals MVPs, 5 league MVPs, and 2 Olympic Gold Medals are just a few of Jordan’s on-court accomplishments.”


According to Sotheby’s, Nike created the Air Jordan I, the original Air Jordan model, in late 1984. Jordan was given the sneaker particularly to wear during his first season with the Chicago Bulls. In 1985, the shoe was eventually made available to the general public. The Jordan collection has been referred to as the “Mona Lisa of the sneaker collecting and sports memorabilia communities.”

“While they are two distinct communities, they converge here with the Dynasty Collection. They also represent the intersection of Jordan’s championship legacy and his style legacy, both of which have combined to make him a global icon,” Wachter said. “Because of the historical and cultural impact that they represent, as a group, they are among the most important basketball shoes a collector could own.”

The sneakers, according to the Wall Street Journal, were obtained straight from Jordan after the championship matches. From February 27 to March 3, The Dynasty Collection will be on exhibit at the Sotheby’s Dubai site. – Steve Sijenyi
