Michael Jordan fans, along with the fans of the basketball sport can be called close to perfectionists when it comes to acquiring any sort of garment that is worn by the iconic 23rd Chicago Bulls player during his career. If a few months ago, 2.2 million dollars were paid for the pair of black and red air jordans that Michael Jordan wore in the second half of the second game of the 1998 NBA Finals, which is also called the 'Last Dance,' now it had reached 1.5 million for the jacket he wore when he stood on the podium at the Barcelona 92 Games after the 'Dream Team' won the gold medal. The leading firm of auctioneers, Sotheby, conducted this auction of this garment which started in May. It was estimated that it could sell for 1 million dollars, but it finally exceeded this figure. Credits: NBC Sports Brian McIntyre in this regard Michael Jordan's jacket Brian McIntyre, former NBA public relations executive for more than three decades, has been the owner of this jacket. He said that he really enjoyed this thing and it was the right time to auction Michael Jordan's jacket; it was easier to do this than to leave the garment on his kids, McIntyre added, before beginning the auction. The history behind this jacket Michael Jordan signed an exclusive contract with Nike in 1984; however, he didn't wear this jacket as it was made by Reebok. The U.S. Olympic Committee let him know that he must wear it to collect the gold medal. Michael Jordan then agreed,, but he stepped onto the podium to receive the medal with a US flag over his shoulder that helped him to hide the Reebok logo. When Jordan stepped off the podium, he took off his jacket and threw it away. He then gave it to McIntyre. Two years later, McIntyre wanted to return it, but Jordan dismissed the idea. He did sign it: "To Brian, thanks for everything, Michael Jordan." Now, 29 years later, he has sold it for 1,512,000 dollars (1,384,258 euros). Read More: How tall is Wembanyama?
