Mid-Summer Classic Auction 2013
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
This lot represents a rare opportunity to pick up autographed shoes from three giants of the modern NBA - Michael Jordan, George Gervin and Robert Parrish - in one fell swoop, or perhaps we should say fell swoosh. A Size 13 Nike left shoe hails from Micheal Jordan's collegiate heroics at North Carolina, which is saying something, considering he was named ACC Freshman of the Year after he averaged 13.4 points per game and made the game-winning jump shot in the 1982 NCAA Championship Game against Georgetown. Jordan has penned a black Sharpie autograph across the cream color panel above the blue leather Nike Swoosh logo, adding the inscription "To Big Bill, Best Wishes." The shoe remains largely with all elements intact and as-issued, with only the tiniest of cracks on the fabric portion of the tongue. A Nike Air left shoe in similar condition has a black Sharpie George Gervin autograph on the outside above the Swoosh, along with "Ice 44" inscription directly below. The third shoe, an Avia black leather right shoe worn by Parrish, is essentially intact but shows considerable game use that has caused significant chipping to the painted fabric around both sides of the ankle, causing key losses to portions of the autographed section. Comes with a Letter of Authenticity from Bill Ficke.
