In August of 1985, Michael Jordan iconically shattered the backboard during a Nike-sponsored exhibition game in Trieste, Italy. These shoes are the exact pair he wore during that legendary moment — in fact, the left shoe still has a piece of glass embedded in its sole. Authenticated both through photo matching and traceable prior ownership history, these game-worn sneakers have since become the most expensive shoes to ever sell on the public market. 


We are excited by the market trajectory of these sneakers as game worn Jordan memorabilia continues to break pricing records. Just this year, two MJ game-worn sneakers broke all-time high pricing records at $560,00 and $615,000 (Otis ultimately acquired this pair for this drop)— We believe the market for game worn sneakers will only continue to grow and continue to break records.

Record-Shattering Sneakers
The “Shattered Backboard” Jordan is a unique, one-out-of-one grail sneaker. It is an artifact from a top 5 Jordan moment — the shattering of the backboard. This exact sneaker sold for a record breaking $615,000 at a Christie's auction earlier this year.
Catalysts for Game-Worn Jordan’s
Nostalgia for the Jordan era will always remain prominent and continues to demonstrate positive exponential growth since 2013. More than a decade after his retirement, MJ’s game worn memorabilia continues to break pricing records, two of which in 2020 for his game-worn sneakers at $560k and $615k. We believe the market for game worn sneakers will only continue to grow and continue to break records given MJs sustained relevance and adoration.
The Full Package
Among Michael Jordan’s top career moments (The Shot, The Last Shot, The Flu Game, etc.), the “Shattered Backboard” is the most extensively photo-matched item, with regards to the shoe itself as well as its ownership (including images of the post-game handover between Jordan and Bertolotti, who owned the shoes). This is a key determining factor in assessing the value of any sports memorabilia asset of this caliber— placing the “Shattered Backboard” pair in a league of its own.
Jordan Memorabilia is Hot
The recent release of Michael Jordan’s documentary The Last Dance resparked further nostalgia for original Air Jordan 1s across the board. As a result, Jordan Brand grew 16% in the 2020 fiscal year and Air Jordan sales are up 38% (by volume) in 2020.
Sports Memorabilia Market on the Rise
The category has been on the rise for a few years, but has gained significant momentum in 2020. New sellers such as established auction houses (Sotheby’s and Christie’s) began building a presence in the category, introducing it to their customers and creating further public data points around pricing.
