Michael Jordan sets a record… again


  • A pair of game-worn rookie Michael Jordan sneakers sold for $1.47 million at ​​Sotheby's, the most ever paid for game-worn footwear.


  • The pair of Nike Air Ships were worn during Jordan’s fifth NBA game against the Denver Nuggets. 


  • Fun fact: The previous record for game-worn sneakers was also a pair worn by Michael Jordans -- a pair of Air Jordan 1s that sold at a Christie’s auction in August 2020 for $615,000, which (btw) you can invest in on Otis.


Triceratops Skeleton: The ultimate living room flex?


  • Known as “Big John,” the world’s biggest triceratops was sold to a private collector at the Paris-based Drouot auction house for $7.7 million. 


  • The skeleton is estimated to be about 66 million years old and was found in South Dakota in 2014. It holds a Guinness World Record for being the largest documented skeleton of the three-horned dinosaur. 


  • Fun fact: A T. Rex fossil sold for $32 million at Christie’s in October 2020, as fossil and dinosaur collecting has risen in popularity over the last decade. 


This Tom Brady fan may have lost out on $500,000


  • A fan was handed the ball that Tom Brady used on Sunday to throw his 600th career touchdown, the first time in NFL history a quarterback has ever reached this milestone. 


  • Byron Kennedy, a medical professional, was quickly asked to give the ball back, which he did. While he received team gear and season tickets in exchange, it’s not nearly as much as the historic ball is worth, according to experts.


  • Fun fact: The football used in the legendary 1958  Baltimore Colts vs the New York Giants Championship game was auctioned for $62,140 in 2016, the highest ever for a game-played football.  


Prosecuted for catching ‘em all


  • Prosecutors say a Georgia man bought a Pokémon card worth $57,789 using money he received through the Small Business Administration’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program for business owners hit by the Covid-19 pandemic. 


  • The SBA deposited $85,000 into the man’s bank account in August 2020 and around January 8 of this year, court filings allege that he bought the card -- though they failed to provide details on which Pocket Monster it was (maybe he got a good deal on a Charizard?).



🔥 From the Otis Collection

  • This week in the Otis Discord, we’re talking about: Buyout offers, Fidenzas, and more — join the conversation.


  • Otis received a buyout offer of ‍$66,861 for our 1985 Air Jordan 1s, which shareholders voted 61.6% to 38.4% to reject. The offer would have netted shareholders $67.01/ share, a return of 103.1% against the drop value of $33.00/ share. Trading will resume today (10/29) at market open. 



  • Kendall Jenner is celebrating the spooky season with a pair of rare Nike Dunk Lows that were designed as a tribute to Freddy Kreuger’s “A Nightmare on Elm Street.” The same “Freddy SBs” are currently trading on Otis.


  • A 1984 Optimus Prime Transformer (AFA 85) sold for a record $16,684.80 at LGC Auctions on Sunday. The same toy (in the same grade) is currently trading on Otis at a market cap of $12,190.00 as of 10/28/21.
