Jordanov dres iz Barcelone prodan na aukciji za 216 tisuća dolara

Dres Michaela Jordana iz Barcelone i Olimpijskih igara iz 1992. godine prodan je za 216 tisuća američkih dolara, potvrdio je Robert Edward – voditelj aukcije.

Zanimljivo, riječ je o drugom najvećem iznosu koji je plaćen za Jordanov dres nakon onoga iz 1984. godine s Olimpijskih igara za koji je izdvojeno 274 tisuće dolara.

Spomenuti dres prvi puta je prodan još u rujnu 1992. godine na gala aukciji za 17.500 tisuća dolara.

The winning bid was the second-highest ever for a Jordan jersey, after the 274,000 U.S. dollars paid for his 1984 Olympic singlet.

Jordan inscribed the white mesh jersey on the right breast with “Best Wishes/Michael Jordan.”

The jersey was first purchased for 17,500 U.S. dollars in September 1992 at a gala charity auction.

The gold medal-winning 1992 U.S. men’s Olympic basketball team, nicknamed “The Dream Team,” included, along with Jordan, Hall of Famers Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Scottie Pippen, Karl Malone, Patrick Ewing, Charles Barkley, Clyde Drexler, John Stockton, David Robinson and Chris Mullin.

“Michael Jordan is arguably the most iconic athlete of all-time, winning six NBA titles and two Olympic Gold medals,” Robert Edward Auctions President Brian Dwyer said in a statement. “Collectors relished a rare opportunity to own Jordan’s jersey from the 1992 Dream Team – the greatest basketball team ever assembled.”
