Another game-worn Michael Jordan jersey rakes in millions

A jersey worn by basketball star Michael Jordan while representing the United States during the 1992 Summer Olympics was sold at auction for $3.03 million on Thursday, May 25.

The auction was run by Goldin, an online collectibles marketplace.

The US basketball team, nicknamed “The Dream Team,” brought together some of the best players of all time, including Jordan, Larry Bird, and Magic Johnson, when NBA players were first allowed to compete at the Olympics. The US easily won the gold medal in Barcelona.

The particular jersey worn by Jordan in the semifinal round against Lithuania was included in an auction featuring signed jerseys from all 12 members of the team.

Another jersey worn by Jordan during the opening game of the 1998 NBA Finals was sold at an auction in September for over $10 million, setting a new record as the most expensive piece of game-worn sports memorabilia in history.
