A game-worn jersey belonging to Michael Jordan from his second season at the University of North Carolina sold for a record £1 million pounds on Saturday.
This is the only known shirt photo-matched to the basketball legend’s 1982-83 season with the Tar Heels.
But this one sold for more than three times the previous record for a Jordan jersey.
From the University of North Carolina, Jordan was taken as the third pick in the 1984 NBA draft.
A Jordan jersey from his third season with the Bulls in 1986-87 last year sold for $480,000 (£343,000).
“As the final price tag proves, this jersey has everything any serious collector could possibly want,” said Chris Ivy, director of sports auctions at Heritage.
Jordan won six NBA championships in the 1990s with the Bulls and established himself as one of the world’s most iconic athletes.
Jordan memorabilia, including his rookie cards, continues to smash previous records.
And two Fleer PSA 10 rookie cards sold for $738,000 each, with more cards coming on the market in recent weeks looking to push past those records as well.
