Michael Jordan – Ticket Stubs For MJ’s NBA Debut Game Expected To Go For $300K At Auction, Retired Athlete’s Jersey Recently Sold For $10 Million


A pair of tickets from Michael Jordan’s NBA debut game could sell for six figures!

Tickets from Michael Jordan’s Oct. 26, 1984 debut game for the Chicago Bulls are so rare that officials at Bonhams, which is hosting the auction, anticipate they’ll go for between $200K and $300K. According to reports, it is believed to be the first time that a pair of the red and black box office tickets from Jordan’s debut game has ever been sold.

One of the tickets has “Michael Jordan’s first game” written in pen on the back and also includes a signature from former DePaul basketball star Dallas Comegys, who signed the fan’s ticket while attending the game that night.

Auction site Bonhams had this to say about the rare memorabilia item:

“By far the most desirable and rarest of tickets, is the iconic red and black box office ticket which was only available at the venue and features the Chicago Bulls logo and silhouette of Chicago Stadium. It’s these tickets that truly evoke the image of the young Bulls prospect on the verge of superstardom.

“To find a pair of these red and black ticket stubs to this iconic game is exceptionally rare. A full red and black ticket from this game, believed to be the only unused example ever discovered, sold in February 2022 for $468,000.”

Michael Jordan memorabilia has exploded in price and value since ESPN aired its “The Last Dance” documentary in 2020, which focused on Jordan’s career and his years playing for the Chicago Bulls.

As previously reported, Michael Jordan’s real-life jersey from his last NBA Finals game — also known as “The Last Dance” season — went on the auction block earlier this month. The Chicago Bulls superstar was wearing the red jersey when he scored 33 points against the Utah Jazz on June 3, 1998. Despite the Bulls’ loss, they went on to win the series 4-2, scoring Michael Jordan his sixth NBA championship and sixth finals MVP award.

The jersey was initially estimated to sell for more than $3 million, however, it surpassed all expectations and sold for a whopping $10 Million! The jersey went up for auction on Sept. 6, but the gavel officially came down on the sale on Wednesday (Sept. 14) for a staggering $10,091,000.

According to reports, the eight-figure price tag set multiple records – including most ever for a basketball jersey at auction, most ever for any game-worn sports memorabilia, and most ever paid for a Michael Jordan item.
