Continuing the auctions of Michael Jordan‘s game-worn shoes, sports memorabilia auctioneer Lelands recently put up the basketball legend’s iconic Converse Fastbreaks up for bid.

Worn by Jordan during the University of North Carolina’s 1982 NCAA Championship season, the Tar Heel colored shoes are currently the earliest of Jordan’s shoes to ever be up for auction. Although the Converse Fastbreaks up for auction were not worn during the Championship game against Georgetown, they do come signed by MJ with “1982 NCAA Championship” written under.

Currently, the shoe has only received a single $15,000 USD, but the price is expected to shoot up before the end of the auction in 23 days. Most recently a pair of rare modified Air Jordan 1s worn by Michael Jordan after a foot injury sold for a staggering $55,000 USD.

Take a closer look at the valuable pair of shoes above and bid on the piece of history now on Lelands.com.
