You don't have to be a Chicagoan to remember the 1998 Chicago Bulls season when Michael Jordan led the Bulls to their sixth championship in a span of just eight years. While the Bulls defeated the Utah Jazz in six games, it is the shoes Jordan wore in game two that are about to be a record-breaking pair.
Sotheby's has the black and red Air Jordan 13s, signed by the legend himself. The pair of Jordans feature large, silver signatures on each toe-box and are said to be in perfect condition, according to Sotheby's. They added the fact that this pair of sneakers is further unique in that it is the only complete pair that Jordan wore in an NBA Finals game and that have been authenticated by The MeiGray Group, the official authenticator of the NBA.
On Sotheby's website, the iconic pair of sneakers is listed as follows:
