This is the jersey Jordan wore at the press conference announcing his signing at the Chicago Bulls in 1984.
Another highlight of the sale of over 500 sports memorabilia was the auctioning of a basketball jersey worn by former US President Barack Obama as a student. The white and blue jersey for the 1979 season of the Punahou High School team in Hawaii reached the sum of 192,000 dollars (163,000 euros). This would be a world record when it comes to auctioning a high school jersey.
