A jersey worn by Michael Jordan during the 1998 NBA championship has sold at auction for $10.1 million.

Michael Jordan, arguably the greatest basketball player of all time, now has the most valuable sports jersey of all time.

A jersey worn by Jordan during Game 1 of the 1998 NBA Finals sold for an attention-grabbing $10.1 million at Sotheby’s September 15, becoming the most expensive piece of game-worn sports memorabilia ever bought at auction.

Michael Jordan Jersey

Michael Jordan scored 33 points wearing this jersey during game 1 of the 1998 NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz. Jordan and the Bulls beat the Jazz in the best-of-seven series 4-2.

The jersey toppled the previous record for game-worn collectibles — a jersey worn by the late soccer player Diego Maradona during the 1986 World Cup sold for $9.28 million at Sotheby’s in May.

A 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle baseball card, which sold for $12.6 million at Heritage Auctions in late August, still holds the title for the most valuable piece of sports memorabilia sold at auction.
