In case you were ever wondering just how popular of an athlete Michael Jordan is in America, this should tell you everything you need to know.

A baseball signed by him as a young kid is going to sell for several thousand dollars. That’s just simply mind-boggling.

Now, it’s not going to sell for as much as some of his jerseys have and will continue to sell for down the road, but it’s still a ton of money.

Imagine dropping several grand on a baseball signed by a kid. It’s hard to comprehend, but here we are.

Jordan’s popularity also seems to be higher than ever thanks to “The Last Dance” airing on ESPN. If you haven’t already seen it, I suggest watching it ASAP.

It’s the greatest sports documentary ever made by a country mile.

Let us know in the comments if you’d ever buy a ball signed by a kid!
