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.
If this doesn’t motivate you to be great, I don’t know what will. “Winning has a price, leadership has a price… ‘The one thing about Michael Jordan was he never asked me to do something that he didn’t ****ing do.” pic.twitter.com/sEt4eE9nTz
