Jordan memorabilia has been flying off of the shelves ever since “The Last Dance” aired on ESPN in 2020.

As I’ve said many times, I love sports memorabilia stories, especially when the dollar amounts are so high. It’s just mind-boggling.
I can’t imagine ever dropping $738,000 on a single piece of memorabilia of any athlete. I 100% wouldn’t spend it on a card.
It’s just insane the kind of market we’ve seen for Jordan memorabilia since “The Last Dance” dropped last April.
People have dived all the way in on buying stuff involving the legendary Chicago Bulls guard.

Hopefully, I have enough money at some point where spending $738,000 on a card is just a drop in the bucket.
That’s some serious cash.
Also, if you haven’t seen “The Last Dance” yet, I can’t recommend it enough. It’s without a doubt the best sports documentary ever made, and you can catch the entire thing on Netflix.
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
