As everyone knows, I’m a big fan of memorabilia stories and the items in general. Nothing gets the blood pumping like some great sports memorabilia.
At the same time, I’m often stunned by the prices of some stuff I see.

This guy paid nearly $1.5 million for a pair of shoes worn by Jordan during his rookie season. For that kind of money, you could buy a mansion in many parts of America.
Hell, you can get a hell of a boat for that kind of money and still have a chunk left over. Yet, Nick Fiorella dropped it all on a pair of Jordan’s shoes. Must be nice!
