These Michael Jordan game worn sneakers were gifted to Cal Ripken by the Bulls superstar in 1992. The circumstances surrounding how these sneakers were passed from one superstar to another was that Cal was in Chicago for a charity event in early December 1992. Michael Jordan, at this time at the height of his fame as the best basketball player of the era, had donned these Nike Air Jordan’s during the December 4, 1992 Friday night game against the Portland Trail Blazers. The game was significant to Jordan because he was working through a foot injury. Despite the pain, Jordan played 38 minutes and scored a game-high 38 points with 13 rebounds and 2 assists. Jordan and the Bulls, on their way to the last of their first “Three-Peat” championships, defeated their previous NBA Finals opponent the Portland Trail Blazers 111-99.

Jordan wore these immaculate white Nike Air Jordan’s that night. The sneakers have an all-white body with black treads, highlighted in Chicago Bulls red. A gold Air Jordan Logo appears on the side of each sneaker and a gold finger pull is sewn on the back. Jordan’s immortal number “23” is imprinted on a black and red triangle on the back of each ankle and a Nike manufacturer’s label is sewn inside each tongue. There is very light game use present and the treads, highlighted with an Air Jordan logo and gold, red and silver designs, are in excellent condition. Most importantly, Michael Jordan has signed the outside heel of each of these gamers in bold, black marker. That these sneakers were worn by Jordan during his third consecutive championship season against a strong Portland team makes them already an outstanding piece of basketball history – that they were given to Jordan’s baseball counterpart, Cal Ripken, Jr., moves these sneakers into the extraordinary column. The sneakers come with a signed LOA from Cal Ripken, Jr. for the game use and autographs. Additionally, there is a LOA from MEARS for the game use and has been graded Authentic.
