Goldin Auctions is pleased to announce that with less than a week to go before the close of the 2020 Spring Premium Auction, they have added a truly one-of-a-kind Michael Jordan signed item. Lot #1830 offers a check which was made payable to “TRUMP INDIANA, INC” for $15,000.00 while Jordan visited a casino owned by Donald Trump in 1998. The auction is open for bidding through May 16 at GoldinAuctions.com.
Jordan’s casino visits, which were prominently featured in the “Last Dance” series with his famous trip to Atlantic City between Games 1 & 2 of the 1993 Eastern Conference Finals against the New York Knicks, are legendary and this check is believed to be the first casino marker ever to be offered for sale. This check is from when Jordan visited Trump’s casino in Gary, Indiana on February 16, 1998, which was sandwiched between two Bulls home games against the Pistons on February 15 and Pacers on February 17, both Chicago victories and has been signed on the front by Jordan.
“The demand for Michael Jordan cards and memorabilia is unprecedented” said Ken Goldin, Founder of Goldin Auctions. “With Jordan being known to be fond of casinos, this signed check is the only known casino marker from him to come up for auction and the added bonus that it was made out to the company owned at that time by President Trump makes this a truly rare and one-of-a-kind piece.”
In the Spring Premium Auction, which is now open for bidding, Goldin Auctions has what is believed to be the largest collection of Michael Jordan memorabilia offered in with over 70 Jordan-related items including a 1996/97 Michael Jordan Game Used Chicago Bulls Road Uniform that has been photo-matched to 4-13-1997, a 1986/87 Fleer #57 Michael Jordan Rookie Card graded a GEM MT 10 by PSA, a 1987 Michael Jordan Game Worn Bulls Shooting Shirt (Sports Investors Authentication), a pair of Jordan 11 Concord Game Used and Signed Sneakers with a Charita-Bulls LOA, and a 2003-04 UD “Exquisite Collection” Emblems of Endorsement #MJ Michael Jordan Signed Game Used Patch Card (#14/15) – BGS MINT 9/BGS 10.
