MJ Shoes, DiMaggio Bat, McDavid Rookie Card Pace Lelands Auction

Michael Jordan 1992 Dream Team signed, game-worn shoes sold for $190,373, a Joe DiMaggio 1949 Yankees game-used bat fetched $157,333 and a rare Connor McDavid rookie card garnered $135,811 in the Lelands 2020 Spring Classic Auction, which closed June 19.

The spectacular Jordan shoes were worn during the Tournament of Americas qualifying event for the 1992 Barcelona Olympics and are the first MJ photo-matched Dream Team items to ever be offered publicly. The auction featured a treasure trove of Jordan memorabilia including a pair of signed, game-worn shoes from the 1981-82 season at the University of North Carolina ($95,176).

The DiMaggio game-used bat was photo-matched to Sept. 28, 1949 and has been identified with probable use in the 1949 World Series when the Yankees defeated the Brooklyn Dodgers.
