You wanna be like Mike, right?
While rumors of a Lebron James-centered Space Jam sequel continue to populate sites across the blogosphere, some more concrete Space Jam news has surfaced. The uniform that Michael Jordan wore when he triumphantly defeated the “MonStars”, narrowly escaping permanent servitude on Moron Mountain in the 1996 classic film, will be available for auction via Invaluable.com on October 1.
According to the site’s description:
Michael Jordan uniform from Space Jam. (Warner Bros., 1996) Screen worn complete basketball uniform including (1) XL AIS brand mesh, red, white and blue-trimmed sports jersey with “Tunesquad” logo on the front and signature number “23” emblazoned on the back and (1) matching pair of size 38 shorts. Worn in the climactic showdown between Michael Jordan’s “Tunesquad” and the “Monstars”. With signs of wear and minor staining. In production used fine condition.
Opening bids for the collector’s item will start at $10,000 and will go up to around $15,000 according to the site’s estimates — which is actually a bit cheaper than we would’ve predicted. Bid well.
