On Oct. 26, 1984, Jordan made his first appearance for the Chicago Bulls, and somehow, the tickets remained untouched for decades.

The owners obviously made the right decision since now they’re worth a small fortune.

Auctioneers at Bonhams anticipate the items will go for between $200K and $300K.

One of the tickets carries an inscription that reads, “Michael Jordan’s first game.”

Additionally, the other ticket bears the signature of former NBA player Dallas Comegys, who signed it during the game.

ESPN’s “The Last Dance” documentary in 2020 has triggered an exponential rise in Jordan memorabilia prices. For example, a pair of tickets similar to this pair sold earlier this year for a staggering $468,000.

Apart from that, the basketball legend’s jersey fetched $10.1 million, the priciest piece of sports memorabilia ever sold.

Sotheby’s auctioned the item on Thursday as part of their “INVICTUS” auction of sports artifacts.

According to NPR, the bright red shirt bearing the words “Bulls 23” achieved 20 bids at Sotheby’s.

Jordan donned the jersey in Game 1 of the 1998 NBA Finals. He would lead his team, the Chicago Bulls, to victory in the championship series against the Utah Jazz.

The tickets will be available for bidding beginning Monday and close on Sept. 29.
