It's been 30-some-odd hours without a Michael Jordan post on Ball Don't Lie, and that's too long to wait. And since Phenomenal Swag could be about a different Jordan artifact every day for the next nine years, it's my duty to fulfill our quota. Ergo, Michael Jordan's baseball cleats.
Worn during his stint with the Birmingham Baron's, Jordan's spikes are modeled on the Air Jordan IX, a surprisingly still relevant design from the 1994-95 NBA season (Jordan's first in retirement).
It's kind of hard to tell anything about the shoes considering their being sold through Yahoo!'s Japanese auction site, but with the power of Internet translations, I've deduced that the price summary is 980,000 yen. I can't exactly tell you what a price summary is, but if you have that many yen, you're basically a millionaire and don't even need to worry about that.
These Jordan cleats are perfect for a collector's item, wearing them during a co-ed softball league, or as a reason for your wife to divorce you. Good luck bidding!
