A Trump Casino employee was working there at the time and obtained the marker from Jordan.
The check was printed at the casino and signed by Jordan who would then be given $15,000 in chips. If he lost that money, the marker would be submitted as a check and cashed by the casino. If Jordan won, then he would “buy back” the marker and it would be marked paid and then shredded.
Bidding was at $6,000 as of Monday.
Another late Jordan addition to the auction is the only game-worn and photo matched Michael Jordan uniform from the Chicago Bulls’ championship season of 1996-97 ever to be offered.
Including both Jordan’s alternate black pinstriped jersey and shorts, it’s expected to sell for more than $250,000.
The uniform was matched to an April 13 road game against the Detroit Pistons—one of just 13 losses suffered by the Bulls that season. The jersey comes with a letter of authenticity from the Bulls.
As of Sunday afternoon, the high bid was $100,000.
The Bulls won their second consecutive NBA championship in 1997, their fifth title in seven years. Jordan played all 82 regular season games where he averaged 29.6 points per game
