There’s now an auction platform strictly for Michael Jordan memorabilia and sports cards.
Long-time collector, businessman and Jordan fan Ryan Friedman has launched MJAuthentic23 which will be devoted exclusively to Jordan-related items.
The inaugural auction will take place April 9-23 and will feature—of course–23 lots.
“We want people to have fun, enjoy the art of collecting and pursuing their favorite Michael Jordan collectibles,” says Friedman. “Even though each auction will only have 23 lots, there will still be a wide variety of price ranges allowing all types of budgets to participate.”
Items scheduled for the April auction include a selection of Type 1 Jordan photographs, a vintage autographed Jordan Sand-Knit Jersey, a signed personal check, Michael Jordan Senior Flight School Participation Awards, a rare Rare Carlo Beninati UDA “Free Throw” Serigraph and more. The final lineup will take shape later this month. Collectors will be able to get an early preview of items via the MJAUthentic23 Instagram account.
A Chicago native, Friedman grew up during Jordan’s Bulls heyday and has been collecting, buying and selling Jordan items ever since.
“Over the last 23 years, I have had the pleasure of handling some amazing and rare pieces of Michael Jordan memorabilia, including autographs, game worn jerseys, game worn shoes, original photographs and so much more. Now it’s time to showcase some of these items, along with unique consignments from fellow Michael Jordan memorabilia collectors.”
Collectors and buyers can register for the auction now on the company’s website.
Friedman says MJAuthentic23 will also offer appraisals of Jordan memorabilia and advisement services on third-party grading and authentication as well as private sales and consignment opportunities for Jordan-related items.
