The collection is currently in the midst of a world tour and is currently on display at Sotheby’s Dubai. The next stop will be in Hong Kong from April 1-April 6 and will then be on display in Singapore from May -May 6. Once the tour wraps up there will be a private auction hosted by Sotheby’s.
Sotheby’s seems to have market cornered on game-worn Air Jordans as they also have Jordan 13s he wore in Game 2 of the 1998 Finals against the Jazz. All pairs up for auction have been independently verified authentic and hand signed by MJ himself.
The “Dynasty Collection '' isn't just a piece of memorabilia, it's a piece of Americana that holds as much cultural significance as a collection of works from Andy Warhol or Edgar Allen Poe. The collection is expected to draw bids upwards of $100 million, if that fits your budget visit Sotheby’s for more information.
