Michael Jordan’s smoked cigar up for auction

CHICAGO — Auction items that feature “His Airness” never run out of money they can make, which has been proven time and time again over the past few years.

That was proven this week when an unused ticket to Michael Jordan’s first game fetched $468,000 at auction.

Over time, however, the Bulls legend and Basketball Hall of Famer’s articles also become a bit more creative. The shoes Jordan wore during the game he broke his foot in 1985 at Oakland sold for $422,000 earlier this winter.

Now, Lelands presents a very unique article that involves one of the six-time NBA champion’s greatest pastimes outside of the game: cigars.

As part of their Winter Classic 2022, Lelands is auctioning off a Jordan smoked cigar, with photographic evidence that he smoked that particular piece of tobacco. On several occasions, he has spoken of his love of cigars while smoking a number of them during his playing career during various major Bulls wins.

Fans can bid on the used cigar until March 12 at 9 p.m. Central Standard Time.

This item is being auctioned off after Jordan was honored during NBA All-Star Weekend as a member of the NBA’s 75th Anniversary Team. He showed up at Sunday’s halftime ceremony in Cleveland with former Bulls teammate Dennis Rodman.

One of the most shared images of the entire weekend was Jordan’s hug with LeBron James during the ceremony as the couple had a chat after the ceremony was over.
