Michael Jordan memorabilia typically sells for thousands or even millions of dollars at auction, but this weekend his 1996 Mercedes-Benz S600 Lorinser is up for sale for just $23.
The award is a tribute to Jordan’s iconic jersey number from his time with the Chicago Bulls which took his image – and that of the NBA – to new heights around the world by winning six NBA titles.
It will go on sale at the National Sports Collectors Convention on Saturday in Chicago and according to live market WhatNot, which is hosting the sale, it has an estimated value of $120,000.
The car was even seen in The Last Dance, during the scene where Jordan walks away from reporters as they ask him about the retirement rumors.
While Jordan has owned supercars like a Porsche and a Ferrari in the past, this Mercedes Benz has become well known to fans due to its understatement compared to some of the other vehicles he’s had in his collection.

The car is blue metallic and inside it has dark gray leather seats with Jordan’s name still on a car phone. His name also appears on the dashboard.
But the low price he can sell for is remarkable, especially considering his 1998 NBA Finals jersey sold for $10.1 million in September of last year.
The WhatNot website says it “gives fans the incredible opportunity to own the 1996 Mercedes-Benz S600 Lorinser formerly owned by basketball legend Michael Jordan for the incredible price of just $23.”
“This car represents the pinnacle of Michael Jordan memorabilia and is a must-have for collectors and fans alike.”
WhatNot’s Instagram page said on Thursday that there were still 48 hours left for any potential buyer to register interest.
Interested parties are invited to enter a drop on the What Not app – entry is free – and a buyer will be randomly selected to make the purchase.
But in the past, selling it has proven harder than many people could have imagined.

In 2020 the car was sold on ebay for $202,000 but a deal was never reached as the buyer was unable to raise the funds.
According to AutoEvolution, Jordan owned the car until 2003, and the Beverley Hills Car Club tried to sell it last year for $135,000.
But for $23, it should be easy enough for a buyer to claim their own piece of Jordan’s storied history in American sports.
