Michael Jordan is still breaking records.
An auction of the jersey Jordan wore in Game 1 of the 1998 Finals — the season from “The Last Dance” documentary — went up for auction and drew a record $10.1 million. That set a few records.

The record for a game-worn piece of memorabilia had been $9.3 million for Diego Maradona’s “hand of god” jersey from the 1986 World Cup.
Jordan’s Bulls beat the Jazz in six games in 1998, giving the team its second three-peat with him and six total titles. It’s unquestionably a legendary piece of sports memorabilia.
It’s also unquestionably a lot of money for any piece of sports memorabilia.
