Worn by Mike, owned by Whitney.

Whenever a pair of game-worn Air Jordans goes up for auction the final bidding price is always astronomical, especially when there's some extra appeal like the "Flu Game" 12s.

The latest pair of game-worn Js to hit the auction block most likely won't sell for six figures like the game-worn Flu Games, but since they were once owned by the late Whitney Houston we're sure the bids are going to skyrocket. 

According to Heritage Auctions, the iconic "Black/Metallic Silver" Air Jordan 5s were probably given to Whitney after she sung the National Anthem before Game 3 of the 1990 Eastern Conference Finals. 

MJ dropped 47 points in that game against the Detroit Pistons, though they went on to lose the series in seven games.

The OG game-worn "Black/Metallic Silver" Air Jordan 5s, featuring Jordan's #23 embroidered into the lower ankle, will open up with a starting bid of $10,000- the auction will commence on June 25th. 

Luckily, the "Black/Metallic" 5s are scheduled be retro'd later this year.
