All proceeds from the MJ-designed 1s will benefit the Charlotte Hornets Foundation.
The Charlotte Hornets have today announced that 75 pairs of Michael Jordan-designed Air Jordan 1s are now available via auction and raffle, with all proceeds benefitting the Charlotte Hornets Foundation.
In total, MJ created 300 pairs of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG, but only 65 will be up for grabs via auction. An additional 10 pairs will be available via raffle.
The 65 auctions will start with opening bids of $200 and have a “Buy Now” price of $20,000. Each auction will be for a specific size in either white or black.
Entries into the raffle can be purchased via hornetsjordanauction.com for $10. The raffle will close at the same time as the auctions, after which 10 winners will be selected. Sizes and colors will not be guaranteed and will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Bidding is open now at hornetsjordanauction.com and will run through 5pm ET on Thursday, May 23.
According to NBA.com, the Charlotte Hornets Foundation is committed to inspiring a philanthropic culture and strengthening the Charlotte region through intentional partnerships, charitable giving and social projects in the areas of education, wellness, hunger and military care.
