jordan-auctions-ebay-700x400

For some of the oldest and most rare Jordan finds you have to turn to a little place called eBay and we’ve picked out 20 must-see auctions! Not only are these options fun to look at and possibly contemplate a purchase, but we give you our opinion as to whether we think the ‘Buy It Now’ price is worth it or not based upon completed listings and what else is out there. From autographed Jordans to Player Exclusives. Take a look and let us know in the comments section below that if you had the money, which would you pick up first?

Air Jordan I Black/Red OG DS

VIEW AUCTION
Buy It Now: $2,900
Worth It? We Say No

The shoe that started it all. Though you can find some “pre-owned” options for considerably less, the combination of being unworn and virtually unaffected by time make these Is an intriguing proposition. This is a shoe that’s nearly 30 years old! You don’t see many like this nowadays.

Air Jordan I "UNC" OG 1985

VIEW AUCTION
Buy It Now: $1,820
Worth It? We Say Yes

We’ve stated this before, but it’s crazy that JB has never retro’ed the OG UNC colorway of the Air Jordan I High. That means that all of your purchase options are going to be nearly three decades old, which is what makes this auction so remarkable. Sneakers of the white/light colored variety typically get yellowed and deteriorate significantly over time. And though these have been worn, and do show a little yellowing, aside from photos from the ’80s, we’ve never seen a pair of these in this condition.

Air Jordan I 1985 Original Autographed

VIEW AUCTION
Buy It Now: $7,232.23
Worth It? We Say Yes

The kicks in this auction are the definition of a collector’s item. Most autographed Is go for between 3-5k, but most are either newer retros or previously worn. These are the Original, 1985 Is, in Deadstock condition. Sure, the signature could be bigger or bolder, but to find an item like this is an absolute rarity.

Air Jordan II "The Way I Am"

VIEW AUCTION
Buy It Now: $2,899.95
Worth It? We Say Yes

Limited to 313 pairs produced, 2008’s Air Jordan II “The Way I Am” were released to celebrate the drop of Eminem’s album of the same name. It’s rare enough to find such an exclusive release, unworn, on the resale market, but we’ve never actually seen the tee that accompanies it. Not to say that the shirt justifies the high ‘Buy It Now’ price, but that’s the cost you pay when looking for exclusivity in today’s Jordan game.

Air Jordan III Dwight Freeney PE

VIEW AUCTION
Buy It Now: $2,899.95
Worth It? We Say No

We featured this specific Air Jordan III PE, belonging to NFL great Dwight Freeney, as part of our Non-Basketball Jordan Player-Exclusive post a few weeks ago. So, it’s crazy that now you could actually buy it (if you had the stacks, that is). Now, the street value of PEs is hard to put a price index on…but it’s usually crazy high, as you can see but one thing we failed to consider in our post was that Freeney, while a member of the Colts, played in a dome…meaning he also had a pair of turf cleats in this colorway! Though the cleats sold a while back, for substantially less, you can actually wear this pair on the street, bumping up their resale value dramatically.

Air Jordan IV "Columbia" 1999

VIEW AUCTION
Buy It Now: $574.99
Worth It? We Say Yes

Another from our list of most-desired retros, the Air Jordan IV “Columbia” is a real gem. Time is tough on all things, but it’s particularly harsh on white and light-colored shoes. Considering the current Jordan market and the DS condition of the pair in this auction, we can’t be mad at the seller for asking what they’re listed at.

Air Jordan IV "Oreo" 1999 DS

VIEW AUCTION
Buy It Now: $699.99
Worth It? We Say Yes

The Air Jordan IV “Oreo” is one of our favorites. Pairing the combo of high-quality leather and a speckled midsole is like, well, pairing chocolate cookies and that cream filling in the Oreo. Though there may be others on eBay for a lower price, most of those are either small sizes, or pre-owned. This size 9.5 is reasonably priced, comparatively.

Air Jordan IX Oregon PE

VIEW AUCTION
Buy It Now: $1,125
Worth It? We Say Yes

Let’s be real, we’re all jealous of University of Oregon players and their Nike connect that nets them ultra-exclusive PEs and this Air Jordan IX being one of our absolute favorites. They’re crazy-limited and very difficult to find in deadstock condition, but this is as close as we’ve seen. And, while it may be ridiculous to pay over $1,000 for a pair of used sneakers, these appear to be in great condition and have a ‘Buy It Now’ price nearly half of what some other auctions are listed for.

Air Jordan V Motorsports

VIEW AUCTION
Buy It Now: $3,399.99
Worth It? We Say Yes

The Motorsport Air Jordan releases are crazy. Usually exclusive to drivers and other members of MJ’s racing team, only one pair has actually made it to retail (2010’s VI). Likely due to the UNC-like colorway, these Vs are typically the most-talked-about of the Motorsport colorways. Limited to just 23 pairs worldwide, their rarity is enough to warrant a place on this list. But, to find an auction more than $500 cheaper than all others, in DS condition is a win…if you’ve got the bread that is.

Air Jordan V Quai 54 Black - Friends & Family

VIEW AUCTION
Buy It Now: $2,800
Worth It? We Say Yes

Each year, Jordan Brand sponsors a few basketball tournaments around the world and, occasionally, they get really dope sneakers released to celebrate said tourneys. Back in 2011, the Paris-based Quai 54 tournament got not one, but two classic Js. The first was a Europe-exclusive V, released in a clean white/radient green colorway. But, the icing on the cake was the more limited “Friends and Family Only” black/radient green colorway. Limited to only 54 pairs worldwide, these are crazy rare. Most auctions for these run around $3,500, but comparatively, these are cheap-ER.

Air Jordan X "City Series" Complete Set

VIEW AUCTION
Buy It Now: $3,999.95
Worth It? We Say Yes

This is another Jordan release that we’ve highlighted recently as a colorway (or, in this case colorways) we’d like to see retro’ed soon. Considering condition, size and comparable auctions, this is a crazy find. With other SINGLE shoes from this pack going for upwards of $1,000, getting all five (including the unofficial Charlotte Hornets/Powder Blue colorway), in DS condition, with all original packaging, and in a common size is a rarity. Plus, the seller is even willing to cut the price a little!

Air Jordan X Pantone Sample

VIEW AUCTION
Buy It Now: $3,500
Worth It? We Say No

Copping samples on the resale market is always a dicey proposition. Not only do you have to consider that the shoe might, at some point, release in the future, but you need to be detailed in your research to make sure that what you’re buying is a legit sample. This Pantone sample is a case of a legit, documented Jordan Brand sample from a reputable eBay seller. If you’ve got the paper for it, this would be a dope addition to any sneaker collection.

Air Jordan XI "Columbia" Game Worn Autographed

VIEW AUCTION
Buy It Now: $13,500
Worth It? We Say Yes

Regardless of the staggering price, this sneaker is a piece of history. Not only is it one of the most desired sneakers in the Jordan canon, it’s also been worn in-game by MJ himself and autographed. As far as the center-piece of a sneaker collection, they don’t come much finer than this, even though they are out of price range for most individuals.

Air Jordan XI "History of Flight"

VIEW AUCTION
Buy It Now: $5,000
Worth It? We Say No

Created for promotional use only in 2010, the History of Flight Jordans were produced in ultra-limited numbers and certainly never released to the public. Each numbered silo was given the HOF white/red treatment and, depending on model, they typically go for around $2,000 on eBay. Fortunately for anyone with enough disposable cash, this seller is negotiable on price and in possession of the most-sought-after silo in the Jordan Brand arsenal.

Air Jordan XI Low "Snakeskin" DS

VIEW AUCTION
Buy It Now: $499
Worth It? We Say Yes

Another from our list of most-desired retros are the super rare XI Low “Snakeskin” in navy. It’s very rare to find these in DS condition. And if you do, being released in 2001, they’re likely to be showing some signs of aging and yellowing. That’s what makes this auction notable. The price may be a bit high, but the condition is what you’re paying for here.

Air Jordan XII Ray Allen PE

VIEW AUCTION
Buy It Now: $2,850
Worth It? We Say Yes

It’s no secret that we’re fans of “Sugar” Ray Allen and his crazy Jordan Player-Exclusive game. One of our favorites of his are the white/green Air Jordan XIIs from his days as a Boston Celtic. These XIIs are some of Ray’s most infamous PEs, so it’s crazy to find a pair in DS condition.

Air Jordan XIII Gerald Wallace PE

VIEW AUCTION
Buy It Now: $3,200
Worth It? We Say No

Another Jordan Brand athlete whose closet we’re envious of is Gerald Wallace. But, this auction provides the chance to cop one of his best PEs, an Air Jordan XIII in a white/orange makeup. This particular colorway is from back in his days as a Charlotte Bobcat. Though PEs, like Samples are tricky to purchase in the resale market, this auction was listed by a seller with a solid history of selling highly-limited kicks.

Air Jordan XIII Jarred Jeffries PE

VIEW AUCTION
Buy It Now: $1,099.99
Worth It? We Say Yes

Yes, being a size 17(!) this a pretty obscure size. But, the colorway of this XIII is absolutely on fire. And, comparing the list price on this auction to other PEs, even the previous Gerald Wallace PE, it starts to be more reasonable. Hey, if you’ve got the stacks, and a big enough foot, why not!

Air Jordan XX8 "Jordan Brand Classic PE"

VIEW AUCTION
Buy It Now: $1,399.99
Worth It? We Say Yes

These XX8 Player-Exclusives are one of two colorways created for 2012’s Jordan Brand Classic. We’re particularly fond of this “East” black/gold colorway. And considering auctions for the red/gold “West” colorway is nearly twice as much, it makes us like this auction even more!

Complete Air Jordan Countdown Pack Collection

VIEW AUCTION
Buy It Now: $10,000
Worth It? We Say Yes

Comparing this to other auctions of the complete countdown package, most are over 10k. And, while it’s hard to call spending $10,000 on anything that hasn’t been worn in-game or autographed by MJ himself worth it, if you’re looking to start a collection, wear a size 10, and have a ton of disposable cash laying around, you could do a lot worse than this. Also, can we be friends?
