Jordan signed the shoes and handed them off to the ball boy after the game and he has now decided to part with the Converse One-Stars through Gray Flannel Auctions.

Jordan signed his now legendary deal with Nike shortly after those Olympics, before he began playing in the NBA, so he and the rest of the team wore Converse as the U.S. defeated the Spanish team to take home the gold medal.
