A pair of shoes worn and signed by Michael Jordan during his rookie season hit the auction block over the weekend and, unsurprisingly, fetched a very high sum for their owner.

The shoe's actually predate the famed Air Jordan line of sneakers, and were acquired by a Los Angeles Lakers ball boy back in 1984, according to ESPN.

The pair of red and white Air Ship shoes brought in $71,533 at the SCP auctions event. Despite that seemingly astronomical number, the pair still came up over $30,000 short of the $104,765 price tag grabbed by the Air Jordan 12's worn by His Airness in his famed "Flu Game" against the Utah Jazz in the 1997 NBA Finals.
