Michael Jordan-worn boxer shorts head to auction at Leland’s

There’s being a Michael Jordan superfan and then there’s wanting to own a pair of his “personally worn” boxer shorts.

For the sickos — sorry, for the enthusiasts — in the latter category, we can reveal that a pair of the NBA legend’s undies are going up for sale by Leland’s auctioneers.

An auction insider tells us that the shorts were “regularly” worn by Jordan and show signs of “heavy use.” But we’ll be damned if we’re going to ask what that means so if you want to know you’re going to have to find out yourself. Their number is (732) 290-8000. God speed.

The blurb also says that this item is “about as close to greatness as one can get,” which seems fair enough but only if what you mean by “greatness” is MJ’s sweaty Chicago Bulls.

The good news — or the bad news if that’s “your thing” — is that they have a dry cleaning tag in them, so they’ve probably been washed.

The reserve price is $500 which, we’re just going to go ahead and note for no particular reason, is also about the cost of a couple of decent therapy sessions. Spend wisely.

The shorts are part of a sale of Jordan’s belongings that ended up in the hands of his one-time bodyguard, John Michael Wozniak (who was memorably seen beating Jordan in a game of coin-toss in the Bulls doc, “The Last Dance”). Other items in the sale include coats, suits, ties and golf clubs that once belonged to the GOAT.

Although how Wozniak ended up with a pair of Jordan’s heavily used boxer shorts is just one of many questions about this situation we choose not to dwell on.

Wozniak has previously sold items related to Jordan through the same auctioneer.
