Michael Jordan's jersey from the opening game of the 1998 NBA Finals sold for over $10 million at an auction on Thursday text

Jordan's jersey was expected to fetch $3 to $5 million at Sotheby's "INVICTUS" auction

Sotheby's said Jordan's Chicago Bulls jersey attracted a total of 20 bids

The pullover overwhelmed a past record of $9.28m, paid for a shirt worn by football star Diego Maradona at the 1986 World Cup.

Jordan is considered by a lot of people to be the best player throughout the entire existence of b-ball. He burned through a large portion of his vocation with the Chicago Bull

Jordan put the Bulls up 87-86 with just 5.2 seconds

Jordan had unexpectedly resigned from ball in October 1993, following the homicide of his dad in North Carolina.

Jordan, who is now aged 59, hung up his boots for the final time in 2003

 

The star had won seven scoring titles and led the Chicago Bulls to three straight championships
