Ball Boy Consigns Michael Jordan’s 1997 “Flu Game” Sneakers To Grey Flannel Auctions Other major league sports treasures to be auctioned include game-used jerseys worn by Lebron James, George Gervin, Larry Csonka, Mariano Rivera, Rocky Colavito and Mario Lemieux along with a baseball
Tigers outfielder Rocky Colavito and Pittsburgh Penguins center Mario Lemieux. Also included in the sale is a baseball autographed by members of the world champion 1928 Yankees, Elgin Baylor's 1974 NBA All-Star Game trophy, the boxing gloves Sugar Ray Leonard wore in his 1984 win over Kevin Howard, and a 1932 NY Yankees World Championship player’s ring. Russek figures the Flu Game shoes will wind up at or near the top of that heap. "We do not assign estimates, but I expect the Jordan sneakers to be one of the highest-priced items in the sale, and other consignors will benefit from being in their good company."
