The Best Of The Bay - Top 12 Sneakers On Ebay
From OG mid-90s basketball sneakers to entire collections of Dunks, Jordans and Flyknits, we spy the signed, the stained and the strange on offer at the world's greatest garage sale! Ever wondered how much a pair of signed Jordan golf spikes would go for? Find out as we dig the depths to discover the week's best eBay listings!
,NIKE ZOOM KOBE 4 (SIGNED)
Conventional wisdom is that signed memorabilia appreciates in value when somebody dies. After seeing what Durant & Westbrook did to Kobe in Game One, these could be a wise investment before the end of the Lakers-Thunder series.
REEBOK SHAQ ATTAQ (SIGNED)
With all the hoopla around the return of the Shaqnosis (read about it in Sneaker Freaker Issue 24), now is the time to stock up on the big man's shoes. These signed sneakers are a size 20 (!) and were game-issued but not worn.
NIKE AIR ZOOM GENERATION (SIGNED)
Another from the same seller as the Shaqs, a pair of 'First Game' Air Zoom Generations (aka LeBron 1s), signed and certified by LeBron James. Will the King get a ring this year?
NIKE AIR JORDAN 10 (GAME WORN)
One of the highlights of this week's eBay search, these 10s were worn by Jordan during his comeback season, and feature the '45' worn briefly by the GOAT during that period. The sneakers also come with a ticket stub from the April 7, 1995 game at which Jordan wore them.
SIGNED CP3 JORDAN 23s
Currently leading the Clippers into a second-round duel with the veteran Spurs, Chris Paul's Hornets days are remembered with these player exclusive Jordan 23s, signed by CP3!
MICHAEL JORDAN GOLF SPIKES
What do you get for the man who has everything? How about a pair of custom Nike golf spikes made for and signed by Michael Jordan? The seller claims they were worn by Jordan for a round of 18 holes, but offers no proof and wants five thousand dollars for them. You only live once, right?
JAY-Z 40/40 AF1
Amidst the basketball memorabilia is this pair of super-rare Air Force 1s. Created to commemorate the opening of Jay-Z's 40/40 Club, these Yankees-colours Uptowns were super limited – only 120 were ever made!
NIKE AIR NDESTRUKT
The return of the Rodmans has been well-received, but the purists are still pining for the OG sole! This original pair from 1996 flips a white/UNC Blue colourway, side-lacing and nothing even close to 360-degree air cushioning.
FLYKNIT HTM COLLECTION
The Flyknit HTM collection caused chaos with the combination of Hiroshi Fujiwara, Tinker Hatfield and Mark Parker riding high again. This collection includes two pairs of HTM Trainers and one pair of the super-rare HTM Racers!
For anyone looking to start a sneaker collection without the hassle of queues, multiple resellers and boutique-scouring, this collection of 17 Dunks could be yours for under $4000!
OG REEBOK QUESTIONS
The Reebok Questions return May 25, but for anyone looking to flex some OG muscle, this pair of Philadelphia-exclusive (is that why Kobe's in the pic?) 1996 Red-Toes await your bid!
If you've somehow acquired $6,500 and have no plans for the money, the Countdown Pack is a steal! Who wouldn't want a pair of every Jordan sneaker from 1-23, often in the most sought-after colourways?
