Back in the grand year that was 1992, Michael Jordan was the toast of Chicago and in many local area McDonald’s, they had a sandwich named after him called the “McJordan”.
Recently, a gallon of the McJordan barbecue sauce was placed on eBay and just sold for nearly $10,000.
We have more from ESPN Chicago from the seller of the item:
“I’ve got quite a bit of McDonald’s memorabilia,” said Mort Bank, a former McDonald’s owner-operator in North Dakota. “This was on my shelf, and my daughter who helps me with eBay said, ‘I wonder what something like this would be worth?’
“I said, ‘I can’t imagine anyone else saved it.’ It only could have been another owner-operator. We decided to see what we could get. … I said I can remember a chicken nugget someone said looked like Jesus that sold on eBay for what, $6,000? You have to use your imagination to to even think it looks like that. This is an actual product.”
By the way, for those wondering what was on a McJordan, here is that info:
The McJordan was a quarter-pound hamburger with smoked bacon, cheese, McJordan barbecue sauce, onions, mustard and pickles. All of Michael Jordan’s ‘favorite ingredients.’ The burger was sold only in limited markets in the United States.”
