Heritage Auctions in Dallas is offering the card from 1986 in an online auction where it’s expected to sell after midnight Thursday. The consigner wishes to remain anonymous.
Michael Jordan signed a $33 million contract in 1997-’98, the largest in NBA history.
The coin, which is dated 1804 and still in mint condition, was actually made in 1834 or 1835, said Greg Rohan, president of Heritage Auctions of Dallas, which conducted the auction.
How much is a penny worth? Usually exactly one cent, and not enough to buy anything –unless it’s one that’s up for auction Thursday night in the Chicago area.
