Jordan’s underwear recently sold for $3,341 at a Leland’s auction. The item was from the John Michael Wozniak collection. Wozniak was the security guard who was playing a game of quarters with Jordan in "The Last Dance" and went viral on social media. "Saturday Night Live" also did a skit about Wozniak.

"Unusual item shows definite use as this pair of underwear/compression shorts was worn by Michael Jordan with some loose threads evident at the seams. Originating from a family member of MJ's ‘Last Dance’ security guard John Michael Wozniak, it even has a dry cleaning tag inside with the last name ‘Wozniak’ as well as a tag that says Michael Jordan, with the iconic last name on the waistband," a description on the Leland’s auction website read.
