BISMARCK, N.D., (UPI) — A North Dakota eBay seller made $9,995 by selling a gallon of sauce from the McJordan, a Michael Jordan-themed McDonald’s sandwich available only in 1992.
EBay seller mortbank1971, who has an address listed as Bismarck, N.D., sold the gallon of sauce to an undisclosed buyer Monday night for $9,995 with free shipping, the Chicago Tribune reported Tuesday.
“A once in a lifetime chance to own the rarest of rare Michael Jordan and McDonald’s collectible! The only one left on Earth?? This gallon of McJordan BBQ sauce is from 1992 when McDonald’s sold McJordan Burgers as a promotional menu item,” the listing read. “The McJordan is 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.”
The sandwich was also sold in some markets as the “Big 33,” in honor of Jordan’s 1992 Olympic Dream Team teammate Larry Bird.
“It is in new condition and has never been opened,” the listing said of the sauce.
