Michael Jordan's diploma, transcript auctioned
Items including Michael Jordan's University of North Carolina diploma and recruiting letters from coach Dean Smith are being auctioned off.
The Charlotte Observer reports (http://bit.ly/1dlX49R ) that the items once hung on the wall of Michael Jordan's 23 restaurant in Chapel Hill. When the eatery closed in 2003, the items were stored in a locker.
Jordan now owns the Charlotte Bobcats.
Goldin Auctions founder Ken Goldin says he has had the documents authenticated. The opening bid on the diploma is $7,500, and the Smith letter starts at $5,000.
Bidding continues through Feb. 7 at www.goldinauctions.com .
