UPDATE (2/10/2014): The auction is now complete and Goldin has disclosed the final sales information. Over 1,100 lots combined for $2.3 million, with a 1955-56 Jackie Robinson game used bat topping the list at $162,267.50. The individual vales for the main Michael Jordan items can be seen below.

Death, taxes, and Michael Jordan. If there is one thing that you can count on in the collecting world, it is likely associated with Michael Jordan. Few things drive the hobby like Michael Jordan cards, autographs and memorabilia. An upcoming lot from Goldin Auctions includes multiple unique items from Michael Jordan, including his UNC diploma, a game used and signed Team USA Basketball uniform, and multiple recruiting letters. Bidding runs through February 7th and high prices are expected.

Most of the featured items came from Jordan's restaurant, 23, in Chapel Hill. The restaurant was closed in 2003 and many of the items that decorated the walls were kept at a public storage. The rare items came to light when the contents of the storage unit were purchased through a public auction.

The top highlights from the auction include:

There are also various other Michael Jordan items featured in the auction, including game-worn gear and multiple signed items. Full information about the items featured in the auction can be found at the website for Goldin Auctions. Also, additional information about the discovery of the items can be seen here.
