The celebration of Hip-Hop's 50th birthday continues to gain momentum. The Jordan Brand is celebrating Hip-Hop's 50th with a new Air Jordan celebrating music legend, The Notorious B.I.G. But don't procrastinate on copping them. Only 23 pairs will be available during an online auction.
Per OkayPlayer, Brand Jordan and the Christopher Wallace Memorial Foundation have partnered for a sneaker auction of the Christopher Wallace x Air Jordan 13, which was originally created in 2017 to honor Biggie's 45th birthday. Now, they're available in the Jordan Year ('23) and for Hip-Hop's 50th birthday.
“We are thrilled that the Jordan Brand and the Christopher Wallace Memorial Foundation have entrusted Sotheby’s with these exclusive pairs of sneakers honoring the legacy of The Notorious B.I.G. as part of the Jordan Year 2023 celebration,” Brahm Wachter, head of streetwear and modern collectibles at Sotheby’s, said. “The auction marks the only opportunity for collectors and enthusiasts alike to acquire these special limited-edition sneakers that bring together the legacies of the greatest athlete of all time with the greatest rapper ever.”
As aforementioned, only 23 pairs of the Christopher Wallace x Air Jordan 13 collaboration will be available on an online auction via Sotheby’s, which will run today (Jan. 23) until Feb. 3. Each pair is estimated to sell between $2,300 to $5,200, with proceeds from the auction going towards the Christopher Wallace Memorial Foundation.
