New York State's Office of General Services is responsible for eBaying government surplus items: Office furniture, filing cabinets, school buses, et cetera. But today they're posting some rather atypical items, according to the Daily News: "188 pairs of highly sought-after sneakers and 14 pieces of sports memorabilia seized by State Police as part of a drug bust on Long Island."
"Collectors can make an offer on an Air Jordan 7/6 Retro "Golden Moments Pack," featuring two pairs of Michael Jordan-inspired basketball shoes that typically sells for over $500. Also up for grabs will be a pair of Nike Jordan Ultimate Gift of Flight, size 10.5, that are still in the original box. The shoes often sell for upwards of $650 online."
For this auction only, the OGS is making an exception to their "pickup only" rule, and they're willing to ship each pair of kicks. They'll begin posting them today to their eBay page, and more info is available here.
