The earliest known game-worn Michael Jordan basketball shoes will be auctioned online by SCP Auctions, with bidding from April 8 through to Apr. 25, according to ESPN.

The Nikes have reportedly been in the shoe closet of former Los Angeles Lakers ball-boy Khalid Ali for the last 30 years.

“I didn’t really talk about them much. People who met me after my teenage years don’t even know I have them,” he said.

The shoes, according to SCP Auctions vice president Dan Imler could fetch more than $50,000. They came from a game played in Los Angeles on Dec. 2, 1984. The Bulls won 113-112 and Jordan scored 20 points.

Another pair of shoes that Jordan wore during the 1984-1985 season went for $31,070 in 2013.
