For the Michael Jordan fans who can't get close enough to the NBA legend, Lelands Auctions is providing a new way to experience His Airness, selling off his game-worn underwear.

An auction insider told Oli Coleman of Page Six that the briefs were worn "regularly."

Michael Jordan's old underwear, with signs of 'definite use,' up for auction. 😶 <a href="https://t.co/i8IaSgRF7o">https://t.co/i8IaSgRF7o</a> <a href="https://t.co/zmzW1BHtg1">pic.twitter.com/zmzW1BHtg1</a>

Here's how Lelands describes it:

"Unusual item shows definite use as this pair of underwear/compression shorts was worn by Michael Jordan with some loose threads evident at the seams. Originating from a family member of MJ's "Last Dance" security guard John Michael Wozniak, it even has a dry cleaning tag inside with the last name "Wozniak" as well as a tag that says Michael Jordan, with the iconic last name on the waistband. About as close to greatness as one can get, this is just one of the many items in this auction that were given to Wozniak from MJ himself including suits, ties, belts, and jackets."

Bidding starts at $500 and will run through September 25. As of Thursday evening, the highest bid was $976 with eight bids submitted.

The briefs may not fetch as much as some of Jordan's iconic shoes or trading cards, but there may not be a stranger piece of MJ's memorabilia for sale anytime soon.
