A man who used to own McDonald’s restaurants in North Dakota is about $10,000 richer after selling a 20-year-old container of McJordan barbecue sauce to a buyer in Chicago.
The sauce was used on McJordan Burgers, named for basketball icon Michael Jordan. The promotional item was sold in limited markets for a short time in the 1990s, when Jordan led the Chicago Bulls to six NBA championships.
Mort Bank, of Bismarck, saved the gallon jug of sauce after selling his McDonald’s restaurants in Bismarck-Mandan and Minot in 1996.
“It was in my basement and I would look at it occasionally,” he told The Bismarck Tribune. “I thought it would be worth something someday.”
Bank advertised the sauce on eBay, saying: “A once in a lifetime chance to own the rarest of rare Michael Jordan and McDonald’s collectible!” It sold for $9,995 to a buyer from Chicago whom Bank has not identified.
Are people really gettin gwap like that out in Chi-town? Or maybe he’s thinking in 20 MORE years it’ll be worth $20,000?
