1990s Tub of McDonald's McJordan Sauce Fetches $10,000
Bidder Nabs Rare Tub of McDonald's Sauce for $10K
If you were lucky enough to chow down at a McDonald's in Chicago in the early 1990s, you may have eaten a McJordan burger.
The burger, named for basketball star Michael Jordan, was topped with a special McJordan sauce.
And, oddly enough, lo these many years later, a rare, unopened tub of the sweet sauce was a hot ticket on eBay, fetching just shy of $10,000, with the highest bidder claiming the goop for $9,995.
It's not exactly sports memorabilia, but it is rare.
Less rare are the ingredients inside the gallon container -- the same as what McDonald's uses in its barbeque sauce today.
The only thing that distinguishes the sauce from being your typical BBQ concoction is the label on the can, which reads "McJordan BBQ Sauce."
How seller "mortbank1971" of Bismarck, N.D. came to own the sauce he or she put up for auction is unknown. As is the identity of the winning bidder.
The listing for the item read: "A once in a lifetime chance to own the rarest of rare Michael Jordan and McDonald's collectible! The only one left on Earth?? This gallon of McJordan BBQ sauce is from 1992 when McDonald's sold McJordan Burgers as a promotional menu item."
The description goes on to explain the McJordan burger, which was a quarter pounder with bacon, cheese, onions, pickles, mustard and McJordan barbeque sauce.
Let's hope the winning bidder just keeps it on display and doesn't crack it open at the next family BBQ.
