A number of gifts that Michael Jordan gave to his personal security guard — the perm-sporting ex-cop who makes scene-stealing cameos in the MJ documentary “The Last Dance” — are going up for auction, Page Six has learned.
The items include a Rolex that Jordan gave to John Michael Wozniak for Christmas in 1993. Wozniak memorably beats Jordan in a coin-toss bet in a scene in the ESPN docuseries, which shows how Wozniak and other security-team members at the Bulls’ Chicago Stadium hung with Jordan when his fame became so great that it was hard for him to spend time in public.
The watch — which has a starting bid of $1,500 at auction house Lelands — is inscribed “To John M, From MJ, 12-25-93.” Also in the auction are a diamond-studded ring that Jordan gave to Wozniak and others in his inner circle in 1998 to celebrate his sixth NBA championship, and a Wizards jersey that Jordan wore in 2002 during his two-season stint with the team. The bidding on the jersey is already up to $6,000, with a month still to go on the block.
Wozniak died in January, three months before “The Last Dance” aired. His family is auctioning the goods.
