This 1992 jug of sauce once topped Michael Jordan's namesake burger at McDonalds. It sold Tuesday on eBay for $9,995.

How much would you pay for a piece of Michael Jordan history?

Not a game ball or a signed jersey. A circa-1992 plastic jug of McJordan BBQ sauce from the Bulls star's namesake burger at McDonald's.

Read the original story at NBC New York.

The one-gallon jug was marked sold Tuesday on an eBay auction for $9,995. The "unused, unopened, undamaged item" was billed a once-in-a-lifetime chance to own "the rarest of rare Michael Jordan and McDonald's collectible." 

The seller also touted the burger topping as the potentially last one left in existence, and someone put the money where their taste buds are.

To jog your memory, the 1992 McJordan burger was comprised of a quarter-pound beef patty, cheese, mustard, onions, bacon and, of course, barbecue sauce.

The shelf life of the sauce is not known.
