Three documents from Michael Jordan's time at the University of North Carolina have been sold for a collective $50,000 at auction.

Two recruitment letters from the University and an original copy of Jordan's diploma were among the items up for auction. A game-worn Dream Team uniform was also sold for an additional $32,682.

The recruitment letters were sent to Jordan by assistant coach Bill Guthridge and head coach Dean Smith. The letters had been a source of contention, as Jordan's mother claimed that she had all original recruitment letters.

These claims turned out to be false and the two letters were sold for over $30,000 collectively.

Jordan played for the Tar Heels between 1981 and 1984 before his successful NBA career.

Other items in the auction at Goldin Auctions included Super Bowl rings from the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots. A Jackie Robinson game-used bat was sold for over $150,000.
