ND man gets $10,000 for jug of old bbq sauce

Gotta love eBay. Bismarck's Mort Bank certainly does. He used to own a few McDonald's restaurants and for some reason he decided to save a gallon jug of McJordon barbecue sauce, sold in limited markets for a short time in the 1990s, when Michael Jordan was leading the Chicago Bulls to NBA championships. An unidentified buyer paid nearly $10,000 for it in an online auction.

Gotta love eBay. Bismarck's Mort Bank certainly does, the Bismarck Tribune reports. He used to own a few McDonald's restaurants and for some reason decided to save a gallon jug of McJordan barbecue sauce. The special-edition concoction, sold in limited markets in the 1990s, when Michael Jordan was leading the Chicago Bulls to NBA championships.

This particular jug expired in 1992, but that didn't stop an unidentified buyer from paying nearly $10,000 for it in an online auction, the newspaper reports. Bank is getting national attention for the sale.

"I'm friends with other McDonald's owner/operators, and they just laugh when they find out I saved one gallon," Bank told the Chicago Tribune.

So Bank it's Bank laughing ... all the way to the bank. Here's the former NBA star wolfing down a burger at the height of his athletic prowess:
