US man sells McJordan barbecue sauce for about $12,000


BISMARCK, North Dakota (AP) - A man who used to own McDonald's restaurants in North Dakota is about US$10,000 (S$12,156) richer after selling a 20-year-old container of McJordan barbecue sauce to a buyer in Chicago.

The sauce was used on McJordan Burgers, named after basketball icon Michael Jordan.

The promotional item was sold in limited markets for a short time in the 1990s, when Jordan led the Chicago Bulls to six NBA championships.

Mr Mort Bank saved the 3.8 litre jug of sauce after selling his McDonald's restaurants in Bismarck-Mandan and Minot in 1996.
