JUST IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS, A UTAH MAN IS MORE THAN 100-THOUSAND DOLLARS RICHER...ALL BECAUSE HE GAVE BASKETBALL STAR MICHAEL JORDAN APPLESAUCE, AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME.

PRESTON TRUMAN WAS A UTAH JAZZ BALL BOY, DURING THE 1997 N-B-A FINALS, WHEN THE JAZZ FACED THE CHICAGO BULLS.

WHEN JORDAN REQUESTED HIS FAVORITE PRE-GAME SNACK -- PRIOR TO GAME 5 -- TRUMAN SCRAMBLED TO FIND IT.

AFTER THE GAME, M-J REPAID HIM...BY GIVING PRESTON THE SHOES HE'D JUST WORN, IN THE BULLS VICTORY.

AFTER STOWING THEM FOR 15 YEARS -- IN A BANK SAFETY DEPOSIT BOX -- TRUMAN RECENTLY DECIDED TO SELL THE SHOES.

IN AN ON-LINE AUCTION -- THAT CLOSED THURSDAY MORNING -- THE SNEAKERS BROUGHT MORE THAN 104-THOUSAND DOLLARS, FROM AN UNIDENTIFIED COLLECTOR.
