Bismark, North Dakota (AP) -- A previous owner of McDonald's restaurants in North Dakota is about $10,000 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 for basketball icon Michael Jordan. The promotional item was sold in the Chicago and Minneapolis area for a short time in the 1990s. 

Mort Bank, of Bismarck, sold the gallon jug of sauce on eBay for $9,995. He says the buyer is from Chicago, where Jordan led the Bulls to six NBA championships in the 1990s. Bank would not identify the buyer other than to say it's not Jordan.
