Bismarck,ND (CNN)--A Bismarck, North Dakota man just made a killing off a 20-year-old gallon of barbecue sauce. 

Mort Bank once owned a McDonald's franchise and saved the sauce after a Michael Jordan burger promotion in 1992. 

He just sold it for nearly $10,000 dollars on Ebay. But he has a warning for the buyer, he does not recommend eating it. 

“I wouldn't want to open it up and invite my friends over and say we're going to celebrate and have some ribs with some 20 year old barbeque sauce,” Mort Banks, said. “It probably wouldn't make me very popular with my friends or relatives.”

Banks says he thinks this bottle of sauce is the last of its kind in existence. 

The McJordan sauce has an expiration date of December 8, 1992.  

The winning bidder came from... guess where?  

Jordan country of course--Chicago. 

Bank says he plans to split the $9,995 dollar winning bid with his daughter, who helped him post the auction listing.
