This week we start the Kicks on Cards Weekly Collection with Charles Barkley in his most memorable signature model, the Air Max2 CB. Here Sir Charles is rocking the Phoenix Suns home version with a predominantly white upper, a colorway that has never been re-released.
We go next to one of Chuck's early 90's foes with Horace Grant in the Nike Air Force High from 1993. The Air Force High featured a criss-crossing strap for maximum lockdown and was worn by a number of NBA big men like Alonzo Mourning. In this card we also get a bonus peak at Patrick Ewing's Ewing Brand Focus model in an awesome Knicks colorway.
The third card has two high tops in one with a young high school Chris Webber with the high top fade, and one of the coolest high top sneakers ever, the Nike Air Command Force from 1991. The collection is finished up this week with Nick Anderson icing down after a game in his Air Jordan X PE and a ridiculous football card with Mark Clayton lounging on a goal post in the adidas Rivalry.
