In the market for an amazing vintage Michael Jordan t-shirt? Then check out these gems found for sale over at the website etsy.com from the seller ADAM ADAM. Here we have a collection of some very cool and very hard to find Michael Jordan Nike t-shirts from the early 1990's. There are five shirts total, ranging from the Air Jordan V through VIII. We get appearances by Mars Blackmon, Bugs Bunny, Marvin the Martian, and even a promotional shirt for Michael Jordan's restaurant. Unfortunately, the black outer space shirt (and my personal favorite) has already sold.
After contacting the seller, he had this to share with me: "I bought the Restaurant one off eBay about 3 years ago, and I always see if people have more they may have not listed yet, and he had lots more. I could only afford to buy the 5 I did in the end... But like most things I own I bought them because they look nice, but way too big." Then speaking on the rareness of the shirts: "I've seen the black space one a lot here and there, but the others are more rare, especially the restaurant one with the map all over it. I've only ever seen a played down version, with no map and big graphic, just a small logo."
So here they are, in all their glory. Have a favorite?
