Fans of both basketball and hip-hop will be familiar with Mitchell & Ness thanks to the earlier ‘throwback’ era in the 2000s. Rappers draped with exclusive jerseys in music videos made the company even more famous, but there was always one man missing from the brand’s authentic jerseys: Michael Jordan. Now the Philadelphia-based nostalgic company inked a deal with Nike to distribute limited edition runs of famous MJ moments in jersey form. The first jersey that Mitchell & Ness plans to release will be sometime this February and will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of MJ’s 1989 All-Star appearance with a classic red throwback lined with stars. Their next planned release won’t necessarily be too kind to Cavaliers fans, as the jersey Mike wore during the infamous “Shot” over Craig Ehlo will be available come May 2014. Each of these jerseys feature authentic materials exact to the specifications that were delegated to game-issued Michael Jordan jerseys, and will range in price from $250 to $300. What do you think of the collaboration between Mitchell & Ness and Nike?
