NIKE, NIKE AIR JORDAN CAP, BOW TIE, INVITATION
In 1984, Nike gave Michael Jordan his own signature line of shoes and clothes, which was pivotal in Michael agreeing to sign with Nike. It was the first time the brand did anything like this, and it paved the way for many of the player collaborations we now see. The term “Air Jordan” was coined by Michael Jordan’s agent David Falk. David apparently came up with the name because Nike shoes had air in the soles and because, of course, Michael Jordan played basketball in the air.
Offered in this lot, is an invitation to the launch of the Air Jordan line, an Air Jordan Branded cap, and a black bow tie from the mid 1980s. The event, which Michael attended, was held on October 7th, in Chicago Illinois.
