Micheal Jordan in the “Carmine” Air Jordan 6

This week we have not one, but two Air Jordan sightings, starting with none other than Micheal Jordan wearing a beautiful pair of the “Carmine” Air Jordan 6 for a Dream Team photo shoot. As you probably know, Michael wore the Air Jordan 7 that summer in Barcelona, so this may be the only time you’ll ever see him in the USA uniform matched with a pair of 6’s. On top of that, you have the cheesy Skybox graphics, which only add to the greatness of this card.

Kendall Gill - Air Force 1

An all-new Nike Air Force 1 High releases this weekend here at Finish Line with a decidedly Charlotte Hornets-inspired color palette, so I dug out the perfect card in its honor: Kendall Gill in his own white and teal Hornets Forces.

Alonzo Mourning - Nike Air Max Strong

Kendall’s old teammate is next, with Alonzo Mourning in the Nike Air Max Strong. If you’re feeling nostalgic after seeing these Hornets greats, pick up the ‘White/Hyper Jade/Dark Concord’ Air Force 1 High ’07 this Friday, August 1st from Finish Line.

Mikki Moore - Nike Air Flightposite

To close out the collection, we have NBA journeyman (before he was a journeyman) Mikki Moore in the iconic Nike Air Flightposite from 1999, and Nick Anderson in an OG pair of the Air Jordan 10.
