Complete Air Jordan Retro Cards Guide

Some of the newer sneaker enthusiasts might not know about the Jordan Retro cards while those that have been purchasing and collecting sneakers are in the “know”.

You may have heard that the Air Jordan 8 Bugs is returning this weekend and will come with a Retro card. For some, it’s just a piece of paper but for others it spells out nostalgia.

Starting in 1994 with the first pair of Air Jordan 1, 2 and 3 being retro’d all the way up to the mid 2000s.

Seems like Jordan Brand is going back to their roots, first with bringing back the “Nike Air” and now with the return of the retro card. Enjoy our compilation below from Jordan 1-15.

Air Jordan 1 Retro Cards

The first Retro card to release by Jordan Brand was in 1994 with the Air Jordan 1 (still known as Nike Air Jordan) and was larger than the current cards.
