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”.
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.
In 2001, 2004 and 2007 the retro card returned with the Jordan 1 which features the iconic “Jumpman” playground dunk.
Air Jordan 2 Retro Cards
Again in 1994 when the Air Jordan 2 was first retro’d, Nike included a larger card with the Jordan 2 on the back in black and white.
In 2004, Jordan Brand brought the retro cards back which features Michael Jordan flying through the air and dunking. This was taken from the 1986 commercial.
A third card was issued with the Doernbecher 2.
Air Jordan 3 Retro Cards
When the Air Jordan 3 first re-released in 1994, they also contained the larger retro cards.
In 2001 when Jordan Brand decided to retro the Jordan 3 once again, the legendary dunk that won MJ the Slam Dunk contest in 1988 was featured on the front. Same goes for the 2003 and 2006 releases.
