When it comes to the relative degree of “must-have” for Air Jordan releases we all know the OG’s will trump the retroes every time. Of course if the OG pair in question has somehow been blessed with the autograph of Michael himself, well then you’ve got an even better collection piece on your hands. Oh what’s that you say, it was actually worn by MJ during his path to greatness? That of course is the cream of the crop, and all of those elements come together on this Air Jordan VIII, a beautiful original pair that has stood the test of time surprisingly well. Along with the game worn/autographed Air Jordan XI and Air Jordan IX that we featured previously, you could have yourself a pretty sizable collection of autographed MJ originals by now. So what are you waiting for? After you check out the images after the jump grab them now from kantorla on eBay.

I hate reading articles or when someone says OG's will trump retros everytime. OG's days r far gone i wish ppl stop speaking for everyone cuz i just dont agree. All the OG's still had quality issues too but not as much and remrmber networking wasnt even close to nowadays. Thess r okay but i rather have the cdp there much newer and have more life and less yellowing and dont have to worry about these cracking
OG's had quality issues because equipment and technology wasn't even remotely close to what Nike has now and yet they still somehow managed to go backwards as time progressed. These OG's most likely have more life in them than those horrible CDP's that we paid 310 for only to get that 1 pair out of the 2 (unless your a 15 fan). Not taking any sides I'm just a realist. OG's are for collectors retros are for people like you and me, that's how it is.
