Nike Portland hosted one of the sickest sneaker release events of the year when it invited VIP guest Tinker Hatfield to meet and greet Air Jordan fanatics and offer autographs to their new Concord XI boxes. Having Tinker’s John Hancock on the best Air Jordan of all-time (as determined by our Sneaker News readers) is undoubtedly a sweet treat, so if you were lucky enough to attend the well-organized event on Friday, kudos to you! However, if you weren’t able to meet Tinker and get your Concords signed, you’re in luck: a few of the autographed Concords have popped up for sale, so get your bids in on one of the available pairs like this listing from cooperjane on eBay.
Not gonna lie I got 5 pairs and sold 3 for $350 a piece. 2 free pairs and $150..Thanks ebay ha haa.Don't hate you wouldve done the same
@Pimpin.....that's what I'm talking 'bout folk. @Etcetera_1, we all know who he is and he didn't design the FIRST 14. He design Air Jordan III through Air Jordan XV, the twentieth anniversary Air Jordan XX, the Air Jordan, the 2010, and the junk he calls the 2012. Know what you're talking about if you're going to be a smart @$$
The point is that there is no one dead or alive whose signature is worth one damn cent. The point is there will always be some gullible soul who'll pay outrageous amounts of money for something trivial. To each his own
I don't care what the circumstance, a signature, on a box for that matter is not worth a grand unless it's the dude that designed Jesus' sandals. I got a pair for retail and if it so happened that I didn't, I wouldn't pay the mark-up even though I CAN afford it. Why pay a grand for one pair with a signed box when i can get 7 pair? To each his own though.
Damn people will sell anything to make a buck, u can keep that shit! Fuck Tinker and this corny ass box!!
I saw that posting i think its ridiculous its the box not the shoes and sad thing is all the concords on ebay are like 300+ if i want to spend that kind of money ill just get the 2001 retro instead.
what is more sad is that i tried to order them online, but the traffic was too much that the website in nikestore finishline footlocker , etc crashed and left other buyers like me lose their chance in buying them
tinker shouldve made people sign a contract that if they sell the shoes hes signed for them they are fucking cum dumpsters
Dang that size 14 is priced extremely well for having the autographed box. They only chargin bout $100 more than everyone else is without the signed box
if someone isnt in to jesus then the sandals and signature are worthless to the individual. get the point now?
I got one pair, I was lucky to get that one pair, and I am keeping it and not selling them. People are quick to sell for the money, but when they lose appreciation for something so nice and literally, 'iconic' its a shame.
Tinker is like Steve Jobs to the shoe game, Point Blank Period. 2001 was the year of the HYPE-BEAST.
Nah he aint that famous. He only designed the first 14 pairs of Jordans or so and other signature edition Nikes..-___-
Steve Jobs writing his name on something isn't worth a damn thing either unless a dummy like you will pay for it.
He designed some shoes, he didn't cure cancer. It's a shoe. Granted I like the shoe but it's still just a shoe. I like my car but I don't what it to be signed by the guy who designed it.
And?????? You would pay $1000 for a pair of cheaply made shoes and a dudes signature? If you do you're dumb as hell.
Check completed listings, one pair sold for $1550.00, just cuz you dont have the bread for them doesnt mean others don't. And Tinker's autograph is more rare than MJ's, so yeah I would expect it to be that valuable.
I don't care who he is. He is just a man like you and me. To me, there isn't anyone worth paying to write their name on anything.
Actually I own 2 pair (That I got for retail) and a pair of 2000's. To your point about the BIN, it's hight becasue dumb asses like you are willing to pay $500 dollars for a sneaker. If I had missed them then I would have just missed them.
Shut your dumb mouth if you don't even have a pair concord. Do you actually know eBay BIN price is usually high? No fools will pay a grand immediately without any nego.
What if dude is a inspiring Industrial Designer? And his idol happens to be Tinker Hatfield? Tinks autograph would mean more than M. Jordan's.
