‘Original retro’ is something of a paradox, but when it comes to describing this gem, that’s exactly what we’re looking at. The Air Jordan 1 forever changed the game in 1985 and did so again just under a decade later as it became the first ever retro release in ’94. As we approach an upcoming release for the classic Chicago Bulls colorway that got MJ fined $5k/game by longtime commissioner David Stern, it’s particularly interesting to examine this autographed pair from nearly two decades earlier. This size 11 pair includes an Upper Deck-certified autograph on the right outer heel, and while the shoes themselves are immaculate, their pop-top box bears all the signs of a shoe in storage for twenty years. Check out more photos after the jump, let us know how these compare to the best rare Air Jordans we’ve shown you here on Sneaker News and check out the auction from binkable on eBay.
