New Jordans 2017 is throwing back to Michael Jordan’s baseball days by tying in the tradition of busting open packs of baseball cards with this upcoming Air Jordan 9 Retro release. Each pair of the Baseball Glove 9s will come wrapped, so you won’t know if you’re getting the black “Barons” colorway or the far more limited brown version. The number 45 on the shoe appears along with a lesser known number in MJ’s baseball history – the number 35.Michael Jordan shocked the world on October 6th, 1993. He announced his retirement from the game of basketball and decided to hang up his signature sneakers to become a baseball player. Tinker Hatfield and Nike scrambled to keep the Air Jordan line alive and well, and the Jordan 9 ended up becoming a unique outlier in the Jumpman signature series given that the man who it was named after was busy tying his cleats extra tight in the minor leagues and riding a charter bus from small Midwestern town to smaller Midwestern town.
