We don't even need to talk about the significance and legendary status when it comes to MJ, his career, and his coinciding brand. Just the mere fact that we're posting imagery of his original contract with Nike should speak for itself. Jordan inked his initial deal with the Swoosh in October of 1984 and the rest, as they say, is history — well, until the hold Jordan Brand thing. All in all, however, we'd say it was a fairly smart move by both parties — wouldn't you? (Just wish we could see all the fine print.) [via Sneaker Watch]
