In sneaker culture, it's not just about the shoes. The branding, packaging, and overall presentation of the product also plays a big role for 'heads in the game. From the first time Air Jordans were being retroed to the mid 2000s, each sneaker included a retro card. This was more than just a heavy cardstock. It was a piece of history about Michael Jordan and his signature sneakers.

While retro cards are seldom included with Js these days, Sole Collector decided to take a look back at the history of every Air Jordan retro card out there. From the I all the way to the XV, sit back and take in this history lesson from Sole Collector here.
