What does a basketball hoop backboard have to do with sneakers? Not a damn thing, but this Ultimate Michael Jordan backboard is just to cool not to show off.
Bird Club Clothing, a company known for their graphic tees revolving around the basketball and sneaker industry, and Like Mike, another graphic tee company responsible for producing Jordan-inspired t-shirts, got together to produce this one of a kind background honoring the GOAT. The crew did everything from scratch, starting out by cutting a piece of wood into the shape of a background. From there they got their stockpile of Sole Collector, Sports Illustrated and Beckett magazines together and started cutting out every image that involved Jordan, or his shoes, and pasting them in a collage throughout the backboard. There’s even a few pics of Spike thrown in there. After all the cutting and pasting was done, a clear coat was used to protect and preserve the pictures and a hoop was fastened to the fixture to make it official and playable.
For those of you who reside in Florida, this Michael Jordan Backboard is on display at the newly opened Sole Fly sneaker boutique in Miami. For those of you not around the MIA area, follow the jump to check out the photos of this masterpiece.
