It has been no secret that, since 2003, Nike’s merger acquisition of storied footwear brand Converse has aided both in the breadth of the ever-expanding Nike empire as well as the longstanding sustainability of Converse as a brand. The latest news out of Portland today comes with the announcement that Jordan brand will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of MJ’s game-winning shot in New Orleans that sealed a North Carolina national championship. Paying homage to the Converse shoes that Jordan was wearing that day, the 2012 Commemorative Pack includes an autographed pair of shoes in the customary North Carolina blue and white, as well as a signed Michael Jordan number 23 jersey. Limited to only 30 packs, each autographed pack will be sold via a special eBay auction with all proceeds going to benefit the James R. Jordan Foundation.
