Here's some good news for nostalgic Kid fans who might've put on a few pounds the past nine years: The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports that the Mariners team shop was already selling a small-but-quick batch of Griffey No. 24 jerseys at $230 a pop on Thursday. It expects to get a crop of the ever-popular jersey t-shirt today and more official jerseys from Majestic ASAP.
Even better news for old shoe nerds like me: Nike had already been planning a spring release of the Air Griffey Max 1 sneaker from back in the day. Hopefully that means a rerelease of the shoe's second version is just around the corner. I owned an ultra-comfortable pair in high school and still regret trading them that summer for a pair of Air Jordan XII playoffs.
(Anyone have a pair of size 13s they'd like to part with?)
