Men’s Boston Celtics Larry Bird Adidas Hardwood Classics Jersey
It’s a great time to be a Boston Celtics fan — that much cannot be disputed. Coming off a year in which they clinched the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference and a trip to the Eastern Conference Finals, Boston just picked up Gordon Hayward to make their starting lineup even more potent. One way to celebrate the amazing news is to add some old-school Celtics swag to your collection. This Larry Bird jersey is a must-have for fans of the historic Boston-based franchise.
Men’s Magic Penny Hardaway Adidas Hardwood Classics Jersey
From 1995-1997, Penny Hardaway was one of the league’s fastest-rising stars. He led the Orlando Magic to an NBA Finals appearance, averaged 21.1 points and 6.7 assists and made two All-NBA First Teams. Though his peak came quick and left just as quickly, he’s still remembered to this day for his athleticism and flair. Commemorate the former Magic superstar by ordering this slick, black pinstripe jersey — a major throwback to mid-90s basketball.
Men’s Adidas Vince Carter Hardwood Classics Jersey
Why did the Toronto Raptors go away from this logo and jersey design? I mean, seriously, it’s impossible to improve upon perfection — and that’s precisely what their early-2000s look was, perfection. Add in the fact that this jersey also reps prime Vince Carter, and you have no excuse not to buy it.
Men’s Philadelphia 76ers Allen Iverson Hardwood Classics Jersey
Another early 2000s legend, Allen Iverson achieved true legend status in 2001 when he averaged 31.1 points and 2.5 steals a night, won an MVP trophy and led the Philadelphia 76ers to the NBA Finals. The unforgettable, undersized superstar will be remembered forever — and if you order this jersey, you’ll be able to rep him forever too. (Comes in four colorways: Black, red, royal blue and white.)
Mitchell & Ness Kobe Bryant 1996-97 Authentic Home Jersey
Vintage Lakers gold, with the Kobe Bryant classic No. 8 on the back? Yeah, it’s tough to top a cooler throwback jersey than this one.
Men’s Bulls Dennis Rodman Adidas Hardwood Classics Jersey
Those later ’90s Chicago Bulls teams — featuring Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen — are among the greatest in league history. Rep greatness, and funky, off-beat defensive stalwart Dennis Rodman at the same time with this throwback jersey.
Men’s Golden State Warriors Tim Hardaway Jersey
If it’s a great time to be a Celtics fan, then I can’t even imagine what being a Golden State Warriors fan is like right now. Prove you’re a true fan of the Bay Area franchise by copping this sick Tim Hardaway throwback jersey.
Men’s Adidas Pistons Grant Hill Throwback Climacool Jersey
Much like the Raptors, it’s a mystery why the Detroit Pistons went away from this look. The eye-catching teal, the terrifying piston, with a fiery mane, this jersey is about as cool as they come. And you know who else was cool? Grant Hill, that’s who. Order this jersey as an homage to the ’90s, if nothing else.
Mitchell & Ness Dominique Wilkins Hardwood Classics Jersey
When you think throwback jersey, one of the first images that pops into your head is the old-school Atlanta Hawks No. 21 red-and-whites, with Wilkins on the back. Add this bad boy to your collection and rep one of the best dunkers of all time, ‘Nique.
Men’s New York Knicks Willis Reed Hardwood Classics Jersey
Times have been tough recently for the New York Knicks. However, if you’re a Knicks fan (or just like throwback merchandise) ordering this vintage Willis Reed jersey will make you forget about all that. Plus, Phil Jackson is gone! Better days are ahead; commemorate them by repping the franchise’s brilliant past.
That’s all for now, but that’s far from everything available on Fanatics. Check out their entire collection, which contains pages upon pages of throwback jerseys if you didn’t see anything you liked.
