Poster Review: Nike Air Jordan "Wings" Poster

Some sports posters are more iconic than others, and the Nike "Wings" poster is certainly one of them. First off, the poster measures 23 x 72 inches. How many six foot wide posters do you know of? It was difficult just to hang this one up simply because of its sheer size. Obviously, this is part of the appeal of the "Wings" poster. Not only could you have the "Goat" (Greatest Of All Time) on your wall, but even the dimensions of the poster were unlike anything else hanging up on sports fans' walls.

The poster features a black and white MJ soaring with his arms out like an eagle ready for flight. I'm sure many readers can remember imitating Jordan, minus the gargantuan wingspan. I even have a grey Nike long sleeve t-shirt with an image of the poster across the front. There's also an inspirational line on the bottom of the poster from poet William Blake, "No bird soars too high, if he soars with his own wings".

This classic poster is of course, out of print and difficult to find. Original copies do pop up on eBay from time to time, but it can be difficult to determine if it's indeed an original copy unless the poster comes in its original clear plastic with Nike/UPC sticker. The originals go for a pretty penny, but there are plenty of reprints out there that actually look very good and are reasonably priced. Most sell for right around $17.00 - $20.00.

Good luck in you poster chase and… "Enjoy Every Bounce of the Ball".

  1. This poster... along with the Bo Jackson B&W poster hung proudly in my bedroom for years. I wish I had room on my office walls to hang this baby up there.

    I didn't know it was out of print... I saw one at the flea market on Saturday... next month, I'll have to ask how much he wants for it.

  3. Ha, my friend had this poster in his bedroom, the same friend who I blame for my brief (but memorable) fling with basketball cards.

  4. The stitching that goes through the middle is bolder on the authentic pair compared to the replica. This is one of the hardest things to tell and would mean looking at the trainers very closely.

  5. Looking at the other side of the Yeezys, you can see the shade of grey used on the fake pair is not the correct tone of grey. On the fake pair, you are also more likely to see the glue that sticks the material and the sole together.

  8. The total price of the 40-pair shipment was estimated Fake Balenciaga Shoes. The additional three boxes loaded back onto the FedEx truck also contained eight pairs each, an estimated total of up to Best Fake Yeezys. Meanwhile, other boxes were seized at the Best Balenciaga Replica facility that contained more fake kicks along with fake designer belts.
