fashion flashback: nike’s agassi tees


While you might be falling asleep at your computer while browsing the Andre Agassi collection for adidas, let’s not forget that Nike had a cash cow on their hands back in Andre’s heyday.

Here are some eBay listings from the past year which featured vintage pieces from this line.


First up are the Challenge Court T-shirts. It doesn’t get any more retro than this (if it’s the 90s we’re talking about). I feel like I’m watching the theme sequence from Saved by the Bell. The second one from the right says “Agassi’s Rock & Roll Tennis Camp”, and the one on the left says “‘That Oughta Wake-up the Country Club'” [sic]. All the listings, now expired, are here.


And this is a delicious windbreaker from the same vendor.

It seems like Nike’s been heading — successfully — in that direction (with Rafa’s orange warm-up from the grass season and all those big logo throwbacks). But there have also been some missteps. Remember Fire & Ice?
