Michael Jordan Rookie Card x Pause
I always found this Michael Jordan rookie card from Fleer hilarious. Back in high school we used to love saying “in ya mouth” whenever we were hooping and pulled off a nice play (say, clapping boards, hitting a jumper in someone’s face, and eventually, dunking on a burger).
In this coveted rookie card what appears to be Michael Ray Richardson of the New Jersey Nets is seeing firsthand one of MJ’s high flying forays to the cup. The angle of the photographer’s shot makes it seem like Sugar Ray (yep, that was his nickname) is one of the victims in those Nike ads that got homosexuals in a tiff and were banned a few years back. Pause indeed.
