These vintage NBA snapbacks sell out as soon as we put them up. I think the vintage logos rehash nostalgic memories in fans of watching basketball in the 80s and 90s, when players like Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, and Magic Johnson dominated the sport.

King Ice, a popular online retailer of hip hop jewelry and apparel, has teamed up with the NBA to offer its hip hop centric customers a unique array of NBA jewelry and apparel. The online retailer introduced a collection of vintage NBA team snapback hats designed by Mitchell and Ness. Demand for the vintage hats inspired the retailer to expand its NBA collection with a unique line of NBA jewelry. The original line of necklaces features NBA team logos cast in metal alloy.
Snapback hats have recently made a comeback in urban fashion featuring a plastic adjustable strap on the back to allow for one size to fit all. The hats were popular during the late 1980's and early 1990's. Eventually, the fitted baseball cap became more popular but like history, fashion repeats itself. Snapback hats have jumped to the forefront of hip hop fashion as the quintessential wardrobe accessory. The resurgence of the snapback hat brings with it the vintage NBA logo designs from the 80's and 90's. The hats, produced by Mitchell and Ness, feature classic logos like the hawk outline from the Atlanta Hawks or the colorful music note as the Utah Jazz logo. The demand for the hats even surprised King Ice.
“We’re having a hard time keeping these snapback hats in stock,” said Tom Diep of King Ice. “These vintage NBA snapbacks sell out as soon as we put them up. I think the vintage logos rehash nostalgic memories in fans of watching basketball in the 80s and 90s, when players like Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, and Magic Johnson dominated the sport. It was a golden time for basketball and these hats are a great way to commemorate the legends from that era.”
King Ice expanded their official NBA collection with unique medallion necklaces. Each necklace features an NBA team logo cast in high quality metal alloy manufactured in the USA. Team logos are available in various color combinations. The Chicago Bulls logo, for example, is available in a chrome, gold or jet black finish. Each pendant comes with a matching ball bead chain. Currently, the retailer carries a limited selection of historic NBA franchises but plans to carry more teams in the near future.
