This card is awesome on a few levels. First of all, it was issued by Milk-Bone Brand Dog biscuits. Second, it's a young Craig Biggio, the longtime Houston Astros star, with his dog named Shelbee. And lastly, and most important to us sneaker fans, he is wearing an original pair of Air Jordan VII's in the "Hare" colorway. Craig is proving that sneakers are coolest when they are actually worn, and not necessarily with a completely color coordinated outfit. This picture is the perfect example of sneaker culture, or lack thereof, in the early 1990's. It was a much more innocent time when blogs, camp outs, resellers, etc. didn't exist and a regular ol' guy like Craig Biggio could rock a pair of Air Jordans.
