5. Mitchell & Ness Jerseys

Mitchell & Ness existed long before Fabulous ever set his eyes on the Tetris-blocked, rainbow skyline of an Alex English Denver Nuggets jersey, but it was rappers and black athletes who netted the company millions of dollars. In 2003, Darren Rovell reported that Fab had amassed over 1,100 throwback jerseys. In a separate article, Mitchell & Ness owner Peter Capolino said that “Outkast really made Mitchell & Ness famous. About 1998, ’99, they started wearing the Houston Astros rainbow jersey [from the ’80s]. They went from Astros to the Cubs. Those guys must own $25,000 in Mitchell & Ness products.”
