As you may have seen on our Twitter, I recently came across a Nike FC jacket. After a bit of digging around, here is some context to the jacket and Nike FC in general. Nike FC was established in April 2014 as a way to pay homage to all the players sponsored by Nike over the previous 20 years.


As the official website descirbes…


β€œNike introduces Nike F.C. – not just a collection but also a badge of honor representing passion, talent, irreverence and most of all the willingness to put it all on the line.”


And the relevance of the jacket?


β€œSince 1998, the Nike N98 Jacket has played a starring roll in football history. First worn by Ronaldo, prior to stepping onto the field for Brasil, the jacket is now worn with pride by footballers worldwide. Now evolved, with a lowered collar and updated hem design for a modern look, the Nike F.C. N98 Jacket extends the story of the iconic garment. “Sem risco nΓ£o hΓ‘ vitΓ³ria,” the Nike F.C. motto, is inscribed on the crestΒ and translates toΒ “without risk there is no victory.”


This provided a little bit of clarity to me as to what exactly I was looking at. Anything R9 related is really hard to resist.


How much would you guys value the jacket at? Is it a valuable piece or just an attempt to sell more merch?
