We start of the countdown with this badboy right here. This comes from the ’88 Slam Dunk Contest. He battled Dominique Wilkins and gave him a viscious L.
9) Hare Jordan
Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny team up in this retro promo poster for the 1996 movie release of Space Jams. Imagine a modern day MJ/Bug Bunny/Disney team-up in today’s world were you can’t no longer tell the difference between real life and CGI. Bananas!
08) Air Superiority
A much lesser known poster of the jumpman shooting his famous fade-away jumpshot. Jordan is wearing a Bulls outfit for a Barcelona promo poster. I’m guessing these were pumped out prior to the ’92 Olympics in Spain.
This poster used to be everywhere. From Wal-Mart, K-Mart to the quikie mart around the corner. Now only a few exist and are more rare than the Owen Hart Accident tape.
Every kid that steps on a playground has dreamed about playing ball with a professional basketball player. This poster plays on those feelings as Mike steps on the court and hovers right over you.
5) Free Throw Line
Another poster from the ’88 Slam Dunk Contest but this time, the pose is iconic. Jordan took the dunk contest to a completely new level as he took off from the free throw line and took home the win.
4) Art Of The Dunk
In Retrospect, Not the best looking poster but it generated a great deal of money for Nike. It’s one of the most memorable poster period.

2) Six Rings
This poster has butthurt tons of haters as the jumpman shows of all six of his championship rings. At the time it seamed a bit cocky, but when you win so many rings, you’re entitled to it.
1) Air Jordan
At #1, Here’s the poster that inspired a logo that has become the most iconic logo of any single human being. This poster set the tone for all the success he has had in the sneaker world.
