How would you like to own a piece of Tinker Hatfield/Jordan Brand history? Tinker’s design of the Air Jordan 3 was one of the  biggest reasons why Jordan Brand is what it is today. Details on the shoe such as the elephant print and the visible Air on the midsole made this shoe iconic right from the start. This is also that first Nike/Jordan Brand shoe that really captivated the hear of Michael Jordan and convinced him to stay with the brand.

Now an original Tinker Hatfield Air Jordan 3 sketch is currently up for grabs via an eBay auction. What makes this even cooler is that fact that all proceeds will be going to Make-A-Wish. The piece was inspired by the memory of Andrew Woodruff, a 14-year-old boy who was granted the wish of visiting Nike campus and unfortunately passed away shortly after.

Tinker had this to say about the creation: “The hand is more important than the object. The hand euphemistically is the creator. It’s a statement that is ‘a little’ in opposition to the notion that the sneaker itself is such a marvel. Maybe the story behind it, and the skill to create something from scratch, is the marvel. It’s a statement about the importance of collaboration – in this case with Michael Jordan. It’s a PRO DESIGN statement.”

At this moment (12:24 PST) there’s currently about 5 hours left before the auction ends. Highest bid is currently at $2,800. Want to own this one of a kind piece? Bid right now on eBay.
