How many people watched Michael Jordan drain "The Shot" over Craig Ehlo in 1989 and mimicked His Airness in their driveway, on the basketball court or even in the office after crumbling up a piece of paper and tossing it toward a garbage can?

Now, when they imitate MJ, sports fans can look the part, too. Well, in one area, at least.

Mitchell and Ness, a Philadelphia-based sports clothing company, is teaming up with Nike and Jordan Brand to release limited-edition Jordan jerseys.

The jerseys will highlight some of Jordan's iconic moments, including "The Shot" against Ehlo and the Cavaliers in Game 5 of the 1989 Eastern Conference First Round.

With the NBA All-Star break coming up, the first jersey in the series will be released on Valentine's Day and honors the 25th anniversary of the 1989 All-Star Game, in which Jordan scored 28 points.
