    I've been buying Js since the mid-90's and personal reasons have led to me selling off my entire collection on two separate occasions. Recently, I got back into collecting again. I'm a sucker for blue colored Js, which you can see in the photo below. I've been on NT for over ten years and have a lot of respect for everyone in this community, so I figured I'd share my collection.

    Front Row: 2001 True Blue 3s, 2005 Melo 12s, 2005 Flint 13s

    Back Row: 2012 Obsidian 12s, 2014 Pantone 11s, 2015 UNC 1s, 2015 CP3 PE 13s

    Great start bro! Usually people are drawn to the classic black/red scheme,nice to see others with a different take. I'm sure you'll be back in no time. And it's a good buyers market now(of course there will always be those items that are hyped). Can't wait to see the rebuild.

    Yeah, Obsidian 12s are my favorite pair of all time. I had a pair of deadstock OGs that I sold off and I've regretted it every day since.

    I've never been a big fan of the 6s, but if I were to pickup a pair, it would have to be the 2000 White/Midnight Navy 6s. I wore them for my senior season back in 2000-2001 and had some great games in them.

    Yeah, I remember walking into Champs in the late afternoon and picking up my Size 13 without a problem. I had to pay a pretty penny to re-acquire them this time around.

    Crazy because those obsidian 12 retros were my first pair of 12's ever, never realized how comfortable they are

    The Royal Blue 1s are nice but I'm a big fan of history, so I'm a sucker for the OG High colorways that have been released recently, such as my UNC Blue 1s.
