It was a long time ago, but back in March of 1999, Allen Iverson appeared on the cover of Slam magazine wearing a blue Sixers Jersey and sporting an afro. It’s considered an iconic photograph that headlined a special “old school issue.”
Now sports and entertainment manufacturer FOCO is releasing a bobblehead celebrating A.I.’s appearance on the vintage cover, which looks like this:
Pretty sick, if we’re being honest.
Here’s part of the press release:
The Allen Iverson Philadelphia 76ers SLAM Magazine Cover Bobblehead depicts Iverson wearing a Philadelphia 76ers uniform while holding a basketball and standing on top of a SLAM logo. Iverson is shown in the same pose he struck on the cover of the 32nd issue of SLAM Magazine, released in March 1999. The backdrop features a display of the SLAM 32 cover, as well as a repeat SLAM logo design on the reverse side of the backdrop.
SLAM Magazine is one of the preeminent basketball publications in existence and has been a staple for basketball fans since it began circulation in 1984. SLAM is known for its widespread coverage of both pro and collegiate basketball. SLAM has also produced several iconic cover photoshoots with some of the game’s biggest stars. SLAM 32 featured this famous cover of Allen Iverson, then with the 76ers, and included a cover story about Iverson’s rise to prominence with Philadelphia.
The bobblehead is available for a 45 dollar preorder at the FOCO website. There’s also a jigsaw puzzle of the famous cover.
