Air Jordan VIII Retro 'Playoffs' appeared April 2013 as first Jordan sneakers in over three yearswith retro card (*'Bugs Bunny' Jordan 8 Retro released later that month, but retro card previews only shown after 'Playoffs'). Retro cards disappeared a few years back, with a brief reintroduction on 2009 Jordan 12s.
One key detail here is 2009 XII cards had all twenty-four Air Jordans that had released to that point. These 'new' cards showing up on forthcoming Jordan 8 Retros only go up to 22 (*Air Jordan XX2 was active when last Jordan VIII Retro colorways released in 2007).
Early June, release date pushed back from 15th to Saturday, June 29th.
