Authentic NBA merchandise, memorabilia, and apparel
Managed by International Athletic Trading Company, Inc., the NBA Store in Manila will offer basketball aficionados authentic NBA merchandise and memorabilia. That’s is so true and that’s what we saw last night as we were there to grace the opening of the biggest NBA store in Asia. There are lot of merchandise to choose from and we just can’t get over with it. The only item we can’t find are Michael Jordan‘s rare collection No. 23 Chicago Bulls t-shirts which are considered to be premium and are not available yet in the NBA Store in Manila.
Nonetheless, we settled, bought and brought home LeBron “King” James No. 23 Cavs t-shirts and the official NBA icon shirt that completed our basket.
“Basketball is a way of life in the Philippines, and we are excited to be working witht he NBA to open an official NBA Store right her in Manila,” said Melvin Lloyd Lim, President and CEO, International Athletic Trading Company, Inc. “The NBA STore will not only offer the country’s widest range of NBA merchandise and apparel, it will be a destination for future NBA activities, something our Filipino fans can look forward to.”
