The shirt has faded a good bit, some cracking in the graphics and the size tag has a previous owners? name marked on it. Along with the name written in marker, the size tag has faded, making it hard to read, looks like it may be a youth size large shirt. It also measures around the size of an adult small.

Space Jam, released in November 1996, is an animated sports comedy film starring Michael Jordan. Michael is enlisted by the Looney Tunes to help them win a basketball match against a group of aliens (the Nerdlucks) who intend to enslave them as attractions for their theme park. The Nerdlucks steal the talents of NBA stars to transform themselves into the large, muscular, and talented “Monstars”. Jordan organizes the Looney Tunes into a team called the “Tune Squad”.
The Monstars dominate the first half of the game. Bugs Bunny and Jordan rally the Tune Squad in the second half and with seconds left in the game the Tune Squad is only one point down. Remembering advice from Bugs, Jordan uses cartoon physics to extend his arm and dunk the ball, winning the match with a buzzer beater. Giving up their stolen talent, the Monstars revert back to the Nerdlucks and decide to live with the Looney Tunes. Jordan visits the incapacitated basketball players and returns their talent. He then returns to the Chicago Bulls to resume his basketball career.
Super cool vintage 90’s Space Jam Monstars T-Shirt! Would make a great gift for that Space Jam fan and/or collector!
