Born In '95



Let's throw it back to 1995, Canadian basketball history was made. Two teams representing each Canadian coast entered into the NBA; The Vancouver. Grizzlies and The Toronto Raptors were born. On November 3, 1995, both teams played their first ever NBA regular season games. Vancouver defeating the Portland Trail Blazers by a score of 92–80 in Portland and The Raptors' against the New Jersey Nets at the SkyDome in front of 33,306 fans.  The Vancity Original® Brand has collaborated with Mitchell & Ness to commemorate both teams with our Born in '95 capsule. To honour the past, celebrate the present, and of course anticipate, with glory, the future of Canadian teams represented in the NBA. This collection consists of headwear, hoodies and tees that show love for both coasts reminding Canadians and the world over that the NBA lives here!
