Philadelphia Eagle's quarterback is embarking on another business venture and part of the proceeds will benefit inner-city youth!
Vick is launching a sports clothing line that will be released exclusively to the East Coast in retail stores 'Modells'. And get this, the new line is also very affordable!
The line includes technical athletic clothing such as T-shirts, shorts and tank tops, according to the Associated Press. Prices are $12.99 for the children’s line and $19.99 for adult apparel. Part of the proceeds will go to the Boys and Girls Club of Philadelphia.
“I don’t want to reveal too much,” Vick said. “The most important thing right now is to get this out there to my fans and, as time goes on, I’m going to continue to keep my eyes on the prize, which is having success on the football field. I think that correlates to my off-the-field success — just for my legacy, for my brand. I think this is an awesome opportunity for me.”
Of course, re-establishing Vick’s personal brand has been a mission for No. 7 since being released from prison in May 2009. It was a long climb, but he seems to be back at the top of the mountain. Vick signed an endorsement deal with Nike last summer and recently got married to longtime girlfriend Kijafa Frink. According to The Wall Street Journal, Vick has restored his brand 65-75 percent since leaving prison.
Affordable and proceeds go towards helping the Philadelphia youth--it gets no better than that!
