Thank you very much for the outstanding artwork which you created for our Fall '93 line. The paintings of Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Charles Barkley and Tim Hardaway were a fresh and exciting addition to Nike's past, and present, product offering.
The initial response from previews to our Sales force and key retailers has been exceptional. And a focus group of New York teens selected these to be their favorite, hands down, of all of Nike's Fall '93 Basketball product. I am sure that the reception of consumers to these products will be just as positive.
It was a pleasure to work with you, Steve. Your sense of style and design, combined with your superb talent make working with you an exciting experience.
I hope we have the opportunity to work together again in the very near future.
