Heads up, baseball fans. If you're looking for some gear to set you apart from other fans, check out what Topps (yes, the baseball card company) just made available: Rad throwback shirts that celebrate some of the best teams of the '70s and '80s.

That's the Oakland shirt at the top of the page. The others are below. Check 'em out:

The first Shaq Attaq shoe hit the court in 1992, the same year the legendary big man made his NBA debut. Reebok Classic brought the sneaker back last year, and today the company releases a purple-and-yellow colorway.

This newest Attaq celebrates Shaq's days as an Louisiana State University Tiger — just in time for the NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans. The shoe has everything Shaq Attaq fans expect (a chunky hightop with iconic designs, including the all-important Pump), but the LSU-inspired edition gets wild with a purple and yellow tiger stripes on the back of the shoe and a wildlife print stamped on the body.

Here's a closer look at the sneaker. And be sure to check out the funny clip of Shaq dancing — or trying to, anyway — while dressed up as the world's biggest barber.

The first Reebook Classic release of the year hits stores today, and takes things really old school. The Kamikaze I was the footwear of choice for Seattle Sonics great Shawn Kemp. He wore the shoe starting in 1994, and to mark its 20th anniversary Reebok is bringing it out of retirement.

Here's a closer look at the Kamikaze I, as well as a shot of Kemp wearing the shoe during his playing days, and a photo of Kemp with the Concord High School basketball team in Elkhart, Indiana. Kemp attended Concord High, and along with Reebok he donated pairs of Kamikazes to the school's basketball team during his visit to Concord High on January 10.
