I think it is safe to say that Michael Jackson was a pretty big deal back in 1984. I mean the release of his epic music video by John Landis on December 2, 1983 didn’t hurt things but the Thriller album was also inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records on February 7, 1984 as being the World’s best-selling album, so you can understand why Sears wanted to help those children that wanted to dress just like the King of Pop.
But it wasn’t just the signature red jacket that a kid could wish for in 1984, there was also the “Beat It” baseball shirt!
A mere $34.99 for one of those awesome jackets? Sigh. If only I had a time machine. I don’t know about you but I can say that I saw more than a few people wearing those red jackets at my Junior High School back in the day.
