Extremely rare shirt that was made to give the players and coaches of Virginia Tech ONLY IF they won the 2000 Sugar Bowl (National Championship). However, Florida State beat Virginia Tech 46-29. Following the game, all other examples of this shirt were destroyed, with only a handful of others kept at Nike. I was given this shirt by a former Director at Nike several years ago. Would make a great addition to any Virginia Tech collection or just a fun conversation piece for any fan or alumni of Virginia Tech.
