Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has launched a new clothing line, called V7, that will be sold at Modell’s sporting goods store along the East Coast.
The clothing line will include normal athletic wear, such as t-shirts, shorts, and tank tops. The prices will be approximately $12.99 for children’s clothes, and $19.99 for adult clothes. A significant portion of Vick’s earnings will be donated to the Boys and Girls Club in Philadelphia.
It was developed in a licensing partnership with celebrity clothing-line mogul Ruby Azrak and former ICM talent agent Brian Sher, Modell’s confirmed.
Over the past three years, the 32-year old Vick has done a lot to restore his reputation, which took a major hit when he was sentenced to 23 months in prison for his role in an illegal dog fighting ring. That was back in 2007, and many didn’t think that the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback would ever earn back the respect of even a portion of his fan base.
But Vick has done exactly that, with a lot of hard work and dedication to changing around his life for the better. He now speaks out against animal cruelty, and some actually consider him to be the best thing to ever happen to illegal dog fighting.
Vick has also re-signed with Nike and is a major endorser of MusclePharm.
Vick was named the NFL Comeback Player of the Year in 2010, leading the Eagles to a division title. But he regressed in 2011. The 2012 season will tell a lot about Vick’s future with the Eagles.
