The beginning of the movie? It's been so long since I've seen that flick but throughout the entire movie, Eddie Murphy is sporting a Mumford HS tee shirt. I don't recall if the shot they used was Mumford or not though.

Don't think it's Mumford. The Mumford tie-in came about because Jerry Bruckheimer, producer of the movie, is a Mumford graduate and threw his old Mumford athletic shirt to Eddie Murphy during the filming. Murphy wore it throughout the movie. Even when the movie is shown today, Mumford's bookstore gets requests for the shirt. Buyers even get a "certificate of authenticity."

A Certificate of authenticity? That's awesome. So they still make the shirt exactly the same to this day?

Very nice that's awesome. For some reason I find that there are a lot of places that are in movies or things that were in movie are not really either showcased or they stop making them.
