Late 1980's Larry Bird Game Worn, Dual Signed Shoes. Before Michael Jordan took sports marketing to a global level, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson got it going. In the mid '80's, Magic vs. Bird was the centerpiece of Converse's advertising campaign. Bird wore black Cons while Magic sported the colorful yellow, white and purple kicks.

Bird was a Cons endorser the rest of his career. Originally sourced from a Detroit Pistons season tickets holder are these Bird gamers. The black leather shoes were used by Bird in the late 1980's and provided in the lot is a copy of "Bird: Portrait of a Competitor" picturing Bird wearing a similar style of shoe, namely the "Cons ERX-300" reference on the tongue. Both shoes show moderate game use, with light scuffing on the bottoms. Bird signed both on the exterior rears in bold black sharpie. A classic duo from when the NBA was at its greatest. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA (autographs). Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication (autographs).
