    Description

    1983-85 Larry Bird Game Worn, Signed Boston Celtics Jersey. The Boston Celtics were a downtrodden organization before Larry Bird arrived. The once proud franchise had fallen on hard times. Larry Legend was the perfect tonic as he provided the NBA a breath of fresh air and the city of Boston a signature star it so-richly deserved. Originally obtained at a charity auction, according to our consignor, is this "Sand Knit [size] 46" home white jersey. Constructed out of cheesecloth material, the preferred material for Bird collectors, this jersey shows regular superstar wear. Each of the identifiers is created in single-color Kelly green tackle twill and exhibits signs of use. Fraying and numeral softness suggest wear. A few minor stains are visible on front. Bird signed the front and back in felt tip ink. Sewn in proper fashion are two Medalist Sand Knit labels - exclusivity and "Medalist Sand Knit [size] 46." Bird donned this top when he helped save the NBA from certain disaster. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
