    Description

    1950-53 Lou Tsioropoulos University of Kentucky Letterman's Sweater. This colorful small forward won an NCAA title (1951) with the Kentucky Wildcats and two NBA crowns (1957-59) with the Boston Celtics. On offer here is Lou's Kentucky letterman's sweater in heavy blue wool with a seven-button-down front. The garment has two beautifully constructed and reinforced front pockets and a oversized, white chenille "K" dominating the left front. Tagging in the collar includes "Hunt's Athletic Goods Co., Mayfield, KY" and "Guaranteed 100% Pure Wool." The nearly seventy-year-old garment is in fantastic condition considering its age, with its only distractions being a few small holes in the fabric. Originally acquired directly from the Tsioropoulos family. Letter of provenance from Jan Tsioropoulos.
