    Early 1980's Magic Johnson Game Worn Shoes - From Family of Sandy Grossman. Blessed with the size of a power forward, Magic Johnson could excel at any position on the basketball court. Yes, the Magic Man even spelled Kareem Abdul Jabbar at center when called upon in the 1980 NBA Finals. Worn in the early 1980's are these "Converse [size] 14.5" shoes. The tip of the right shoe has moderate scuffing from NBA battles. Both shoes feature "Magic" screen printed on the sides. Magic gave these shoes to TV sports director Sandy Grossman along the way. While there have been some mid to late '80's Magic Johnson game-worn shoes offered, these are at a severe premium. Remember, NBA players didn't just wear a pair of shoes for one game and discard them during this time period. These would have been worn for multiple games before being removed from the hardwood. Letter of provenance from the son of television director Sandy Grossman. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
