    1920's-30's Notre Dame Fighting Irish Basketball Jersey. Admittedly, not as popular as the football program, Notre Dame basketball still is one of the most respected programs in collegiate sports. Named pre-tournament Helms champions in 1927 and 1936, and a Final Four participating team in 1978, Notre Dame basketball still commands a special focus among collectors.

    Offered here is the earliest Fighting Irish basketball gamer we have ever handled, and it was most likely worn in the 1920's or '30's. Presenting a gorgeous gold wool body, it has "Notre Dame" in two-color felt font on the front. Virtually unblemished, it exhibits a few small unrepaired holes, but remains in superb quality for a wool garment of this vintage. The proper "O'Shea is in the collar and there is a "[size] 38" tag in the six-button crotch piece. An extremely scarce gamer from the famed South Bend roundball squad. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
