    Description

    1962-63 Wilt Chamberlain Game Worn Jersey. Just a year after shocking the world with a one hundred-point performance in Hershey, Wilt the Stilt suited up in this heroic gamer during the Warriors' first season in San Francisco. Though never duplicating his triple-digit feat of March 2, 1962, the legendary Hall of Fame center easily repeated as the league's scoring leader in 1962-63, netting an outrageous average of 44.8 points per game. It's clear from the strong wear that characterizes this amazing jersey that hundred and hundreds of the more than 3,000 that Wilt scored this season came while wearing it. Other chart-topping stats compiled in this wardrobe: minutes played, field goals attempted, field goals made, field goal percentage, rebounds (total and per game) and points. Yellow and blue tackle twill spelling "San Francisco 13" across the chest shows the puckering consistent with reaction to salty sweat, as does the number "13" repeated on verso. The small "44" size tag in the collar is all that remains of labeling, though it is well known that Wilt used to remove these tags for comfort. This home white jersey was acquired from Wilt personally by a ball boy for the team, and represents one of the finest jerseys from this early NBA legend ever offered for public sale. LOA from Lou Lampson. LOA from MEARS.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $25,000 - $35,000.
