    1967-71 Earl Monroe Rookie-Era Game Worn Baltimore Bullets Shooting Shirt. If the style looks familiar to you, you're likely a basketball card collector, as this distinctive fashion is sported by The Pearl on his essential rookie card, number 80 in the famed 1969 Topps "Tall Boy" issue. Like the Lew Alcindor (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) shooting shirt sold in our May 2013 auction for $47,800, this model is immortalized by its appearance in the sport's most coveted cardboard issue, and is almost certainly the very one worn in the shot. The heavy orange knit garment features distinctive navy and white trim with a number "10" on the notched left sleeve and "Baltimore" in a shallow arch across the back. Snap front remains fully functional. Interior collar is tagged "Wilson [size] M." Solid wear suggests multiple seasons of action with the Hall of Fame guard who would depart for Madison Square Garden early in 1971. Left sleeve is autographed, "To my man, Earl Monroe" in 8/10 black sharpie. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
