    1970's Paul Silas Practice Worn Boston Celtics Uniform & Game Worn Seattle Supersonics Sneakers. One of the most underrated players in NBA history, Paul Silas was a crucial piece on three NBA Championship puzzles during the 1970's. Known for he's ferocious rebounding and keen understanding of the subtleties of the game, he was also one of the league's top defensive forwards. Forming perhaps the best tandem of rebounders ever on the same team, Paul Silas and Dave Cowens guided the Celtics to two titles. Silas went on to win another title with the Supersonics as the team's spiritual leader and elder statesman.

    Both white and green versions of Silas' two-sided, mesh practice jersey have "Celtics 35" on the front and "35" on the back. Tons of wear from all those scrimmages at Boston Garden in the 1970's. His Sonic green suede Pony sneakers are a size "14" with vertical "Pony" on the heels and white stripe on the sides. Best is the gold "National Basketball Players Association" seal which is stamped on the outside of each shoe. Silas was its president from 1974-80. Accompanying green shorts with "Felco X-Large" tag. All pieces show heavy wear. LOA from Heritage Auctions.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
