    1973-80 Meadowlark Lemon Game Worn Harlem Globetrotters Jersey.
    The Clown Prince toured with the Harlem Globetrotters for the better parts of three decades and created memories for millions of roundball fans. Whether it be messing with a referee or hitting that impossible shot, Meadowlark Lemon had few rivals during his Hall of Fame career. We pose this question, "Where are all of the game-worn jerseys from the Globetrotters' icon?"

    We did search the archives and could only find a few gamers from Lemon's storied career. This "Wilson size 44" jersey has a labeling period of 1973-80 and shows the effects of plenty of action. Consistent puckering and numeral softness are equally dispersed throughout the identifiers. "Harlem 36" is executed in two-color tackle twill while "Globetrotters" is in single-color yellow. The NOB is crafted in small 2" font. A constellation of stars borders both sides adding a little personality. The tail features a Wilson size tag and washed out flag tag. The undecipherable label most likely denoted additional length. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
