    1978-80 Nate "Tiny" Archibald Game Worn Warm-Up Jacket. Stylish short-sleeved jacket was issued to the superstar point guard shortly after his trade from the New York Nets to the Boston Celtics, with whom he would win the first and only NBA Championship of his career during the 1980-81 season. The jacket is classically styled in Celtics' tradition. Made of white cheesecloth, this style and material was first used by the Celtics' at the end of the fleece era in 1968. The style was utilized all through the 1970's and 1980's. It has a six snap button front with white painted metal snaps. The collar and sleeve cuffs each have dual kelly green stripes and three white stripes in stretch ribbed knit format. "Celtics" is spelled across the chest in green and yellow tackle twill, with shamrocks of the same formation on each sleeve. Verso features screened "Archibald" nameplate affixed with six velcro tabs, as was typical of the time. "Medalist Sand-Knit Size 42" label appears at interior collar, above number "7" swatch to match Archibald's jersey number. Solid season-long wear is evident. LOA from Lou Lampson.
