    1979-81 Mitch Kupchak Game Worn Washington Bullets Jersey. Mitch Kupchak was a member of the Bullets 1978 championship team and he won two more rings with the Lakers in the 1980's. A constant contributor during his NBA career, he would rather play his trade in the background as the superstars grabbed headlines. Following a successful playing career, Kupchak became an executive and eventually the GM of the Lakers. This "Wilson [size] 48" jersey was worn by the sharpshooter when he drained jumpers for the Washington Bullets from 1978-81. Good use is shown on the three-color tackle twill identifiers, which have softened and frayed from game use and launderings. A Wilson tag appears in the tail along with a "Long" extra length designator. "Kupchak" is applied to an arched nameplate which was restored at some point. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
