    1979-82 Michael Ray Richardson Game Worn New York Knicks Jersey & Shorts with Photo Match. Michael Ray Richardson's NBA journey is a cautionary tail to any prospective hoopster - Too much too soon. The man labeled as New York's next true superstar, Richardson's drug problems were too much to overcome and his play suffered. The guard put heavy use into this "Medalist Sand Knit [size] 40" pullover. While the jersey style wasn't favored for long, it did give the Knicks some personality. Consistent wear is shown throughout with heavy puckering on the two-color tackle twill identifiers. "20 New York" is centered on front while "Richardson 20" is strewn across the verso. Three tags appear in the tail: Gerry Cosby, Knicks exclusivity and size. The cherry on top are Richardson's matching shorts. An interlocking "NY" logo is screened on front. Four tags occupy the waistline: size, Medalist Sand Knit (faded "20" markered on), Knicks exclusivity and Gerry Cosby. We have an on-line photo which does match this very jersey to a tee. Oh what might have been. LOA from Heritage Auctions.

    Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am regarding the sale of my hockey jersey. You were great to work with, you answered all my phone calls and e-mails in a prompt manner, and you did a great job marketing the jersey.
