    1979-85 Magic Johnson Game Worn Los Angeles Lakers Jersey. Magic Johnson orchestrated Showtime for the Los Angeles Lakers in the 1980's. While Cooper, Kareem, Worthy and Scott were important factors in the Lakers' success, Magic Johnson was the glue which kept the entire outfit together. The oversized guard could hit a key jumper but was known for his behind the back passes and pizzazz which the Lakers are known for. Magic wore this this "Tiernan" jersey when he was leading the franchise. "Lakers 32" is centered on front while "Johnson 32" is constructed on the reverse. Light wear is shown on the home pullover. MEARS graded the bright yellow home jersey A7 given the light use. The jersey has a chest measurement of 19" (torso 30.5") which measures to "[size] 40-42" - correct for the Magic Man during this time period. White/purple/white ribbed trim surrounds the neck and shoulder inserts. A "Tiernan" tag is featured in the tail. Overall, a quality earlier career representation from the man who helped bring basketball back from the doldrums it experienced in the late '70's. LOA from MEARS, A7. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
