    1980's Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Game Worn Jersey. The ultimate Kareem jersey according to noted authenticator Dave Bushing, who assigns a top score of A10 to the yellow mesh home gamer. The rail-thin but iron-tough Abdul-Jabbar trained with Bruce Lee in the off-season and dominated the NBA on the court, taking the League's all-time lead in such categories as points scored, blocked shots and MVP awards. The active life of the jersey, which Bushing pins to the 1981 to 1987 era, places it at the center of a golden age for the Los Angeles Lakers, recalling their epic battles with the Eastern Champ Boston Celtics teams of Bird and McHale. One glimpse at this jersey, with its purple and white "Lakers 33" on the chest and "Abdul-Jabbar 33" on verso, and you can almost see the goggles and the sky hook of this Hall of Fame legend. Proper understated "Tiernan" label is in front tail. The cherry on top is a 10/10 black ink signature from the jersey's former owner on the front numeral. Wear is light but definite. A marvelous and tremendously important gamer. LOA from Dave Bushing. LOA from Lou Lampson. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
