    1981-82 Artis Gilmore Game Worn Chicago Bulls Warmup Jacket. "There's just no one else like him in the league," Dan Issel said of his superstar teammate. "He's devastating. He does devastating things." At seven-foot two and 240 pounds, the A-Train may have been the most powerful figure ever to grip the red, white and blue of an ABA basketball, claiming both Rookie of the Year and Player of the Year honors in his inaugural 1971-72 season while recording a league-topping 422 blocked shots. During his five ABA seasons, Gilmore never surrendered ownership of the total rebounds record, averaging an absurd 17.1 per game. After the ABA's merger with the NBA in 1976, Gilmore continued his dominance as a member of the Chicago Bulls, and was named to an impressive six NBA All-Star Games.

    Presented here is the legendary Hall of Famer's Bulls warmup jacket that he wore during the 1981-82 season. Exhibiting moderate wear throughout, the red knit top has the proper "Rawlings size 46" tagging in the interior. In addition, screened-on identifiers are on the front and back, with the exception of a huge NBA sewn-on patch on the front. LOA from MEARS, Authentic. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
