    1985 Len Bias Athletic Bag & Game Worn Warm-up Jackets. Those participating in our October 2005 Signature auction will surely recall the incredible Len Bias Collection offered for sale, which was highlighted by the clothing he wore on NBA Draft Day, just hours before his tragic death. Somehow these pieces failed to make the sale, so we present them for your consideration now. First is a University of Maryland travel bag, complete with airline travel tags. A laminated I.D. tag has the typed designation "#34 Len Bias." Inside the bag are two sideline-worn uniform pieces: a quilted jacket with "1984 ACC Champions" and "Maryland Basketball" designs on the chest, and a long-sleeved jacket with identical design features as well as "Maryland" embroidery on the chest as well. The former has "Champion X-Large" collar tagging, while the latter has "Nike XL" collar tagging. Each has a snap front, and shows light but definite wear. The bag shows strong use but no damage. A letter of provenance from Bias' mother will accompany the lot. LOA from Lou Lampson.
