    1987-88 Robert Parrish Game Worn Boston Celtics Jersey, MEARS A10. Together with Larry Bird and Kevin McHale, Robert Parrish formed the most dominant front court in the history of the National Basketball Association, heralding a return to dominance unseen since the days of Russell, Cousy and Heinsohn. Yet again the 1987-88 Celtics ran away with the Atlantic Division, leaving the second place Washington Bullets a remarkable nineteen games in its wake. Presented is a kelly green mesh gamer from that Beantown juggernaut bearing game use characterized by the experts at MEARS as "moderate to heavy."

    The Hall of Famer's fabled double-zeroes adorn front and back in white tackle twill, beneath "Celtics" and "Parrish" respectively. Lower left front tail bears dual Sand-Knit tagging denoting Celtics exclusivity and size "46." To the left are two embroidered swatches reporting the "87" vintage and "2" LB" tailoring note. A 9+/10 black sharpie autograph on the chest completes the package.

    Like the Kevin McHale jersey likewise presented in the Final Session of this Platinum Night auction, the jersey derives from the personal collection of former Celtics CFO and Senior Vice President Joseph DiLorenzo. It is accompanied with his letter of provenance which allowed it to garner the rare perfect A10 designation from MEARS for a post 1985 jersey. LOA from MEARS, A10. Full LOA from PSA/DNA (autograph). Full LOA from James Spence Authentication (autograph). Letter of provenance from Joseph DiLorenzo. LOA from Heritage Auctions.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
