    1988-89 Magic Johnson Game Worn Los Angeles Lakers Jersey. The sport of basketball was at a crossroads before Magic Johnson and Larry Bird burst onto the scene. Even the celebrated NBA Finals were on tape delay and considered an afterthought. Enter the Magic man. Magic pumped some much needed excitement into the sport and helped revitalize it. Worn by Johnson during the height of Showtime is this "MacGregor Sand Knit [size] 42" Lakers mesh jersey. The pullover shows light overall wear and has its identifiers constructed out of two-color tackle twill. "Lakers 32" is expressed on front while "Johnson 32" is found on the reverse. White/purple/white ribbed material accentuates the neck and shoulders. Situated in the tail are four labels: "88" (year), "2" LB," Lakers exclusivity and "MacGregor Sand Knit" size. Magic sealed the deal with a felt tip signature on back. This may have been framed at one time as there is adhesive residue. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
