    1989-90 Charles Barkley Game Worn Philadelphia 76ers Jersey. Has there ever been a basketball player the size of Charles Barkley with his skill set? Standing just 6-4 ½ tall (yes, he was listed at 6-6), Sir Charles played both the small forward and power forward positions, which is unheard of in the modern game. Still he managed to post up and outrebound much taller opponents with brute strength and unnatural leaping ability. He even holds the distinction of being the shortest man to ever lead the NBA in rounding. Despite playing between 252 and 285 pounds, he would routinely go coast-to-coast, using his deadly combination of speed and ball handling ability to fly by the quickest players in the league. A legendary leaper, his first pro coach tells a story how Charles came to training camp overweight at 302 pounds yet was still able to stand directly under the basket and dunk flat-footed off either foot.

    The jersey offered here was worn by Barkley when he was twenty-six years old and at the peak of his brashness and athletic powers. The classic 76ers style is also the most desirable of all his uniform styles. In this jersey, Sir Charles rang up 25.2 points per game, 11.5 rebounds per game and shot 60% from the field. This "Sand Knit size 50" jersey was worn by The Chuckser when on the road. The following tags are sewn in the tail: "89," "2" LB," 76ers exclusivity and Sand Knit size. The jersey shows light wear with slight puckering on the reverse "3" digit. Pin marks are visible throughout from framing. Letter of provenance from Basketball Hall of Fame. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
