    1989-90 Larry Bird Game Worn, Signed Boston Celtics Jersey. While injuries ended Larry Bird's roundball career early, he did show the NBA world he could still dominate the game he helped popularize during the 1989-90 season. A year earlier, Bird was felled by bone spurs and only appeared in six games. The 1989-90 season had Larry Legend ready as he poured in 24.3 points a night and grabbed 9.3 rebounds a contest. This Kelly Green "Sand Knit [size] 46" mesh jersey was worn by Bird when he was draining jumpers and talking trash. Worth special mention is the "Follow Through" memorial armband used to honor the Celtics' owner's wife who would say those words when Kevin McHale was attempting a free throw. Four labels are sewn in the tail: "89," "3" LB," Celtics exclusivity and Sand Knit size. Light, but acceptable, wear is featured with fraying on the anchor stitching and some numeral softness. Bird sealed the deal with a 10/10 black felt tip signature. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
