    1990-91 Larry Bird Game-Worn Jersey Perhaps it's the strong Irish Catholic history of Boston that makes it such a great sports town. The fans have such genuine faith. They understand and accept suffering (e.g., Boston Red Sox). And finally, when one of their athletes proves himself worthy, they know all about worship. Such is certainly the case with a big, awkward-looking kid from Indiana, who proved season after season on the Boston Garden hardwood that he was anything but awkward, carving himself a place in NBA history and in the hearts of millions of New Englanders. This white mesh gamer will be instantly recognizable to even the most marginal of basketball fans. Who could possibly forget the double three's on the chest that announced the arrival of the six-foot nine superstar? "Celtics" arches above in green satin, giving way to "Bird 33" on the back. Descending to the front tail, we find complete and correct tagging: "Custom Designed and Sewn for Boston Celtics, Year 90, Sleeve Length 0, Body Length +4" and "Champion [size] 46." The 1990-91 season marked the tenth of a dozen consecutive All-Star Game appearances for Bird, and the fourth season of his career that he led the league in free-throws, with a career best percentage of .930. The jersey, dating from yet another fantastic season for Larry, was initially acquired from a team source. The wear is marvelous, and the desirability is immeasurable. In serious basketball memorabilia collecting, after all, the Bird is the word. LOA from Dan Knoll, Dave Bushing & Lou Lampson/SCD Authentic.
