    1996-97 Arvydas Sabonis Game Worn Portland Trailblazers Jersey & Shorts with Photo Match. If not for balky knees, Arvydas Sabonis might be on the Mount Rushmore of NBA centers. A big man with unlimited range, Sabonis wore this "Champion [size] 52" jersey during his second year with the Blazers. We checked Getty Images and photo 5248873 appears to match the jersey perfectly. The white mesh garment shows acceptable wear with distressed anchor stitching on the two-color drop shadow tackle twill identifiers. The tag contains a 1996-97 exclusivity tag ("Body Length +4") and size indicator. The shoulder stirrup has a gold NBA silhouette - worn only that one season. Completing the ensemble are the matching shorts worn by Sabonis. These labels are shown in the waistline: Trailblazers exclusivity, size and "Sabonis" swatch. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
