    1996-97 Patrick Ewing Game Worn New York Knicks Throwback Jersey with 50th Anniversary Logo & Equipment Manager Provenance.

    UPDATE: Please note that Mike Saunders is incorrectly identified as the Knicks' equipment manager-he was actually the trainer.

    Road blue mesh 1950's throwback style displays "New York 33" on the front and "Ewing 33" on the verso, all sewn-on in blue on orange tackle twill. Orange/blue ribbed trim adorns the collar and arm openings, while the NBA logo appears in gold, a single season format to commemorate the league's golden anniversary. Tail tags include "Designed & Tailored Exclusively For NBA 50th Anniversary 1996-1997" and "Champion...48." This specimen also reports a "6 Inch Extra Length" tag on the interior and "+6" handwritten in pen on the exclusive tag. Exhibits minimal wear as this style only saw limited use by the eleven-time All-Star and National College Player of the Year, who can also claim residency in both the College Basketball Hall of Fame and the Basketball Hall of Fame. Presents marvelously.

    The jersey was obtained directly from Mike Saunders who was the New York Knicks equipment manager from 1978-2005. LOA from former New York Knicks equipment manager Mike Saunders. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
