    1996-97 Shaquille O'Neal Game Worn Los Angeles Lakers Jersey. Continuing in the tradition that brought the greatest in basketball, from Wilt to Kareem to Magic, to the City of Angels, the Lakers succeeded in 1996 to bring the great Orlando Lakers center Shaquille O'Neal into the fold, issuing him this home yellow mesh jersey for use on his new court. The massive gamer, tagged "Champion [size] 56" in the tail, with a "96-97 Exclusivity" tag to the left with "Body Length +6" designator, shows light but definite wear, not unusual for a superstar accustomed to changing jerseys every game. "Lakers 34" is sewn to the chest in purple and white tackle twill in its proper single-stitched format. The same holds true for the "O'Neal 34" that finds a home on verso. It should be noted that all player and team identifiers are placed properly both horizontally and vertically, in contrast to game cut jerseys of the same era. The golden embroidered "NBA" logo, almost invisible against the yellow mesh of the jersey body, further designates this gamer as dating to the 1996-97 season, the Golden Anniversary of the league. A special jersey from the big man's first season in the West. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
