    Circa 1974-75 Pat Riley Game Worn Uniform. The three-time NBA Coach of the Year is known today as "Coach Slick" and "Mr. GQ" for his natty sideline attire, but check his 1974 Topps card and you'll see he looked more like a roadie for the Grateful Dead back in his playing days. The yellow jersey and matching shorts presented here exhibit marvelous vintage wear, with classic "Lakers 12" formed in three-dimensional tackle twill on the chest, and "Riley 12" announced from verso. There is no tagging within the jersey, but this is not at all uncommon for the "Tiernan" manufactured gamers (perhaps 30% of known Lakers jerseys from the era are untagged) and should not be considered a negative. The matching shorts are likewise untagged but for a number "34" swatch sewn just below the rear waistband, a number which would correspond with the jersey number of Stan Love. Whether Riley wore the shorts or not, the aesthetics of the matched pair displayed together is first rate, and though his Hall of Fame induction is based upon his work on the other side of the painted lines, any uniform from a Springfield enshrinee is cause for celebration. LOA from Lou Lampson.
