    Circa 1980s Game Worn Basketball Shorts Lot of 3. Here we offer three pairs of game worn shorts used in NBA competition during the 1980s. First, we offer a pair of shorts from the Indiana Pacers forward Clark Kellogg, with high probability from the 1982-83 season, but could also have been from the 83-84 campaign. Heavy white mesh is trimmed with royal blue and yellow. Pacers logo is screened on the front left. Front inner drawstring is still present and shows heavy wear. Russell Athletic size tag (34) and washing instructions label is inside waist band. Inner back waistline sports a royal "33" block iron-on identifier, signifying Kellogg's jersey number. Overall wear is present.

    Also, from the 1986-87 season we offer Walter Davis' purple knit trunks with orange sun burst logo and "Suns" on either side. Orange and white trim the waist band and short bottoms. NBA logo is present in proper location and was a new institution during the 86-87 season. Waist tagging consists of Sand Knit dual labeling and three swatch designator. In black sharpie is written "1, 86-87" on the set/year swatch, while the other two swatches designate customizations done: "1" HR" for the rise, and "1" IN" for the length. The Sand Knit size 36 label has a "6" written in black sharpie, representing Davis' jersey number. Solid wear is evident.

    Kelly Tripucka's shorts from his 1989-90 season with the Charlotte Hornets round out the lot. The teal away shorts are from Tripucka's first season with the team. Teal, blue and white trim is along the bottom edge of the shorts, and an embroidered Hornets logo is attached to the buckle area. Waist band labels include "89" year swatch, "#7" identifier to signify Tripucka's jersey number (a crossed out "30" is also in the upper right corner), Hornets exclusivity label and MacGregor Sand Knit 34 size label. Solid wear is evident. LOAs from Lou Lampson.
