    Circa 1986-87 Larry Bird Game Worn Boston Celtics Jersey. Worn during the peak of Larry Bird's career, and accompanied by a letter from the team, which was issued and signed by VP of Marketing Tod Rosensweig in 1987, this beautiful home jersey will be sure to turn the heads of the most discerning roundball collectors. The only question is, how many times did this jersey hit the legendary parquet of Boston Garden? Exhibiting noticeable use, with some light staining on the front, this jersey presents the Celtics' classic kelly green tackle twill sewn-on numerals and lettering on the front and back, with a vintage Larry Bird signature on the front in blue ball-point that is barely visible. The proper "Sand-Knit" and "[size] 46" double tagging is present in the front exterior tail, with an evident team restoration on one of the back No. 3's, which appears crooked, but passable. The team letter reads as follows: "This letter will serve as verification that the Boston Celtics game jersey recently purchased in an auction benefiting Brandeis University was, indeed, an authentic Larry Bird jersey." The eye appeal of this Hall of Fame-caliber piece is off the charts, and a solid representation from the Celtics' legend. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication (autograph). Pre-certified by PSA/DNA (autograph).
