    Circa 1988 Larry Bird Shootaround Worn Jersey & Shoes. Larry Bird's practice habits were legendary. All too many times, Bird could be seen at the arena hours before his teammates hitting jumper after jumper. There never was a break when you were Larry Legend. Gifted from Bird to a close friend is the "Sand Knit [size] 44" road jersey and shoes. These did not see game action but were worn when Bird was readying himself for the hardwood. The jersey shows outstanding use on the single-color white tackle twill numbers. Three labels appear in the tail: "88" (year), Sand Knit size and Celtics exclusivity. The green Converse shoes show excellent use, as would be expected from shoes worn in shootaround. Added padding is fitted into the sides for a more comfortable feel. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
