    Description

    Early 1960's Marques Haynes Harlem Magicians Game Worn Uniform from the Marques Haynes Collection. While Marques Haynes had his number "20" retired by the Harlem Globetrotters, it must be noted that he wore other numbers with the 'Trotters during his tenure with the team, notably 28, 34 and 40. In the same manner, his Fabulous Magicians presence was traced through his famous "2 1/2." However, prior to creation of that unique number, and before the team added the "Fabulous" verbiage, he wore several other numbers with the team. One version is offered here with number "5" sewn on in tackle twill. Bearing the classic orange and black theme, the jersey states simply "Magicians." This was a result of the litigation with the Harlem Globetrotters over use of the word "Harlem" by a touring basketball company. The jersey shows great use and retains its size tag of "42," slightly over Marques more common size "40." The belted satin shorts display size "38." It must be noted that, while the majority of Marques Haynes' uniforms were manufactured by Rawlings, this jersey and trunks pair was made by MacGregor. While stating size "38," the shorts appear much smaller and generally in line with his more customary size "32." An extremely rare uniform display from the Marques Haynes Collection. LOA from Lou Lampson.
