    Description

    Early 1970's Wilt Chamberlain Game Worn Jersey. The common theme among the numbers that make up Wilton N. Chamberlain's Hall of Fame credentials is that those numbers are huge. One hundred points in a single game. Over 31,000 career points. Fifty or more points in 118 games. Almost 24,000 career rebounds. Even his "extra curricular" numbers defy all logic, and only add to the legend of this all-time great. We are privileged to present this important yellow cheesecloth gamer, worn as Wilt was putting the finishing touches on these monumental numbers as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers. While most gamers belonging to modern NBA superstars that reach the hobby today offer minimal wear, the aggressive seven-footer put excellent wear into this offered specimen, dating from a time when even the greats were issued no more than two homes and two roads for the entirety of a season. The shirt shows quality surface wear and marginal tag and neck wear, while the white and purple tackle twill identifiers show nice puckering from exposure to salty sweat. Wear at the stitch edges should also be very easy to spot. "Lakers 13" appears in classic style on the jersey's front, while "Chamberlain 13" identified the man who certainly needed no introduction. A simple and proper "Tiernan" tag is affixed at the hem of the tail at front and center. The jersey displays beautifully, though a few minor and unobtrusive red stains on the jersey's front must be noted for accuracy. It remains a high-quality late career representation, certainly worthy of placement in the finest of game used basketball jersey collections. Adding to the display possibilities is a pair of contemporary matching shorts, not belonging to Chamberlain but identical to those he wore along with the offered jersey. A number "20" swatch is sewn below the rear waistband. The shorts show the same minor staining present on the jersey, but again this is not visually arresting and does not mar the beauty of the display. LOA from Lou Lampson.
