    Early 1980's Dan Issel Game Worn Uniform. Colorful "rainbow" road uniform features both jersey and trunks from Hall of Fame center/forward Issel, one of just four Nuggets honored by the franchise through retirement of his jersey number. The distinctive style is banded by the aforementioned rainbow at the ribs, the Rocky Mountains screened over the top. Number "44" is applied in white and yellow tackle twill just above, and "Denver" just below. Verso finds a white block lettered "Issel" applied to a navy nameplate, and number "44" repeated in white and yellow. "Powers Mfg. Co. Size 48" label remains affixed at lower left front tail. Matching shorts supply a white and yellow "Nuggets" applied in tackle twill at right thigh, and another "Powers Mfg. Co." label at interior waistband with "Size 40" and "Long" designators. Number "44" is written in sweat-bled marker here. Wear is light but definite. The combination of a memorable style, the inclusion of trunks, and the elite status of the uniform's former owner makes the offered lot a rare treat for the advanced collector. LOA from Lou Lampson.
