    Description

    Jerry West 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers Game-Worn Jersey Jerry Alan West, aka "Mr. Clutch," won a lot. The co-captain of America's Olympic gold medal-winning team had a storied professional career with the LA Lakers that spanned fourteen seasons. With a shot that was all water, West was on the All-Star Team every year he played in the NBA. He is the third leading scorer of all time with 25,192 points, and retired with the fourth highest scoring average (27.0 ppg) in NBA history. West led the Lakers to the NBA Finals nine times, and thrice took home the Championship trophy. After he closed his locker for the last time and hung up his sneakers, West had a successful career as a coach and front office man. Despite his numerous records that earned him Hall of Fame membership, being selected to the All-NBA First Team ten times (1962-67, 1970-73), the All-Defensive Team four times (1970-73), the NBA 35th Anniversary Team (1980), and the NBA 50th Anniversary Team (1996), perhaps nothing conveys the honor and respect held for Jerry West by those involved with the game of basketball than the use of his silhouette as the NBA logo. It's difficult to imagine a greater honor than having one's image used as a symbol of the game. Offered for your bidding pleasure is a Lakers jersey that clad the team's greatest guard during a magical season in which Jerry West, Wilt Chamberlain, and the rest of the crew went all the way, and on their journey had a record 33-game winning streak and a then-record 69 wins with only 13 losses. "Lakers" arcs upward across the chest, rising above the fabled number "44" that repeats on verso beneath the legendary surname. The proper "Tiernan" tagging at center front tail shows fabulous, sweaty wear, a theme carried throughout the yellow poly-cotton blend body. Originally obtained directly from Jerry West and destined for one of the hobby's great collections, as any that contained this piece would instantly gain that adjective. LOA from Dan Knoll, Dave Bushing & Lou Lampson/SCD Authentic.
