    Late 1940's Bill Sharman University of Southern California Trojans Letterman's Sweater. Before he was partnered with Bob Cousy, forming one of the greatest backcourt duos in NBA history, Bill Sharman was a notable All-American athlete at the University of Southern California. Sharman really has done it all during his basketball career. He was enshrined at the Basketball Hall of Fame as both a player and coach, was a part of five NBA championships and one championship in the defunct ABA. The Abilene, Texas native was named as one of the NBA's 50 Greatest Players of all time, and he was named All-Star Game MVP in 1955. Offered here is Sharman's original Cardinal-colored letterman's sweater that he wore during his time spent in college at SC. Presenting overall solid condition, with minimal wear, the interlocking "SC" patch is on the left breast, and shows moderate fabric loss. Sharman's name was chain-stitched in the interior, but only "Sha" remain. The manufacturer's tag is still in the collar, while its original six buttons remain intact. A truly impressive college artifact, this piece will fit perfectly in any USC, Celtics or high-end sports memorabilia collection. LOA from Heritage Auctions.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
