    Believed to date to his greatest statistical season!

    Late 1960's Oscar Robertson Game Worn Cincinnati Royals Jersey. While we would have to stop short of characterizing it as a definitive photo match, an image of Big O shot on February 12, 1967 exhibits underarm piping stitching identical to the provided garment, suggesting this important relic saw action during one of just two seasons in NBA history during which the same player topped both the points-per-game and assists-per-game leaderboard (the other being Nate Archibald, 1972-73). We can state with complete assurance that the shirt exhibits a full season's wear from either 1966-67, 1967-68 or 1968-69, the three years that Robertson wore this style before departing for impending Championship glory in Milwaukee.

    A member of both the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and the even more elite 50 Greatest Players in NBA History class, Robertson's greatest influence on the game is widely considered to be considered his leadership in the groundbreaking Robertson vs. National Basketball Association antitrust suit that unshackled players from the teams that held their contracts in much the same way as Curt Flood's case had freed Major League Baseball players. Others might argue that the six-foot five-inch, 220 pound Robertson redefined the role of shooting/point guard, paving the way for big men in the backcourt from Majic Johnson to LeBron James. His 22,009 points and 7,731 assists as a Cincinnati Royal stand to this day as individual records in Royals/Kings franchise history.

    The distinctive design of the blue knit garment provides a vertical "Royals" between red stripes at left chest, balanced by a white tackle twill number "14" in five inch digits at right. Verso repeats the digits in seven-inch format beneath a uniquely fonted "Robertson" arching gently at the shoulders. The manufacturer's label is absent, the only deviation from perfection for an otherwise ideal representation. Absent are any holes or stains typical of decades-old uniforms. Unquestionably one of the finest Robertson artifacts ever to reach the hobby's auction block. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
