Description

    Mid-1980's Len Bias Game Worn University of Maryland Terrapins Jersey. One of those special players who possessed amazing leaping ability, a staggering physical stature and uncanny ability to create plays, Len Bias was considered one of the best players in the nation during his college days with the Maryland Terrapins. But that excellence ended in tragedy, when on June 19 1986, shortly after the Boston Celtics selected the All-American forward second overall, Bias died of a cocaine overdose, which stunned the sports world.

    Offered here is Bias' Maryland gold dazzlecloth jersey that he wore during the mid-1980's with the ACC powerhouse. Exhibiting minimal wear throughout, the flashy garment presents the proper screened-on identifiers on front and back. In addition, the correct "Champion [size] L" and "3" Extra Length" tags are in the tail. One of the most intriguing and significant basketball items in our May catalog auction, this piece will be sure to attractive heavy bidding from the most advanced roundball enthusiasts. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
