Bird’s game-used official Champion green Boston Celtics away jersey from 1991-92, his final NBA season, with sewn on letters and numbers, featuring “Celtics” on the chest, “Bird” across the back, and his number 33 on both, signed on the number on the back in black felt tip, “Larry Bird.” The Champion manufacturer’s tags are sewn to the front left tail, indicating a size of 48, year of 1991, and alteration of “Body Length +3.” General wear from use and light soiling, otherwise fine condition. Bird generally wore a size 46 jersey, but following a back injury suffered at the 1992 All-Star break, he needed a larger size to accommodate his back brace during the final months of his career. The consignor notes that his brother was a financial advisor to many athletes and became friends with Manute Bol, who obtained this jersey for him via his former teammate, Chris Mullin, a friend of Bird.
