Spring Premier Auction 2013
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Close your eyes and picture the pregame meanderings of the legendary Boston Celtics in the middle of their heyday in the 1960's as they pile NBA titles one upon another, with the greats of the greatest dynasty in NBA history milling around the scorer's table, chatting with officials or lucky front-row fans as all concerned waited for the tip-off. Get a little more specific and conjure up John Havlicek, and this is the warm-up jacket that your minds' eye created for the moment. It's a doozy, a remarkable piece of Celtics archival royalty that brings back to life that giddy era when the NBA was young and almost every year found Boston atop the heap once again. This Wilson-tagged beauty shows considerable game use and a remarkable level of preservation and care all at once, from the blazing Celtic green to the white embroidered numbers and letters on the front and back and sleeves. Toss in an enormous black Sharpie Havlicek autograph nearly 9 inches in length, plus inscriptions of HOF "84" and can understand why this one would seem more at home in the Celtics Hall of Fame or the NBA counterpart in Springfield. It's that nice. Comes with an LOA from John Havlicek.
