This is the jersey, shorts and stirrup socks from John Havlicek's second All-Star Game selection,showing good game use and yet maintained - like so much of his unprecedented personal collection - in almost perfect condition for nearly a half-century. It's also one of the more unusual uniforms stylistically from the many All-Star Game uniforms of the period, with elaborate silk-screening and traditional embroidered numbers and piping combining in blue, yellow, white and red to make an eye-catching historic artifact. Havlicek scored 14 points in the game held at the Cow Palace near San Francisco, with the East suffering through a rare drubbing, 135-120. The Size 42 Wilson-tagged jersey sports one of the busiest fronts of any All-Star jersey, with blazing yellow silk-screening of a large circular logo of the Golden Gate Bridge, adorned with white embroidered No. 17, and red screening of "1967" and four stars on each side of the 10-inch diameter circle. The incomparable Havlicek autograph appears in black Sharpie on the embroidered white "1" on the back of the jersey. Both the jersey and the Size 34 Wilson-tagged satin trunks are in essentially as-issued and problem-free condition, with no alterations of any kind visible and minimal fraying on piping or embroidered letters or numbers. Comes with an LOA from John Havlicek.
