“Easy” Ed Macauley was the first ever NBA All-Star Game MVP and appears in the first seven games. He was named to the All-NBA First Team three times and was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1960. Macauley is the youngest male player to be inducted (age 32) and has his No. 22 retired by the Boston Celtics franchise. On the inside of the front center tail is a “Horace Partridge” size “40” manufacturer’s tag with a size “L” flag tag attached. Near the right inseam is a size “40” tag. The player number “50” appears on both the front and on the back in white tackle twill sewn directly onto the blue jersey. There are six red tackle twill stars surround each player number. Macauley wore the No. 50 only in the All-Star game, giving up his number that season to Slater Martin. Macauley signed below the front player number with the added inscription, “H.O.F ‘60” and in our opinion, rates a 6-7 overall. Two blue stirrups with red and white stripes. Each is signed by Macauley in black pen with the added inscription, “H.O.F. ‘60” and in our opinion, rates a 7 overall. These items are properly tagged, were presented to us as game-used and in our opinion show appropriate use. Accompanied by a full JSA LOA and a Macauley family LOA.
