Two nights before a matchup with the rival Los Angeles Lakers, Hall of Famer Larry Bird decided to play with his off, left hand for the majority of the game against the Blazers. His reason why? “I’m saving my right hand for the Lakers.” Bird scored 10 of his 21 field goals against Portland with his left hand, and finished the game with 47 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists. The Celtics won the game 120-119 in overtime. Two nights later, Bird finished with 22 points, 18 rebounds and seven assists in the Celtics’ 105-99 win over the Lakers in L.A. Bird would win the regular season and NBA Finals MVP awards in the same season. On the front left tail is the Medalist Sand-Knit manufacturer’s tag size “46”. Adjacent above is the “Designed & Tailored Exclusively for the BOSTON CELTICS” tag. On the right inseam is a flag tag with jersey materials and washing instructions. Across the chest reads “CELTICS”. The player number “33” appears on the front and back and across the back is the player name “BIRD”. All numbering and lettering is done in white tackle twill. Sweat staining is present in the collar and white trim as well as the back numbers. There is a Bird autograph on the front of the jersey that JSA was unable to verify. We were told by our consignor that this jersey was originally given by Bird to a close friend who donated it to a charity auction, “The Compassionate Friends”. This jersey is properly tagged, was presented to us as game-used and in our opinion shows appropriate use.
