For 13 seasons with the Boston Celtics, Bird personified hustle, consistency and excellence in all areas of play; as a scorer, a passer, a rebounder, a defender, a team player, and, perhaps above all, as a clutch performer. Bird was so self-confident that he was known to waltz up to the opponents' bench before tipoff and predict a 40-point performance for himself. He was such a deadly shooter that he sometimes practiced three-pointers with his eyes closed. Among Bird's contemporaries, perhaps only, Earvin "Magic" Johnson was considered a better passer, a player who he would inextricably be linked with forever. Few played tougher than Bird, who would leap into crowds and over press tables for loose balls. Bird was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1998. Top 50 All-Time player. On the left front tail is the "Medalist Sand-Knit" manufacturers size 46 tag. Above is the “Designed & Tailored Exclusively for the Boston Celtics” tag. Across the front is "Celtics." Below and on back is the player number "33." Across the back is the player name “BIRD.” All lettering and numbering are done in green tackle twill. Autographed on the back number in black marker and rates a 9. The jersey shows game-use and appears to have no alterations of any kind. The autograph is accompanied by a LOA from JSA. A copy of an additional LOA will be provided.
