One of the greatest to have ever played the game, Elgin Baylor was a superstar and innovator of a different time as one of the NBA's top stars of the 1960s. Unfortunately, his prowess on the court is mostly recounted through word of mouth from those who saw him play in person. His best moves and most creative offensive displays were never captured on film, and since he played at the same time as Wilt Chamberlain, Baylor never enjoyed a scoring title, although he averaged 27.4 points per game during his 14-year career. Yellow Los Angeles Lakers jersey is one that he wore for his last full season, in 1968, as LA fell to the rival Boston Celtics in the finals yet again. Dureen jersey with “Lakers” across the top of the front with his number “22” below in 3-D style white on purple tackle twill. Back is arched, “Baylor” with “22” again in 3-D style. The use on the jersey is about as perfect as you can ask for, showing the ideal amount of use and wear, confirming that it was worn for multiple games, possibly a considerable part of the season. Slight fading to the numbers and letters, but all intact and no team repairs. No tagging. Baylor was a 10-time NBA First Team selection and his number 22 has been retired by the Lakers. Jersey grades A9 with 1 point deducted for a missing tag that most likely fell off due to heavy use.  Comes with MEARS LOA.
