Classic 1956-57 St. Louis Hawks full uniform with top and shorts game-used by Jack Coleman for the last of his nine NBA seasons. Possibly the uniform he is wearing in his 1957 Topps card, this was also possibly worn in the 1957 NBA Finals against Bill Russell and the Celtics. Red jersey and shorts are all original and tremendous use is shown on both jersey and shorts, with heavy wear to numbers and letters. Rawlings, size 44, Sisler Hummel St. Louis, and wash tagging under front tail; "Jack Coleman," Rawlings size 36, Sisler Hummel St. Louis and wash tagging in shorts. Coleman led his teams to three NBA finals, with championship titles in 1951 and '57. Not easy to find a full set from the NBA's early years, let alone from a championship player and team. Family sourced.
