New York Knicks home jersey worn by Hall of Fame forward Bill Bradley during the 1976-77 season. Graded A8 by MEARS. The white mesh jersey is lettered Knicks across the front and features the number 24 on the front and reverse. Bradley is lettered on the reverse, directly above the number. All front letters and numerals are applied in orange-on-blue tackle twill. All reverse letters are applied in blue tackle twill. A Cosby label appears in the collar, while a Medalist Sand-Knit 42 label is located on the left front tail. The jersey is original as issued and displays light use. 

The 1976-77 season marked Bradley's final year in the NBA. Limited to a reserve role in his final season, Bradley appeared in 67 games, averaging 15.3 minutes and 4.3 points. During a stellar ten-year career, all spent with the Knicks, Bradley averaged 12.4 points per game and helped lead the club to its only two World Championships in franchise history (1970 and 1973). A former Princeton standout, Bradley also was a member of the United States' 1964 Olympic Basketball Team, which won the gold medal. Following his NBA career, Bradley entered politics and served three terms in the United States Senate as a representative of New Jersey. He was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1983. Full LOA from MEARS (graded A8; 10 point base grade, with 2 points deducted for the light use).
