Charles “Easy Ed” Macauley frustrated many of the game’s greatest big men with his swift moves and precise hook shots. Macauley started his ten-year NBA career with the St. Louis Bombers, played six seasons with the Boston Celtics and finished his career with the St. Louis Hawks. He participated in 7 consecutive NBA All-Star games, including the first ever in 1951 where he was named the All-Star game MVP. He was inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 1960 at the age of 32 and still holds the record for youngest male player to be admitted. During the 1953 All-Star game, “Easy Ed” scored 18 points, ripped 7 rebounds and dished out 3 assists for the Eastern Conference All-Stars. Centered on the inner front tail of the jersey is the “Horace Partridge” manufacturer’s tag with size “40” and a flag tag reading “LONG”. Below the inner rear collar is another “Horace Partridge” tag. Adjacent below is a white felt strip tag with the name “Macauley” in red chain-stitching. Across the front and back of the jersey is the player number “22” done in white tackle twill along with 6 red tackle twill stars on each side. “Easy Ed” has signed the front of the jersey in silver marker with the added inscription “H.O.F. 60”, in our opinion the signature rates an 8. On the inner rear waistband of the shorts is the “Horace Partridge” manufacturer’s tag with size “36”. Adjacent below is a white felt strip tag with the player name “Macauley” in red chain-stitching. The front right leg has been signed by “Easy Ed” in silver marker with the added inscription “H.O.F. 60”, in our opinion the signature rates an 8. Included are two red, white and blue stirrups. Each stirrup is signed by “Easy Ed” in black marker with the added inscription “H.O.F. 60”, in our opinion the signatures rate a strong 8 overall. The uniform ensemble is properly tagged, was presented to us as game-used and in our opinion shows appropriate use.
