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. Elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1998. Top 50 All-Time player. On the left front tail of this knit jersey is the "Medalist Sand-Knit" manufacturer's tag with the jersey size "46" on it. Above is an additional manufacturer's exclusive tag that reads "Designed & Tailored Exclusively for the Boston Celtics." Adjacent are two additional manufacturer's embroidered tags with "3" L.B." and “87” on them. Across the front is "CELTICS." Below that and on the back is the player number "33." Across the back is "BIRD." All lettering and numbering is done in green tackle twill. There is an autograph on front in black marker that 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. An additional LOA will be provided.
