Description
Late 1950s Rookie Era Sam Jones Boston Celtics Game-Used Road Uniform (2) The prototypical "tall guard," Sam Jones (HOF) enjoyed a spectacular career at all-black North Carolina Central University, where this offensive firehouse scored 1,770 points playing for Hall of Fame coach John McLendon. A four year letterman, he was also a three-time All-Conference team member. Originally claimed by the Minneapolis Lakers, he returned to college upon completion of military service and was eventually drafted by the Celtics in the first round; he eventually spent all of his twelve NBA seasons in Boston. His scoring aptitude continued and as a pro he averaged over seventeen points per game. He led Boston in scoring in the 1962-1963 NBA season with 19.7 ppg, 1964-1965 NBA season (25.9) and 1965-1966 NBA season (23.5). He participated in five NBA All-Star Games, and is usually mentioned among the best guards of the 1960s along with Oscar Robertson, Jerry West and Hal Greer. Jones was known as a clutch scorer, and scored over 15,000 points in his career. He exhibited perfect form when shooting a jump shot, and along with his great clutch shooting, opponents nicknamed him "The Shooter". At 6-foot-4, he could run the floor, bang the boards and had an offensive game that gave opponents fits. One of the "Jones Boys" in Boston, Sam teamed with K.C. Jones in the Celtics backcourt to create havoc in NBA arenas around the country. Owner of ten NBA Championship rings including eight straight from 1959-1966, surpassed only by teammate Bill Russell's eleven. Owner of the sweetest bank shot ever, "Mr. Clutch" is considered one of the greatest Celtic legends of all-time. On the inside front tail of this dureen jersey is the "Horace Partridge Athletic Goods" manufacturers tag with the jersey size "44" on it. Across the front is "BOSTON." Below that and on the back of the jersey is the player number "24." All lettering and numbering is done in white tackle twill. No tagging remains in the matching green satin shorts. The jersey and shorts show good game-use and appear to have no alterations of any kind.
