A gold medal winner on the 1968 USA Olympic Basketball team, 1st round pick in the 1969 draft, and a member of two World Championship Boston Celtics basketball team, Jo Jo White was a winner. This jersey was worn by White during his final training camp with the Boston Celtics. He was traded to Golden State Warriors during the 1979 season.

During the era, Sand Knit was the official supplier of the Boston Celtics regular season game worn jerseys. Manufactured by Wilson (size 44, 3” X Length), this mesh body shell jersey bears the 1979- 86 version of the Wilson tag and supports the dating. Other Wilson physical characteristics which differentiate this from Sand Knit products include the round tail (straight tail for Sand Knit) and the different style of player’s name font and numbering.

Final Grade MEARS A10: Jersey shows heavy game wear, with puckering to the numerals, lettering, and tagging. Jersey is autographed on the front and reverse, Jo Jo White #10.

Jersey originated from the personal collection of Ed Borash, a Boston area printer that supplied the team. Mr. Borash maintained several long term relationships with many Celtics and NBA players, and this item was gifted to him by the Boston Celtics.
