Offered is a Philadelphia 76ers home jersey dating to Julius "Dr. J" Erving's tenure with the team circa 1979-86. MEARS has conducted a full review of the jersey with our findings below...
Style: Home white mesh body shell with red/white/blue elastic ribbing on the neck and arm openings. Blue on red double tackle twill numbering and lettering with the exception of the single blue serif tackle twill player name, “ERVING” on reverse. Shirt compares favorably to period images of Dr. J during the 1979-1986 era.
Manufacturer (Wilson): Per the Official MEARS tagging database, the style of the Wilson tag was used during the 1979-1986 era. Wilson was the correct supplier of 1979-1986 Sixers shirts as verified by the following examples:
1980 76ers Dr J.
1980s 76ers Bobby Jones
1980s 76ers Moses Malone
Size (40): Shirt is tagged as a size 40 and is confirmed as being consistent when the shirt was actually measured. Size 40 was also found on period Dr. J shirts as compared to the following shirts which have entered the hobby:
1986-1987 Home Size 40
1986-1987 Road Size 40
1979-1985 Road Size 40
Game Wear: Shirt shows very lite signs of wear.
Final Grade (MEARS A5): Due to light game wear, 5 points were deducted from this shirt. (00B0220)
