Aptly dubbed “Mr. Moves,” former University of Michigan All-American Campy Russell wore this New York Knicks home jersey as he paced the NBA with a .439 3-point shooting percentage (1981-82). The white mesh pullover garment showcases a rare four-season style that features “21” sewn to the front and back in burgundy-on-blue twill, with “KNICKS” below the front number and “RUSSELL” below the back number in like fashion. Burgundy-and-blue striped stretch ribbed knit lines the collar and arm yokes. The vented left front tail is home to a “Gerry Cosby” distributor’s label, a “medalist/Sand-Knit” New York Knicks exclusivity tag and a size “46” flap tag. All original with no alterations, this rare and vintage Madison Square Garden gamer shows moderate wear.
