1998-1999 Kevin Garnett Minnesota Timberwolves Game-Used Jersey
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $587.50
Minnesota Timberwolves road jersey worn by Kevin Garnett during the 1998-1999 season. Graded a perfect A10 by MEARS. The blue mesh jersey is lettered "Timberwolves" across the front and features the number "21" on the front and reverse. "Garnett" is lettered on the reverse above the number. All front letters and numerals are appliquéd in tricolor tackle twill (white/black/silver), while all reverse letters are appliquéd in white on black tackle twill. Located on the left front tail are a "Starter" exclusivity label (which reads "Designed and Tailored Exclusively for the Minnesota Timberwolves by Starter"), a "50" size tag, a flag tag reading "4 inch L.B.," and a white strip tag reading "98-99 Set #5." A pair of white Velcro tabs have been affixed to both the front and rear outer tails (used to connect to the shorts). Original and unaltered, the jersey displays moderate wear throughout. This jersey was originally obtained from Clayton Wilson, the Minnesota Timberwolves equipment manager, and is accompanied by a signed LOA from him, on official team stationery, attesting to its game-used provenance. Kevin Garnett is considered one of the best all-around players in the game today. Voted the 2003-2004 NBA MVP, Garnett has also appeared in ten All-Star Games and has been named to eight All-NBA teams. Garnett averaged 20.8 points and 10.4 rebounds per game during the lockout-shortened season of 1998-1999. Although he is now a member of the Boston Celtics, he currently holds Minnesota Timberwolves franchise career records for points (19,041), rebounds (10,542), assists (4,146), blocked shots (1,576), steals (1,282), and games played (927). Graded A10 by MEARS (5 point base grade plus 5 points for provenance). This is one of nine Kevin Garnett jerseys listed in the MEARS census, with six graded at this level. LOA from Dave Bushing & Troy Kinunen/MEARS. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $587.50
