Quick Overview

There are few things as tragic as an athlete dying young. Countless times, the game’s brightest stars have been taken much too early. Reggie Lewis is a prime example. While playing a pickup game in the off-season, Lewis collapsed and died of a heart attack. He was just starting to become the face of the Celtics organization when he died. This size “44” jersey was worn by Lewis in 1988-89, his second season in the league. Outstanding wear is shown with consistent puckering and fraying on the single-color white tackle twill identifiers. Of special note is the memorial band on the upper left shoulder stirrup. The Celtics incorporated the band in solemn tribute to the death of Celtic owner Alan Cohen's wife, Joan. "Follow Through" was said to be one of her favorite sayings. The phrase is embroidered on the special band in black lettering. Three tags are sewn into the tail: "88" (year), Celtics exclusivity, and size.
