1991 Charles Barkley Game Jersey 76ersGo Back
Authentication Status: Inconclusive.
When Magic Johnson was diagnosed with HIV in 1991, his friend Charles Barkley changed his uniform number from “34” to Magic’s “32” and wore it as a tribute.
On the left front tail is the “Champion” manufacturer’s tag with wash instructions and size “48”. “
Adjacent is a second tag with “YEAR 1991 Body Length+2 91-92”. 1991-92 Charles Barkley Game jersey should bear an exclusivity tag on the jersey tail. There does not seem to any reminisce of the tagging being removed or falling off. Size more appropriate for Barkley is a size “50”. There should have been a memorial band on the shoulder strap either removed or existing.
Across the front is “Philadelphia Sixers” sublimated on the shirt. Player tribute number “32” appears on both the front and back in white on blue tackle twill. Player name “BARKLEY” appears across the back in white tackle twill. At the left chest is the official NBA embroidered logo. Jersey is signed on the front.
Wear is minimal. The inconsistencies of size and exclusivity tag deem the jersey inconclusive.
