Larry Bird was given many nicknames throughout his career. But the one that has stuck above all others was given to him by Celtic Nation. It describes his abilities as a player and the lasting legacy he has left not only on the city of Boston, but on the world of basketball globally.
That nickname is “Larry Legend,” and it perfectly fits the man who was Rookie of the Year, league MVP, Finals MVP, Coach of the Year and Executive of the Year. The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame forward left an indelible mark on the game of basketball. And this jersey honors the man who was a 12-time All-Star and won the regular season MVP award three consecutive times (1984-86).
Bird has autographed this Boston Celtics green “Larry Legend” Swingman jersey in black paint pen. His signature is deemed authentic by virtue of Upper Deck Authenticated’s Five-Step Process.
