1992-1993 Harlem Globetrotters - Meadowlark Lemon Game-Worn Shooting Warm-up Adidas Uniform (Jacket & Pants)(Incl. Meadowlark Lemon LOA - Benefits His Non-Profit Organization)
The Harlem Globetrotters were started in 1926 when Abe Saperstein organized a team called the Savoy Big Five. They would play exhibition games in Chicago's Savoy Ballroom (hence, the name). They wore red, white and blue striped uniforms right out of Saperstein's father's tailor shop. Meadowlark Lemon joined the team in 1955 and played with them in his first stint until 1979. He rejoined the team playing 50 games in 1993 season with the last games played in March of 1993. (not 1994 as many internet channels report).
This colorful game-worn Warm-Up (shirt and pants) was worn by Lemon in 1993. This blue button down front of the jacket features red-white tackle twill HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS name and two red/yellow stars. Classically, 3 stars are sewn on the back of the jacket above the red/white flap collar. An Adidas logo is on the left sleeve. Tagging in interior is Adidas Extra Large Tall with his jersey number written in black felt tip "36".
Last Chance Folks!! This is the LAST of Meadolark's collection of Harlem Globetrotter Game-Worn memorabilia. The warm-up snap pants (interior tie ups) features the yellow/red/white striping which matches the jacket. "GLOBETROTTERS" is also present (sewn on in red) vertically showcased in a baby blue accent. The same Adidas tag appears in the waistband of the pants which are XL with "36" written in black felt tip.
Meadowlark has kept few very personal mementos from his years with the Trotters. All Globetrotter collectibles are desirable and always get scooped up immediately and are typically not offered once they get into a collection.
Coming directly from the source, the provenance is unquestionable. This will include a letter from Meadowlark Lemon and the sale will benefit His Non-Profit Orginaztion. Also upon request Mr. Lemon will include a signed 8x10 photo and he will autograph the item upon request.
