Default This guy hit the jackpot... Lew Alcindor rookie jersey

Not sure if you guys saw this article:
Alcindor's rookie jersey paying off for former Bucks' equipment manager

Quote:
In 1974, Pat McBride, then the youthful equipment manager for the Milwaukee Bucks, asked General Manager Wayne Embry if he could have some game-worn jerseys no longer in use.

Embry said yes. McBride, showing wisdom and business savvy beyond his 21 years, picked out a Lew Alcindor jersey; a jersey belonging to Oscar Robertson; and one belonging to Sam Williams. The jerseys were from Alcindor's rookie year and used through the Bucks' only championship season, and then never used again.

For good measure, McBride selected a pair of special goggles worn by Alcindor, who would later become Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

...

In an email, Kinunen said he gave the Alcindor jersey a perfect grade of "A" in terms of its authenticity and condition. He said he expects the jersey to sell for more than $100,000.

"This jersey is the unique and valuable Alcindor in the hobby," Kinunen said. "It is only one of a small handful of Alcindor/Jabbar Bucks jerseys, and the only rookie example. Being his first Bucks jersey and worn during the Bucks championship season, it is by far the finest Alcindor jersey in the hobby."
