When Kevin Garnett was traded to the Celtics, this became my favorite jersey:

While throwbacks were still hot, I had this idea that “branded” Black Fives basketball jerseys might work. In other words, authentic style jerseys with just the Black Fives logo on the front, and no team identification.

So I made up a few samples like this one, in different colors, to see if people would like them. They did. I never produced these jerseys, because the throwback trend collapsed right around that time.

They were never made available for sale in stores or online.

But I did hold on to 2 of each of the mint condition samples (the one being auctioned is still in original packaging), because I thought they were so great. I still do!

These Black Fives jerseys had our famous Black Fives logo on the front and the number “5” on the back.

The front logo is embroidery on a layer of felt, and the back number is chain stitched on felt.

This jersey color is Celtics green. It has a green body and a white torso stripe, a black “5” on the back, and black trim.

As you may know, KG does a tremendous amount of charitable giving. In the past, his efforts to help inner city school kids in Boston and with Katrina Relief to build homes in New Orleans were memorable and successful.

So I decided to auction off this rare jersey on eBay, and to donate the entire proceeds to KG’s charity efforts. The donation will be from The Black Fives Foundation.

You can bid on this jersey by following the link below:

Limited Edition Green Black Fives #5 Jersey (Proceeds To Kevin Garnett’s Charity

I only have this in one size, 2X (54). The way it fits is that if you’re 6 feet, 2 inches tall then the jersey length will be about even with your fingertips.

But I’m not sure you’ll want to wear it. Maybe you’ll just want to get KG to sign it, then frame it.d

This auction will only go for a few days so go there now and place a bid:

Limited Edition Green Black Fives #5 Jersey (Proceeds To Kevin Garnett’s Charity

This auction will only last a few days. If you act quickly, you might even be able to wear this jersey while watching the N.B.A. Finals!

Celebrate KG, the Celtics, and charitable giving … all at once!

Thank you in advance!
