2004/2005 Shaquille O'Neal Miami Heat Signed Home Jersey
Starting Bid - $200.00 , Sold For - $587.50
Miami Heat home jersey manufactured for Shaquille O'Neal for use during the 2004/2005 season. The white dry-fit jersey is lettered "Heat" on the front and features the number "32" on both the front and reverse. "O'Neal" is lettered on the reverse above the number. All letters and numerals are appliquéd in red on black tackle twill, with the exception of O'Neal's name, which is entirely in black. Located on the exterior left front tail are a "Reebok" label; a "60" size tag; a "2004-2005" year tag; and a tag reading "Length +4 inches." An official NBA patch appears on the upper right breast. O'Neal has inscribed the jersey "Shaquille O'Neal #32" in black marker (grading "8/9") on both the right breast and reverse (on the numeral "3"). Original and unaltered, the jersey displays light wear. The 2004/2005 season marked O'Neal's first with the Miami Heat after starring for eight seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers. O'Neal immediately made his presence felt in Miami, leading the club to 59 wins (second best total in the NBA) and a first place finish in the division. "Shaq" also led the league in field goal percentage (.601) while averaging 22.9 points and 10.4 rebounds per game. In 1996 O'Neal was named one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History and today he ranks among the career leaders in numerous categories, including points, offensive rebounds, defensive rebounds, field goals, and field goal percentage. Graded A5 by Mears (no post-1987 jersey can achieve a higher grade than A5 without additional provenance). LOAs from Dave Bushing & Troy Kinunen/MEARS and James Spence/JSA. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $587.50
