I remember going down to Maple Leaf Gardens to watch the Globetrotters play. It was always so much fun as a kid to know you were going to see a really fun and cool show as they put on from coast to coast and world wide.
This beauty of a jersey was worn by Gerald Smith. His nickname was Deep as when he talked and noticed something cool, he would say, man that's deep. He first played with the club in 1976 and after 4 season in 1980 he hung up the high tops for good at the age of 29 as his knees just could take the rigours of the game. A rare 7 footer, he was a beast out there for the team.
The Jersey shows amazing wear and comes with the shorts that can only be described as 1970's to the core. The jersey has 3 extra inches added for the large humans comfort and the shorts have also been made to his specifications but very difficult to read the tailoring on the tag.
