There is hope after all. As the injury-prone 2012-13 Los Angeles Lakers limp towards the end of a miserable season, Julien’s Auctions has announced an unimpeachable purple and gold playoff season date – May 31, 2013.
That’s when various items from the life and playing days of Laker great Elgin Baylor will go on auction. Articles include:
Baylor’s 1959 NBA All-Star Game MVP Trophy; Baylor’s 1971-1972 Los Angeles Lakers NBA Championship Ring; LA Lakers game-worn warm-ups; Lakers rookie-year shorts; and a pair of Baylor’s Adidas game-worn shoes bronzed and presented to him at a talk show appearance.
