As one of the most beloved athletes in Houston, Rudy Tomjanovich had a solid career with the Houston Rockets. In his 11 seasons with the franchise, “Rudy T” as he was so often referred to, averaged 17.4 points per game and later led the team to back-to-back NBA titles as head coach. Tomjanovich will also be remembered as a victim of one of the most violent incidents in NBA history, when he was punched in the jaw by Lakers’ forward Kermit Washington during an altercation that left him severely injured.

Offered is this home white Wilson Houston Rockets jersey that was worn by Tomjanovich during between 1974 and 1978. The front of this size 44 jersey features “ROCKEtS” and “45” sewn on in red and yellow tackle twill. The Wilson tag is sewn on the bottom front left tail and the sleeves and neck openings are lined in red/yellow/red borders. The back of the jersey has “45” and “RUDY T” sewn on in red and yellow tackle twill. “RUDY T” was used do to Tomjanovich’s long last name. Rudy T has signed the front of this jersey in black marker and inscribed “Best Wishes”. This jersey displays moderate game use and comes with a LOA from Mears, who have graded this jersey a perfect A10. There is also a LOA from Steve Grad of Beckett Authentication for the signature. How many years will it be before Rudy is enshrined at Springfield?
