In 2003, Meadowlark Lemon was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame as a contributor. Lemon was one of the most popular and best-known of the Globetrotters. In 2000, he received the John Bunn award, the highest honor given by the Basketball Hall of Fame outside of induction itself. In 2001 the Globetrotters honored Lemon with a “Legends” Ring and by retiring his jersey (#36). Now that we have reminded you of this great legends contribution to one of the greatest games on earth, let us entice you with his 1993 game-worn Globetrotter uniform. Meadowlark went back to the Globetrotters for 50 games when Manny Jackson bought the team in 1993. That year he continued to play with the same flare as he did in the Globetrotter's Hey Day. Designed exclusively for this year alone, this fact makes this jersey that much more desirable. One year styles always are wanton by jersey's collectors as a whole. Jersey has the "HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS" sewn on the front with white star on the shoulder strap under collar. Red/white/red striping comes across the blue nylon jersey creating the Harlem flash that they are best known for. Tagging is stitched into the shorts and jersey and is made by Joe Capades Costume Studio Inc. Hollywood, CALIF with the allowance of space for "NAME YEAR MEASUREMENTS" to be written onto the jersey. This was obviously done to keep track of the jersey's. Written in blue pen is "LEMON"
To seal the deal, Meadowlark will personally give his own letter attesting to the wear of the jersey and he will autograph the jersey for the new owner of this little piece of Globetrotter history.
Last but not least, pictured is the actual jersey worn by Legendary Harlem Globetrotter Meadowlark Lemon as he prepares to put the moves on the Washington Generals' Tim Burkhart during their game on Feb.13,1993, at New York's Madison Square Garden in New York..
