Barack “Barry” Obama wore this jersey during his senior year at Punahou School as a member of the 1979 Hawaii State Champion boys’ varsity team. The jersey in itself represents the leadership and competitiveness he brought as a basketball player to become the President of the United States.
The Rawlings size 40 white mesh pullover features “PUNAHOU” and the number “23” on the front and reverse side with yellow and blue stripes, Punahou’s school colors. The historic game worn jersey and rare piece of American presidential history is estimated to sell at $150,000-$200,000 and is accompanied by a 1979 Punahou school yearbook, which includes photos of Barry Obama playing basketball in the same jersey.
As the nation’s first African-American president, Obama’s historic election into office and his two-term presidency sparked hope and change around the world. With wife, First Lady Michelle Obama and their two daughters Sasha and Malia, the Obama family left an enduring legacy of dignity and grace during their eight years in the White House.
During her years as the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama’s achievements and style made her not only one of the most iconic women in history but also the First Lady of Fashion.
