Alonzo Mourning Signed Game-Worn Shoes: black leather “Nike Air” size “18.5” accessories with a Nike “Swoosh” logo on the outer side of each (in white with yellow embroidery) and “33” embroidered to the heel of each in the same color scheme. Mourning has signed in the outer side of each in silver marker (both “9-10” strength ) and inscribed “#33.” Moderate wear is evident with hardwood “paint” transfers on the rubberized soles.
