Larry Bird in HS. He made the varsity team as a 6-1, 135-pound sophomore. As a junior he sprouted to 6-5. By his senior year Bird reached 6-7, but did not lose any of his ball-handling ability and quickness. He averaged a ridiculous 30 points and 20 rebounds in his final year at Spring Valley.

Nahant revolvers, TT-33 pistols, and the top rear has either a Luger or a Lahti, picture isn't clear enough to make out.

T-33 couldn't be in 1921. I think on top is Colt1911 and bottom is more like german Langenhan or FN Browning 1903
