Aaron James (born October 5, 1952) is a retired American professional basketball player. He spent his entire five-year NBA career with the New Orleans Jazz. James, a 6’8″ small forward, averaged 10.8 points and 4.1 rebounds over 356 career games from 1974 to 1979 with the Jazz, who drafted him out of Grambling State University with the 10th pick of the second round of the 1974 NBA draft. He was the team’s first ever selection. He was also selected by the Utah Stars in the third round of the 1974 ABA Draft.
Presented is an Aaron James game worn purple mesh road jersey (#23). He played for the Jazz between 1974-79. Otto Moore game-used memorabilia is truly a marquee piece in any collection. In provenance, the jersey is intricately tied to the New Orleans Jazz team right before they moved to Utah.
The front features the Jazz logo and jersey #23 sewn-on in vinyl. This was the first year the Jazz featured this font on their logo. It was simple with a thin “A” in Jazz with the note unique and different. The condition of the identifiers are solid because they are vinyl showing wear without cracking which is normal.
A double Sand-Knit tag is sewn in straight stitch on the left front tail. The top is the exclusively tag for New Orleans and the bottom showcases the proper [size] 23. The classic labeling is well worn and original. To highlight the team’s colors, green and yellow ribbing is around the arms and neck openings. Sand-Knit shorts are size 34 with # 23 stitch into the waistband. With matching green and yellow ribbing matching the jersey. Other teams that wore Sand-Knit jerseys in this era like the Bucks, Bulls, and Cavs had excessive cracking/puckering on the identifiers as well. Overall, a fresh-to-market marquee jersey that would help complete a top tier NBA game used collection. Authentication: 100% Authentic Team
These jersey & shorts were collected after the New Orleans Jazz moved and was stored by the team source. It has not seen the light of day until now
