The New Orleans Jazz franchise was launched as an expansion team in 1974. “Pistol Pete” Maravich a LSU alumni was tasked to christen the franchise. Before the start of their inaugural season, Maravich was obtained in a trade from the Atlanta Hawks. They bargained right because being in New Orleans (1974-79) allowed him the opportunity to establish himself as one of the game’s most electrifying players. During that time, he earned one scoring title (1976/1977), two All NBA First Team selections, and two All NBA Second Team selections.
Presented is a pair of Jazz game worn shorts from the Pistol Pete era with excellent provenance. They are a white mesh with yellow/green/purple piping (elasticized) around the edges. The Jazz note logo is showcased on the thigh in their team colors.
The tagging in the waistband shows they were made by Sand Knit Medalist – Size (32). The labeling matches exemplars from Jazz in the late 1970’s. They are hand numbered on the interior labeling #44 in a patch and #31 handwritten in black. So, because of the writing/source information the wear is attributed to both Pistol Pete Maravich (#44) his first season (1975) with the team and to Mel Counts (#31) later as these shorts were commonly recycled. There is also an additional handwritten number on the size tag but it is illegible.
They have a drawstring in the waistband and a liner in the interior crotch area. The garment shows solid wear throughout and are an exemplary rare display of player worn trunks. They originate from a team source and are a perfect investment opportunity in the world of Basketball HOFer game worn memorabilia.
