Dazzling for certain, Pete Maravich never accomplished the goals that he and his father Press set out to obtain. Injuries and alcohol slowed the Pistol down, but when the smoke cleared, he was still one of the best ever. Pete Maravich played his final season with rookie Larry Bird and the Boston Celtics and wore this jersey during this final Pre Season. The equipment manager obviously wasn’t a fan of Maravich or a student of the game, as the jersey was issued with a spelling error, “MARIVICH”.

During the era, Sand Knit was the official supplier of the Boston Celtics regular season game worn jerseys. Manufactured by Wilson (size 44, plus 3” extra length), this mesh body shell jersey bears the 1979-86 version of the Wilson tag and supports the dating. Other Wilson physical characteristics which differentiate this from Sand Knit products include the round tail (straight tail for Sand Knit) and the different style of player’s name font and numbering.

Final Grade MEARS A10: Jersey shows heavy game wear, with puckering to the numerals, lettering, and tagging.

Jersey originated from the personal collection of Ed Borash, a Boston area printer that supplied the team. Mr. Borash maintained several long term relationships with many Celtics and NBA players, and this item was gifted to him by the Boston Celtics.
