It is well known that Press Maravich's almost obsessive drive to mold his son into an elite player dates to Pete's early childhood, and stories of his requirement that his son shoot 100 free throws in the family driveway before being allowed to go to bed begin any Pistol biography. Of course the partnership continued during Pete's LSU days, with father Press serving as varsity coach during the entirety of his son's service. The "Spalding Official Top-Flite 100" ball gifted to him by his grateful spawn is stamped with an identifying "LSU" and, prophetically, the logo of the "Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame," where Pete would be honored in two decade's time. The ball is boldly emblazoned with the historic "1138, '67 '68," beneath Pete's 8/10 inscription. The ball remains fully inflated and ideal for display, ready to serve as the focal point of any fine basketball collection. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Letter of provenance from Jackie Maravich.
