    1986 Pete Maravich Signed Personal Check. "If I play ten hours a day for ten years, and you play one hour a day for ten years and we meet on the basketball court, you're dead." - Pete Maravich

    Combining his father's "homework basketball" program with an unmatched work ethic and desire to be the best, Pete Maravich pushed the game of basketball to its furthest possible limits through his alter ego, Pistol Pete. The unbelievable numbers on record represent only a glimpse into the genius we witnessed for four NCAA seasons and ten NBA seasons, where Pete averaged 44.2 and 24.2, respectively.

    Signed less than a year before his Springfield induction and just fifteen months before his death, this "Pete Or Jackie Maravich" personal check for "$2,700" and payable to "Tanglewood" is signed in 9/10 blue ballpoint by Pistol Pete, an American original. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $1,000 - up.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
