    1970-71 San Diego Rockets Complete Warmup Attributed to Johnny Eagan. One of the most attractive NBA uniform styles and color combinations of the 1960's and 1970's was worn by the San Diego Rockets during their four-season run from 1967-71. After entering the league as an expansion team in 1967, the franchise fielded a roster which included future Hall of Famers Calvin Murphy, Rudy T, and The Big E. Unable to make the playoffs and with lackluster attendance figures, the Rockets moved to Houston following the 1970-71 campaign.

    The 1970-71 Rockets complete warmup on offer here includes a six-snap Kelly green satin jacket with "San Diego" delightfully sewn down the left front in yellow on white tackle twill. The back displays six snap components where the removable satin nameplate once resided. Meanwhile, ribbed gold/green/white trim decorates the two-snap-up and sleeve cuffs. Tagging on the interior snap-path includes "Rawlings 38," faded cloth swatch, and wash label. Matching pants combine to create an outstanding display ensemble. Attributed to guard Johnny Egan, the warmup was once part of the San Diego Hall of Champions Collection. Letter of provenance from the executor director of the San Diego Hall of Champions. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
