    Description

    1986 Pete Maravich Signed Check to "Feed The Children."



    UPDATE: This lot will be accompanied by a Full Grading LOA from PSA/DNA (Gem Mint 10) and a signed letter of provenance from Maravich's widow Jackie.

    "Pistol Pete" Maravich holds a special place in the hearts of basketball fans and collectors. In addition to setting collegiate scoring marks that will never be broken, he was also a basketball prodigy who revolutionized the pro game with his shooting, passing and ball handling. It was no secret that Pete spent thousands of hours honing his skill (he himself put the number at 20,000 hours by the time he reached the NBA).

    After his playing days were over, Pete finally found peace in his troubled life after a religious experience. It was well known that Pete used to buy and distribute turkeys to those less fortunate on Thanksgiving and Christmas. The check on offer here is a testament to Pete's commitment to giving. Payable to "Feed The Children," it is signed by the Pistol in Mint blue ballpoint. The check (8x3") is matted and framed (13x21") with a color photo (8x10") of Pete shooting over Dr. J in 1980.
