    1974-76 John Mengelt Game Worn Detroit Pistons Jersey. When your nickname is "Crash" there is little doubt you are a fan-favorite. John Mengelt would dive into the crowd, through the scorer's table or even into enemy territory to snare a rebound or loose ball. The NBA veteran wore this "Sand Knit [size] 42" jersey when he played in front of the home crowd in Detroit. Each of the identifiers is fashioned in two-color formation. The jersey may have been recycled as there are remnants of another name previously on back. Two labels appear in the tail, both of which are disengaged: Griswold Sand Knit (local distributor) and Sand Knit size. Not to be forgotten are the matching "Sand Knit [size] 36" shorts. "14" is markered on both tags and there is a "30" swatch. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
