    1978-79 Pete Maravich Game Worn Sneakers. An included letter from Pete's widow Jackie reads as follows: "'Pistol' Pete Maravich played for the Jazz from 1973 until 1979. He wore these sneakers while playing for the New Orleans Jazz during the 1978-79 basketball season. They have remained in the Maravich family until now, when we are making them available to a serious collector for his or her enjoyment. I guarantee that the sneakers are 100% authentic, and this letter will serve as your certificate of authenticity." This would be the final year in New Orleans before the team's relocation to Utah, a rather miserable last-place season during which Pistol Pete's 22.6 points per game average was typically the lone bright spot. The late-career Converse All-Star gamers exhibit moderate wear and are tagged size "14 1/2" inside each. Letter of provenance from Jackie Maravich. LOA from Russek/Imperato.
